Top ten reasons why blogging may be dangerous to your health

10.  Neglecting other creative ventures (creative decompensation);

9.  Aggravation/development of carpal tunnel syndrome from all of that keyboarding;

8.  Staying indoors instead of going outside to see what the rest of the world is up to (loss of touch with reality);

7. Spending more time with your laptop than your friends (leading to the breakdown of important social relationships);

6.  Acquiring that pasty indoor phosphorescent complexion (possible Vitamin D deficiency);

5.  Staying up too late in a state of post-toastiness (resulting in a mindless pattern of blog-/tag-surfing that could lead to cerebral numbing);

4.  Neglecting important household tasks (e.g., cleaning out the catbox);

3. Sitting in one position for so long that your legs get stiff or your butt falls asleep (may not apply to those under 35 years of age);

2.  Feeling the constant need to upgrade/improve your blog (based upon the ever-expanding sense that everyone else’s blogs are: (a) cooler; (b) more clever; (c) more colorful; (d) more profound; (e) edgier; (f) more visually striking; (g) more accessible to more people (resulting in an endless search for the most common denominator); ad nauseum);


1.  I forget. (Ability to retain information/ideas for only a limited amount of time).  (But that might just be incipient dementia on my part.)

Tomorrow’s forecast:  RAIN

    Thanks for the list…it is a good reminder to be clear to oneself on why we blog to begin with!
