Do You Suffer From Blogging Withdrawal?

Side effects may include runny nose, itchy scalp, bloody stool…

Over the past few weeks the majority of my time has been consumed with the purchase of a new house. Both stressful and exhilarating, the process has left me with precious few minutes to attend to my blogging duties – both paid and unpaid. Each night, despite my home-buying excitement, there was a dull nagging. A sort of gnawing at my soul. The culprit? My lack of blog production.

Like a rapidly-growing tumor, blogging has become part of who I am; like it or not.

Don’t get me wrong, I can still delineate between an Internet-free life event (Wedding, funeral, family birthday, etc.), but withdrawing from the activity that has become such an integral part of my life, has become a bit of a challenge.
