Folks I have come to the conclusion that I am a computer addict. I’m addicted to blogging and got addicted to things like Entre card and Twitter. Well to correct said addiction I have quite twitter.and will be leaving Entre card when the last advert is run. So there for i will just be content to reading blogs and writing my blog(s)
Yep it all can be very addictive. Sometimes you have to watch your time or you will be sucked into it for hours. 🙂
Hi my name is Sandee and I\’m a computer addict too. Nice to meet you Mike. I can so relate. Now if I could just quit a few things.Just take care of you Mike. Big hug. 🙂
Valarie Lea, that trouble is that I do sit in front of my computer for hours at a time.sometimes it doing the entreCard drops,reading blogs,and playing the games I have installed on the computer.
Sandee,thanks for stopping by.I have taken the first steps in stopping some of the stuff.The twitter acount is gone. The Entrecard site will be shut down on the 22nd of this month.
Congrats Mike, for taking charge and doing something about your addiction, I wish I could do the same, LOL. I hope to still see you around, Random ThoughtsMira\’s Web JournalA Moment to ExhaleMy Barefoot JourneyMy Kitchen TableScrappy Mommy
i have a pleasant surprise for you! http://blanne1126.blogspot.com/2009/01/scent-sational-hit-or-miss.html 😉
Hey I followed you before you joined entrecard. I\’ll be around anyway. 😉
I will still be visiting you Mike whether you are on Entrecard or not 🙂 I love reading your blog and hope this will free you up to spend more time doing the things you want. Here\’s a confession for you…I am an addict too 🙂 Have a great day Mike.
I can relate too, I\’m addicted just like you. 🙂 Good for you to try to do something about it. I\’ll miss the dropping, but will visit anyway!
oh man i know so well about being a computer addict! I to am one, and i ended up cutting back on line a lot because it was ruling my days! I to had to leave groups, i left all but blogger for awhile. I now started up with sparkspeople, which is a place to help people live healthier lives, and has a wonderful support system in place. I still try to limit my time even there and on my blog as you have seen.Hugs my friend.
well, I can certainly understand the addicting nature of some of these things. I have a friend who warned me about how blogging can become an addiction, so I am trying not to obsess about it too much. I still am not sure how I feel about the entrecard stuff. On the one hand, I like the number of visitors it brings me, but you only get a handful of those folks who actually read and comment. I will keep with the entrecard for a while. I used to try to drop cards on everyone who dropped on me that day, but now I only drop if I have the time to do it.
Wish you very well on your wish to stop computer addiction. it can indeed be very frustrating sometimes, when you want to stop, but you can\’t and keep on reading, blogging, reading, etc. i do that sometimes too, I have to really remind myself to stop.Thanks a lot for the Entrecard credits. You are so generous.
I don\’t Twitter – cannot for the love of me see the use for it. As for entrecard, I read the blogs I have bookmarked, I click on SOME of the entrecard thingies but not all, entrecard has helped me find other folks and folks have found me, I say keep it just don\’t feel compelled to do x-number of drops or even advertise everywhere. I\’m very selective about were I advertise, who I drop on and who\’s ads I accept. I use it mostly as a search tool for blogs.
wow,take a day off and man do the comments add up.thank you all for stopping by. Mira,Blanne,Grandy,Dori,Tink,Dickster1961,Betchi,and Broadway Matron.I\’m taking the steps I taken so the this box in front of me does not control my life as much as it has.Than again this is not as bad as some of the adictions that I have had in the past,such as drinking and smoking.these two can cause some life threatening problems.
You are so funny. I need that. There could be worse additions. HA! Like mine. FOOD!
JC,food is a super good friend of mine as well,or I would not bee almost 100lbs over weight.
I\’m proud to have my avatar on your sidebar today Mike. For the very last time. Have a terrific day. Big hug. 🙂
Sandee,I\’m glad to have your avatar here as well.shutting down the entrecard is some thing I have to do.
I too am a computer addict but I gave up smoking already and I\’m not quite ready to give up the computer. I am spending less time on the computer though and spending more time reading books (no reading is not reading, not in my eyes that is).I\’m sorry you are experiencing issues with your health that make this decision for you but know that I will still drop by and know that you will be very missed in this EC community.My deepest heartfelt friendship goes to you Mike.Deb
Mammaflo,thank you.I mananged to beat 2 addiction.Alchol in 1990 and smoking in 1994. I\’m not giving up my computer,just some of the stuff that I was doing.
