How long does it take to form an addiction? I have only been blogging for 4 days and I think I need rehab. I don't want rehab;
I like my addiction. Isn't that the first sign of an addiction?
I have been sitting HERE for 4 days:
Remember in my first post, when I was self disciplined and wouldn't read blogs until chores were completed? I haven't left this spot, except to watch The Bachelorette (good ending, by the way) and sleep. Chloe brings me water and Steve prys my hands off the keyboard for dinner.
Blogging is bringing me satisfaction from recording thoughts and events that are important to me. I think I have been hungry for it, and didn't know it. In addition to providing an artistic outlet, it is nourishing something even more basic.
All cultures, since ancient times, are compelled to leave their writings and art for posterity......it is deeper than our DNA, it is our Spirit, yearning to share our mortal experience with others, present and future. Journaling provides introspection that improves us, as individuals and as members of a community. I think I'm beginning to understand why the Church urges us to journal.
No, I didn't get all of this in just 4 days, it was already there; I have just found a forum to release it. It has been a wonderful, unexpected blogging benefit.
My head is full of ideas. I am thrilled that I can digitally save old photos and narrate them. I am sure it will slow down, but for now,
I am truly invigorated.
Newly acquired skills:
-uploading and editing photos from Photobucket
-drafting and saving ideas as they come (lots)
-schedule drafts for future post
-re size photos
Still want to learn how to:
-Put personal cutout photo in my header
-Get LARGE FONTS other than the lame ones in blogger
-Settle on a background I really like
-Figure out why I lose photos when I spellcheck
- I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
