- You check your site 20 times a day to see if there are more comments or if a new post magically appeared without you having to write it.
- You finally get ready for bed by 1 am and decide to blog for an hour or so before turning in.
- You spend your whole night dreaming you were reading and commenting on other people’s blogs.
- You realize that your name doesn’t match your social security on the bank’s customer service line because you gave your blog name.
- You start calling your kids by their blog names.
- You look for the comment box at the bottom of your voter’s ballot.
- You start blocking unwanted comments from your spouse.
- Your family starts thinking of your computer as an appendage to your body.
- You have a sign posted on your door that says This home is open to invited people only.
- You read a comment to a post that says, Honey, I’ve been trying to get hold of you for weeks! When’s dinner?
- Your blogroll is longer than your grocery list.
