I had every intention of writing at least one blog a week. I really need to tune up my writing skills anyways so one post a week wouldn't be all that bad, except the wonderful (yet oh so distracting) blogger giveaways was introduced to me.
It started as just a fun thing to do here and there, until one day I received the email. Yep, I actually won one of the giveaways. I couldn't believe this... I had never won anything before... well, at least not in a really really long time. This encouraged me to enter more giveaways, and the BAM! another email that I won again! That was twice I actually was chosen in these giveaways. Now most people would have then gone and tried their luck at the lotto, but I knew better than to start expecting too much. So, I just started entering more and more of these things. I even made an Excel list so I could keep up with them and be sure to go back daily to earn the additional entries. Needless to say, this began to take up a lot of my time. I also haven't won anything else.
I finally have reached the place where I can admit I have a problem and that's the first step, right? I still enter some of the giveaways, but I no longer obsess over it. If I come across something I wouldn't mind having I will complete the entries and then move on from there. It would be nice to get that email saying "Congratulations, you have won!" but not at the expense of me sitting in front of a computer all day filling out rafflecopter forms.
Have you ever found yourself with a silly "addiction" that was distracting you from life... and no Pintrest doesn't count.
