Remember this post where I said I have an addictive personality? I've never been more aware of that than I have over the last few weeks. Even in this post, I came close to admitting it, but here it is:
My name is Michelle, and I'm addicted to blogging.
And I do mean that, even if it comes across as joking. I check my email 100 times a day in case someone has commented, and I constantly check my site meter to see who's been visiting. I spend too much time reading other people's blogs, writing new entries. It's taken over my life, and it needs to get better. Because for everytime I check my email and don't have new comments, or everytime I see that no one has visited my blog since I last checked, I feel like a failure.
I don't want to come across as melodramatic (god knows I've been called that a million times, and for good reason) but it's just a heads-up, I guess - I won't be blogging as much. I'm sorry I won't be commenting as much either. I'm going to take Stephanie's advice, and review my priorities and re-dedicate myself to what's important in my life. I need to stop looking to other people to make myself happy or to validate me as a person. I need to make this blog less important to my level of happiness and be less hard on myself. I'll still post, even if it's just on Mondays for the new Meet the Guys instalment (because I can't stop now, when there's 14 to go) and I'll still keep updated with all of your blogs as well, just not as often. You can always email me, address in profile - and I'd love to keep in touch that way. Or just sit around and wait for my next entry! Thanks everyone!
