Does blogging make you fat?

Before blogging I used to be an active person but now I can't seem to get up off my butt. I don't think typing burns to many calories.

  • LOL Well, I wasn't super active before, but now that I have my blog and YouTube channel, I swear I think I've LOST weight lol. Have you ever seen that animated stick figure thing typing like crazy until there's blood everywhere from wearing down its hands and then it smashes its head into the computer?
