Hi, I'm Stacy...and I'm a blog-aholic.....
Generally, I do something creative in the evenings after Kenzie goes to bed ~ but lately I couldn’t face the fabric bomb that I seemingly detonate throughout my house whenever I get crafty. Fabric, pins, machines, scissor, beads, & more fabric everywhere!!! Instead, I have been mindlessly wandering the internet. Oh. My. Gawd. There is a wealth of eye candy handmade goods, witty people, (and even senseless trash) out there! It’s like a spider web of possibility...I’m trapped, wandering each web connection, and (sigh) I -don’t think- I want to escape!
I used to limit myself to a daily blog route of 10 favorites on my Explorer Link Bar. I’d conduct my tour looking for new posts over a morning coffee, while on a mind-numbing phone call, or maybe while cooking dinner. This week, I discovered Bloglines.com – where you can subscribe to your favorite blog feeds. No longer must I ..wander.. to each site to see if there is a new post. Bloglines indicates when there is new material on the sites I’ve subscribed to. And, since they’ve made it so easy – this here Junkie proceeded right on out for more “fixes.”
Since my high school girlfriend, Cindy, is probably not afraid of being a skapegoat, I’m pinning the blame on her. She clued me in to dooce.com, which I still read. My gosh, that Heather is a fascinating ball o’ fire!! I’d tripped on a few other artists sites/diaries before that, and from the exhausting link list on the left – one might assume that I’m fairly experienced at wasting time online. I thought I had safeguards in place to keep that under control (i.e. the 10 blog rule) – but bloglines just enabled the addict. Bloglines has Pushed. Me. Over. The. Edge. I mean, I have a Master’s in Counseling for cripes sakes. I can realize impulse control issues where they exist. Chuckle, chuckle.
One of these days I shall most definitely do a little house-keeping in my link column and give some credit to these girls. Amazing women who do what I love to do – often times, so much better than me. I glean inspiration from some, like the parenting views of others, and I’m happy calling the rest – my imaginary friends. I’ve swapped handmade items and comments with few, and by golly, some have even ogled my creations and/or darling toddler!

Also, some folks (thanks MollyChicken and Chunky Monkey) have informed me that my comments section was unfriendly to non-bloggers. I have opened up comment capabilities to anyone. So, feed my addiction with more inspirational sites....say hi....or just admit you’re lurking here. (yes, I know there are readers...or perhaps just one avid follower who visits 62 times a day?? he..he..)
If that’s the case, I guess we both need to be referred straight to a good blog-aholics group.....
