I blame them for distracting me from the things I actually enjoy. Reading books, reading about books, writing, travel, photography, blogging. Hmmm not quite sure about that last one. Do I really enjoy blogging? Do I enjoy wondering what to post on a dull day because I know I ought to? Do I like having it on my to do list along with cleaning the bathroom and booking a dentist's appointment? Probably not, if I'm honest. There's more to this though. What blogging does achieve is reminding me of all those favourite pastimes. It encourages me to do them. More than that it makes me pay attention to what I'm doing. And that's no bad thing.
