O yeah...it's good to be "BAD" lol
It's my therapeutic!
As I just shared in an other discussion that I have been blogging for about three years. I also think blogging can become an addiction. I have a job now but when there is no such activity I too spend to much of my time on reading and commenting on blogs.
During my teenage I used to be addicted to Cricket which is a sport. I used to spend to much time while playing, watching or talking about the sport.
Sport is good but addiction ?
It's apparent that English is not my first language, but if I am able to express a little , much of the credit goes to blog sphere.
Though sure it should not disconnect us from real life. My friends , my guests ,my relatives sitting beside me certainly deserve my attention lot more than a person sitting in front of digital display thousands of miles away from me.
Blogging has certainly helped many unknown figures who had no other medium of expression to be a part of educating and learning. But addiction is a problem. It should not effect our studies, jobs etc.
Since I am not posting every day I would say No. Personally, I think 99% of the "Disorders" out there are a scam to ring up more money for the medical profession. Of course, we are about to test that theory (BAD). Blogger has been down most of the day today. Like most addictions, there should be blogger withdrawal
I'd say I don't suffer from IAD but my broad band provider would disagree as they've just charged me 3 times in a row for going over my internet allowance! Ooops...
As for 'BAD' I think anything can become an addiction, if it's not kept in check. I think if you suffer from blog addiction though, it does seem to ruin the quality of your material...
I am slowly getting addicted to the internet for sure. Blogging too. :-)
after reading all above, i think i am sort of addictive BUT i try to complete my daily things...If u can manage time and yet do everything in a 24 hrs span, then its OK..
For me, blogging helps me put my thoughts in order and gets some weight off my chest.
I defiantly enjoy blogging, promoting my blog and talking to fellow bloggers so yes I must have a bad case of BAD. You know you have a blogging problem when you read your favorite blog founders Wikipedia article. If your wondering it's Rob Malda the owner of slashdot.org
I could spend days just editing posts, promoting, and checking my stats. I'm enthralled by it.
If there were no Internet or Blogging for us, I'm pretty sure we would be addicted for something else...
Natural Human Behavior... :)
I don't think I have BAD so much as I have RBAD... lol "Restarting blogs addiction disorder". I find it hard to stick to a single blog or platform and I keep restarting.
Of course, this also applies to other things such as video games too... looks like I just have a fear of commitment...
I am definitely a blog addict. My day consists of writing blog posts, reading blog posts, SEO, working with affiliate programs, thinking about blogging, and sometimes just sitting here staring at the screen....when I go to bed I lie awake thinking about the next day's blogging plans.....yup. I need help !!!!!!
But I love it.
Not blogging per se, but the overall internet usage of a person. Addictive to the point that it's within a person's motivation to be in the net always...a habit.
I get my blogging/pinterest/facebook/polyvore kick during the week and kinda disapear from the virtual world on weekends.
I tell my friends not to tell me about new sites because I don't want to get hooked on anything else! Thank goodness I never took to twitter ;)
I admit that people spending more time on net rather involving in any other activity and because of that very bad impact on body and mind is seen.
lolz....lot's of WEB addictions
video tubes addiction
i also heard about rehabilitation centers around the world who helps in such cases
I think I may be a victim :) always checking my stats to see the number of visitors every minute.
Wow.. I guess I must have the opposite! I find I need to muster up some motivation to blog sometimes!
I am also addiction of blogging :) my nice blog:- gandtnews4u.blogspot.com
not that i'm aware of, but i'd rather suffer from BAD than IAD. it's more productive than just staying online doing non sense cr*p.
Hey I agree that blogging is addictive to get diverted I divert myself to some other habits like playing outdoor, sitting with pets, Doing gardening work and aquarium cleaning....By this I don't touch my Computer for 1 week and after I will start blogging with a fresh mind.
Its all about the way we formulate ourselves. Since the first day of sparing time for blogging, we should be noticing whether we lose any special things due to involvement in blogging. If do so, we have to sacrifice blogging in that time. Badly we do inverse of that :(
I am a "BAD" boy.Really some times i forget to eat , hours and hours i spend time in writing and publishing articles and designing my websites.i was effected by health problems very much.But, now i controlled it very much and recovered.
my suggestion is -- all internet users must be punctual and follow the time thats it all we need.
Have a nice blogging.
