Hello!  My name is Carol, and I am a Blogaholic!  Yes, that's right.  I am totally addicted.  I think about blogging morning, noon and night.  I wake up in the morning,  and the first thing I do is check my blog to see who visited.  I can't eat without thinking about all those blogs featuring delicious foods like Once in a Blue Moon, or Cuisine Kathleen.    I can't look around my home or even my garden without seeing an opportunity for something to blog about.  I can't even leave my house without taking my camera..... just in case!  I dream of words like widgets and gadgets!   It's driving me crazy........  But, it's a great crazy!

The good news is..... I know I'm not alone!  Come on, admit it!  It's OK!  We're all addicted!  And what a great addiction it is!
To celebrate this wonderful addiction,  I'm having a Giveaway! A blogger's paradise..... A copy of Artful Blogging! Have you seen this magazine?  I think you'll love it as much as I do!  
Are you addicted? Do you know someone who is?  Tell me.... tell the world..... trust me you'll feel better!    I'll pick a random winner on Sunday, January 18th.   Now, where was I?....... Oh yes..... back to the sidebar!

I did not know this magazine existed! Enter me in your drawing. And yes I am addicted too. No wonder why I have a hard time getting things done around the house, I have to check my blog and read others blogs. And like you, the first thing I do is turn on the computer when I wake up, then I go to the bathroom. LOL!

Carol said...

Hi Carol, this is Carol! LOL! Yes, I am addicted to blogging! Your giveaway magazine looks very interesting. I would love getting some new ideas for my blog. I love blogging, it has helped me transition into retirement from teaching. I do miss making lesson plans & presenting to students, so writing a post each day has made me very happy.

My name is Marilyn, and I'm a Blogaholic! :-) Please enter me into your drawing, as well.

I find the more I explore, the more addicting it becomes. It's pure joy to find blogs that interest me, challenge me or inspire me. It's truly a great community!

Hi Carol, it's really funny that I got to your blog and to this particular post today.
I've just created my own blog a few days ago, and posted my first text yesterday night. Throughout the whole day today, at work, I was just thinking about the time it would be night so I could go back to it!
Please enter me in your drawing.
Btw, your blog is superb!

Hi Carol,
How sweet of you to mention me in your blog! Thanks for stopping in, and please enter me...I am a newbie blogger and can use all the help I get!
I know what you mean about blogging about everything I look at, LOL

DJ said...

I haven't seen the magazine at a store, but I do see the cover on a lot of blogs.

I am very addicted to blog hopping. I should definitely start my own blog soon. I enjoy photography, so it would be a great way to use one of my favorite hobbies.

OK - I'm signing up for a blog now. I need a creative outlet, and I know I would meet so many wonderful people.

Peace and blessings,

I go to my blog the first thing in the morning and it's the last thing I do before I crawl into bed at night.

Every place I go I think if I want to blog about it. I see things in pictures now.

Yes I'm addicted!

I would love to win your giveaway. I've never read that magazine and would love to.

I'll list your giveaway on my blog for you.

once in a blue moon... said...

how funny! i am trying to de-addict! it is like a never ending book, the more you read, the more you still need to read! i blogged the other day that there are times you just need to get dressed, head outdoors and have a life unplugged!

thanks for mentioning me too~

blogging is fun, but i bet there will be bloggers anonymous popping up soon! actually our springlike weather here has kept me offline, but i do get pangs of guilt though when not reading in blogsville!

Mona said...

Sometimes I get this feeling that I don't really KNOW what blogging is. Not really. A magazine? I can I be addicted? I have just been doing this a matter of..what...a bit over a month?
Right? Right? course I'm not addicted. It's nearly 11 O'clock and I should be in bed..but..

Hi, my name is JAN and I am a BLOG-AHOLIC. I am much the same way as you. Getting up in the morning and traipsing off to the puter, to see who commented and to make sure my post is up and running. I am constantly fussing over how it looks and decorating it much like my home! You'd think I actually lived there!!! LOL!!! If I did, I'd certainly LOVE it!

I love give-aways and thank you for running it!!!

Hi Carol
I saw your comment on Naps on a Porch and thought I'd stop by and visit. I am addicted to blogging too! I'd love to win your giveaway. It is a great magazine. I've leafed through it at Borders a couple of times, but couldn't spend that much for a magazine! Maybe I'll win yours.

Mimi said...

Just got here and know that I'm gonna have a good time! I'm a blogging "baby" so I'll be needing all the help I can get!

I got tickled in bed last night and laughed out loud! My husband wondered what I was laughing about..."something I read on a blog" I said :)
It is wonderful to have all those secret friends out there, isn't it?!
