Bloggerlism —

As word of this disease spreads, it is my fond hope that my fellow blogger The Foo gets the credit for coining this phase, which if you check Google you’ll see that he obviously deserves the credit.

As long as we can have our 12-step meetings online, I’m okay with admitting that I might struggle with this addiction — it seems better than saying I have a problem with crank or getting caught by Dateline as far as I’m concerned!

A couple of weeks ago, I found this blog by So Very Kerry on myspace. The debate is still internally on as far as my feelings about myspace, so please don’t take this link suggestion as a recommendation of myspace. Whether it’s done more harm than good is still up for discussion. What Mr. Kerry did, however, was enlighten me about the dangers of carrying a camera around with the sole purpose of collecting future blog topics. (Pictures of my weekend will be coming along shortly.)

However, with that said, I present to you Kerry from California’s “so very tempting” list of ways to know if you may need to stand up in front of a group of people you don’t know and say something to the effect of “Hi, I’m (insert name here), and I’m a blogaholic.”

As a quick aside, the term “bloggerlism” should not be confused with “bloggerism”— a completely different term that some other fellow named Steve Kayser is taking credit for. Humph. Truthfully, I’m a tad offended that he would suggest that my linking to a billion other sites means that I’m plagiarizing. I haven’t plagiarized since Mrs. Hawley’s stupendously boring history class in the 11th grade . . . I think.
