Top 13 Clues that You’re Addicted to the Internet:
1- Your husband (or wife) has to send you an email message when he (she) wants to say something to you.
You also start to think that emailing information substitutes actually having to say things in person.
2- You tell your family members that you would be able to talk to them a lot more if they would just get on Skype (that way you could talk to them while typing, LOL :-D).
3- You honestly want to make a few video tutorials about Skype when your family members look at you with a blank stare on their face and ask you: “What in the world is Skype?!?”
4- You dread going to the mall because your laptop decided to take a vacation and stop working .
5- You go to Wordtracker and start to type in weird keywords after reading Nicole Dean’s niches that she never thought of post.
6- Your first idea of doomsday is turning on the computer and finding the blue screen of death.
7- Your second idea of doomsday is waking up and discovering that your website has just been hacked.
8- Your idea of fun family time is showing the kids your latest delicious bookmarks.
9- You laugh for days or even months after reading Lynn Terry’s awesome satire against website content thieves. You wish there was some kind of award for such clever and hilarious posts like that.
10- If for some weird reason you actually have to spend days without a computer, you start to experience withdrawal symptoms which may include (but aren’t restricted to):
- just sitting and looking at a wall and wondering what you’re supposed to do next.
11- Your mom has the idea of going to a farm for 3 days and tells you that you can’t take the computer with you.
You then embark on a two hour explanation of why 3 days without a computer is your idea of torture.
12- You think this work at home multitasking desk is actually a great idea 😀
13- You have at least 10 of these 15 signs that tells you’re a web geek.
And in case you’re wondering how I came up with this list, let’s just say personal experience is great inspiration for writing 😉
