- I hate my blog because it demands even more attention than my most needy human friends.
- I hate my blog because even when I think I don't have the energy to write or post anything, it forces me to come up with something.
- I've lost more sleep staying up late working on a post than I have staying out partying with my friends.
- I hate my blog because when I need to be thinking about work or my family or my friends, I'm often plotting my next post.
- I hate my blog because it causes me to write things like this, and then realize that they're true.
- My blog is what gets me out of bed when I could sleep in, so I can put together an outfit worth sharing with people.
- When I want to curl up on the couch with a movie and my red wine, my blog puts me in a cab to a fabulous event in 4 inch heels.
- My blog forces me to approach strangers at social events in the hopes of building my network.
- I hate when my family has more questions about my blog than they do about my actual life.
- I hate the way my blog sometimes just deletes a post I've been working on for an hour.
- I hate that my blog has turned me into an unapologetic Twitter addict.
- I hate that my blog makes me feel like I have to scroll through every story in my Google Reader.
- My blog occasionally makes me view purchases as potential posts, not fabulous additions to my wardrobe.
- My blog forces me to be much better at time management than I would be otherwise.
- I hate my blog for causing me to nerd-out about things like traffic counts, SEO, HTML code, widgets, referring URLs and retweets.
- I hate my blog for pulling me into this crazy, fashion-and-internet obsessed community that I'll probably never be able to leave.
Basically, my blog doesn't allow me to be the lazy, sleepy, anti-social person that I could definitely become. My blog keeps me on my toes, keeps me dressing sharp and introduces me to new people constantly. Does that make it my better half? Am I once again referring to ways in which my blog takes the place of a human man? This seems to be a running theme in my digital life. Ultimately though, my blog has allowed me to tap into and explore a part of myself that I may never have known otherwise, and for that, I love it!
