Blogs: The New Serial Killers?

So will blogging really kill us? C’mon! Let’s grant reality TV that priviledge. Of late, I have been noticing a lot of feeds on how compulsive blogging can impact health issues. But the fact is that internet related psychological disorders and complexes will become more and more conspicuous as internet gains further stronghold. According to Dr. Pinhas Dannon of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine, 10 percent of Internet surfers are afflicted with “Internet addiction disorder,” which can lead to anxiety and severe depression. So, I personally feel blogging is not a disease. It may be a micro manifestation of a larger lifestyle disorder. And if you don’t believe me, just take a quick look at how irregularly I blog, despite being a self proclaimed pundit of the cause!!

    I think at some point, especially when one has just started blogging, one gets the bug and blogs compulsively but with time, the blogging rate declines and I have seen this happen to a lot of bloggers. However, that is not to say that IAD is not real. Some people I know r addicted to the internet, infact most of us are. Maybe not to blogging, but we are addicted to the internet and to our mobiles. If you dont agree, see how long you can go without checking ur mails or favorite sites.
