"Before Blogging Syndrome. Have you got it?"

Hello,

Hope you are having a good day. A lot of people seem to have the same thing I have recently diagnosed myself with. Before Blogging Syndrome. You know how before you began a blog the world was different. You weren't enticed by every single blog overflowing with beautiful projects, cakes, gardens and books etc.


 There seemed to be time to finish one project at a time.


You didn't have a file of patterns downloaded from the Internet. This is where the term "One day" really takes precedence.

The good thing about having this Syndrome is that it is reversible. I prefer to call it After Blogging Begins Syndrome.


You get to know that I love Roses.


That my Sweet Peas are flowering.

See that is two good things already. Having  After Blogging Begins Syndrome means that I have learnt some amazing things like:

Frixion Pens
Different sizes of linen for cross stitch.
All about Cross Stitch Calculators
Go-Cutters
On-line Shopping
Swaps
Receiving/Sending mail from all over the World.
Making Soap
Giving out garden hints and tips.
 Learning about places and people of all races and religion.
Meeting some lovely bloggers.


So this week I continue to hand quilt Raggedy Anne and Andy, while those other projects wait in the sewing room.

Have you got After Blogging Begins Syndrome?

Happy After Blogging Begins Syndrome.

lol!!! Hi Bev,
I seem to have I-want-blogging syndrome. I want to blog, read everyone's blog, email with bloggers and do all the projects that entice me!!! Can't stop myself!!! Have experienced a lot of those things you've listed, especially meeting those nice bloggers out there.
Have the best day.
Cheers, Anita.

I think it is one of the syndromes everyone should experience. My world has beoome so big and variable in just a very small space. Who would ever have thought that 5 years ago?

Karen said...

There's no turning back now!

Michelle Ridgway said...

Love your post Bev and yes i have the aforementioned afflictions and I don't want saving.....I love it!!! How else would I get to visit your gorgeous garden and see all your lovely stitching and drool over your baking.....no I don't want saving!

Lyn said...

I think that is a great way to explain it...there is a lot of inspiration and temptation out there that I wouldn't want to miss out on now..how life has changed over the last couple of years since I discovered blogging..

Hi Bev, great post - I've learnt alot and met so many wonderful bloggers through blogging and I'm loving it!
Have a lovely evening! =)

Sue said...

Yes, I think I have that now :) I love to blog and read blogs, but before blogging, I was definitely able to finish more things. In fact, I would never have started another project without finishing the one I was working on. I really want to get back to that because having so many projects in the fire makes my head spin, and I end up getting nothing done :/

lesli said...

Oh goodness....I've definitely got the syndrome! My stash is overflowing with beautiful ideas from everyone's blogs...there is just not enough time in the day for me to do everything!

Terriaw said...

Great post! I do love all the great ideas and new friends I've met through reading blogs and writing my own. Pretty cool to think we've been bloggy friends for so many years now, especially since we live on the opposite sides of this planet! Great to know you, Bev!

Maria said...

Oh Yes I have the syndrome too...

Lucky you having such gorgeous sweet peas. I can smell them here.
I planted packets this year to no avail and then even put seedlings in a pot. got about three flowers . :(

Jess said...

I think... I got the ABBS, but as you said, it is wonderful how expanded my world through this syndrome. Truly amazing! (now I can even write some words in English) :D
Thanks for this post, and thans for the tips about eucalyptus I got some leaves and tried, love the color I get.

Hi Bev, great post. Have found so much through the blogging world & the internet in general. But no i seem to have gone back the other way. Lack of interest in blogging & the internet. :) Hugs,

Aftre blogging syndrome sure is a good illness to have...........

Julie said...

Hi Bev - yes I can definately relate to this syndrome ! ! A great post - you have hit the nail right on the head with your prognosis!!! I almost forget what my life was like before I discovered blogs.
I am loving your pics of your roses & sweetpeas by the way. Happy blogging, Julie :-)

Hi Bev, wow this is very thought-provoking for a Friday...
I have just been thinking recently about this sort of thing. Whilst I had been purchasing craft things online occasionally, it was not really until after I started blogging that things really started to expand for me.
I started blogging at a time when I was feeling somewhat lonely in my interests, because my close friends don't share that with me, indeed they never ask about what I'm making & show no interest if I talk about it. Blogging has been such a boost in many ways for me. I've tried new things, I've learnt SO MUCH, I've made wonderful new friends, & best of all my confidence in my abilities & interests has returned.
And I learned that you love Roses!!

melanie said...

I hope you are having a lovely day :)

I can't imagine life without the internet now, what would I do if I couldn't 'google' something that I needed to know! Loved catching up on your posts, your string bag is wonderful, I had never thought of making one, well done.

Bev, you made an accurate diagnosis! I never thought I'd have friends from all over the world, and here you and I keep in touch on a regular basis, comparing gardens and weather and admiring each other's projects. It's so amazing! Sometimes I get frustrated with technology, but right now I have to be very thankful for it....
