Confessions of a Novice Blogger

OK, I'll admit it ... I didn't want to at first, I felt ashamed. But I just can't keep it to myself any longer.

I've been cheating on you, my dear blog readers ... There, I've said it, but I feel dirty. It all seemed so innocent when it began. I was idly surfing through blogs, reading my favorites, meeting some new ones, and then it happened ... I started skimming the ads enticing me to "blog for money". The adrenaline started to pump as I dreamed of making a gazillion dollars overnight or at least finding modest fame as a freelance writer.

Gradually, my flirting became more serious - not only did I just make casual glances on the monetizing sites, I found myself spending time clicking deeper and deeper into each of the topics. One opportunity after another, they all seemed to run together. Once, after at least two hours, I found myself in a stupor, not knowing how I got to the site I was on. There was perspiration on my brow, my heart was racing, but I felt cheap.

Then one day, I found myself answering an ad ... on a freelance writing website ... I don't know what came over me. I couldn't stop myself. I have to get myself in a program or this just might never end.

I feel oddly better now that I've confessed ... but if you don't hear from me in a while, you have every right to be suspicious. I just don't know if I can stop myself.

Maybe it's just a weird form of procrastination.
