Google reader

I have been a very bad member of the blogging community, both by not posting and by not reading and commenting on other peoples posts.

Today I managed to spend some time catching up. My Google reader listed well over 400 posts for me to catch up on. It now sits at 132. I've no time left today but I will endeavour to get it back under control by the end of tomorrow.

Congrats to everyone who has made sales, or got an agent, started a novel for the first time, or any of the other wonderful things you've all been up to. I may not have commented everywhere but know that you are all in my thoughts.

Well done


  1. It's impossible to keep up on everything! Sadly, it just is. We all can only do what we can.

  2. this year has gotten away from me as well. Only so much time in day and all that jazz.

  3. 2010 has not been the best for me in the time-managing department either. Ah well, today's a new day.

  4. I've been bad about reading/commenting on people's blogs too. I know you hate Twitter so I hesitate to mention this, but I think my use of Twitter has had a negative impact on my blog reading/posting time. At least, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

  5. I'm caught up! I apologise if I haven't commented on everyone's posts, I'd still be reading if I commented on everything I perused.

    This year has gone and I've achieved absolutely nothing but that's okay, I will get something done eventually - even if it doesn't happen till next year or the one after that. (Hopefully the world doesn't come to an end in 2012 because that will leave me bugger all time at all!)

    KC - I love it when a blogger friend demonstrates they remember something about me even though I haven't mentioned it in ages. It also makes me very jealous as I can't remember what I did yesterday let alone what other people said they prefer months ago. You are correct though, additional forms of social networking detract from the time spent on individual forms of social networking, i.e. Blogging alone takes 100% of your time but adding Twits reducing each to 50%. Add more = reducing time on all of them overall.

    So I wish I used multiple forms of social networking as this would give me a great excuse for my lapse in blogging - but I don't, so I can't. I'm just slack :c(

  6. 2010 has seen many of us go "astray". I blame it on the Mayan calendar.

  7. Man, sometimes a break is just needed. We alllll do it.

  8. YAY - you're back!

    (and I feel for ya, on catching up...) ;)
