What is it about posting a blog everyday that makes people think that all bloggers do is... blog?!
If I wrote in my journal everyday would people say "All you do is journal. Don't you have other things you ought to be doing?"
Right. They wouldn't... because journaling is an acceptable hobby.
Maybe I'm just getting tired of all the little comments that people make and am venting a little. But just to clarify... I DO NOT spend all my time on the internet.
In fact, I probably spend an hour in the morning checking my email and doing a post for here. Then I get up, do my mom thing and go about my day. Sometimes in the afternoon I get online again when the kids are all occupied elsewhere or the baby is sleeping, but usually I nap with her. Then I check my email again before I go to bed.
Obviously this isn't all the internet I do... I sometimes watch NetFlix, I sometimes play games with friends, I sometimes even chat online with my sister. BUT I do not spend every waking minute gripped to my monitor reading every blog there ever was created.
And if I did, why is that unacceptable? I mean what is the iphone, ipad, nook, and the like if not means by which the majority of society can sit in front of their screens for longer? I suppose their forms of self indulgence are just more acceptable than mine. --I'd like it noted that I don't own any of those things.--
Am I the only blogger out there who gets this sort of reception? Or are there others out there that find the public perception of them to be that of an addict?
