very good observation, bellur.
thankfully many of the points in ur list didn’t identify with me. now that you have mentioned the symptoms of a blog-addict, it would be nicer if you can put in a little extra effort and state the cure too… 🙂 I’m sure there are many who can benefit by that.
though its in context, i’m a bit hesitant to give reference to this link of mine – http://anoopha.blogspot.com/2007/06/why-cant-i-blog-frequently.html
because, as per the current subject of your post it would mean giving extra publicity and extra hits to my webpage, signs of a blog-addict. but im willing to take the risk for the greater good of all… ;p
Fixing a movie outing with your spouse over the comments’ section of a post is what had me crackling. And well, looks like I fit into 100% of the so-called “blog addict”. I always prided myself on being a person who could never get addicted to anything and today Rk you have totally punctured the ego of Mysorean the Great! 😀
(PS: Use of Mysorean instead of Adi!)
Some Points are very true.. I guess u have experienced it. In India CGM-Consumer Generated Media is Minimal. only 2 out of 100 PPl are using Computer and very few are into blogs. In future the Scinario will be different. The Indian blogs are Quite intresting then the others. Only thing is Specialization is lacking. In future more Professionals are expected to blog. So, Watchout Guys……..
● I’ll post an article to my blog soon after getting jealous on comments written in a colleague’s(Naren) blog.
● Will write article so that I can send the link to my girlfriend, give a impression to her and show her that what kind of a scholar I am.
● I invite my HR to write article to get her noticed about my writing skills during appraisal time, even if she says she’s busy/not interested.
● I take screenshots of good comments posted on my blog.
● I feel more happy when my friends say me a “Blog Master” than a “Good Designer”.
● I switch on my computer not to check my mails, but to see the comments & blog stats.
● I love to write articles at home than working on a good paying freelance project.
● Whether I’m traveling or visiting a tourist place, I will be stitching the words to write into the blog.
● I easily get demotivated when I receive no comments/someone writes negative for an article.
● I do not repent of waking-up late & missing my morning workout because I was writing article till midnight.
● Will plan out a schedule to make research & write a new post instead of planning to get prepared for certification exam.
Hope this suffices for the moment. Will write more when experienced blog addiction heat.

I could not stop myself nodding my head and giggling and sometimes laughing out loudly on the BA list and the comments section. Please write a deaddiction list too. The best one was ‘you are dying and the last words m..y..b…l…o…g…..’ hahahaaa.
