You Know You're Obsessed With Personal Finance Blogging When...

So I've come to the conclusion that I'm a bit obsessed with blogging, specifically PF blogging and the PF community. I'm so obsessed that I need to share my addiction with you and hope that you are all just as bad as me.

Also, I feel like someone somewhere out there may have done something similar to this before as it's probably not uncommon, so if you did - let me know and I'll link you up in this post!

Oh, btw - I didn't forget about my weekly faves post! It will be up soonish. When I say soonish, I really mean that I haven't finished it yet and I meant to finish it last night but I much preferred working on this post.

Feel free to add more to this list. I'm expecting lots of funny responses and additions :)
