I seem to have replaced my obsession with wine with an obsession with sober blogs. I've recently found a few more that I really like and have added them here on my page. Makes it much easier for me to find them, see when new posts have been added and share them with anyone who might be reading this. There are SO MANY out there, I'll never get to them all.
Speaking of people who might be reading this, I'm up to 1248 pageviews (yes quite a few of them are from me clicking on my own blog!) It's a relatively small number I'm sure but to me it's huge considering a month ago I wasn't sure I wanted anyone to see it. Now I get so excited with each new pageview and especially when someone comments (yes, I'm talking to you!) I'm also up to 10 countries and I can't help but wonder if someone in Palestine, Venezuela or Japan is actually reading this and interested or stumbled upon it by mistake?
It took a while to get comfortable but now I am often commenting on other blogs. Hopefully people won't get sick of me! I've a had a couple of people who have left just one comment and I'm left wondering if they've been back? Are they still sober?
When I am falling asleep at night I think about future posts I want to make. When I have a thought/feeling/experience I imaging writing about it and what I would say.
Of course the best part is reading someone else's words and feeling like I could have written them myself and this happens on a daily basis!
So is this a healthy obsession? I certainly think that connecting with others is helpful. I do however feel a strong need for people to like me. I certainly don't want to get wrapped up in feeling self-worth based upon how many hits or comments I get. I'm sure like all things balance is key.
