Dearest Bloglines

Dearest Bloglines:

You’ve always provided me with hours (too many hours!) of reading enjoyment and made me a few friends, none of which I will probably ever meet.  I’ve always visited you happily and earnestly.  But November.  I just can’t stand the sight of you.   And the reason is NaBloPoMo.

What am I to do when my favorite writers ALL write at least a post daily?  Do I ignore my life (been there, done that, got depressed) or do I ignore my blog friends lives (but I can’t stand to miss something)?

So I read.  But it leaves no room for writing.  So November has precious little posts here at americanmum.  Maybe the internets will thank me.

    If I’m on your Bloglines, sorry. I’m only doing NaBloPoMo because last year I ran out of steam in the last week. I hate being a quitter.

    Someone should start a NaBloReadMo, where all bloggers stop writing and just start reading all the blogs we don’t have time to read right now.

    One thing that I never liked about Bloglines is that they limit you to 200 feeds per site (or at least they used to) and that once you clicked on site, they were all marked read even if you hadn’t read them all. I switched to Google Reader and never looked back…I’m currently backlogged by almost 1000 posts on various blogs and I just read a few posts at a time…they don’t get marked read until you scroll past them and there’s no limit to the backlog. 🙂

    The solution is simple – only read my blog.

    I’m glad to have been of service.

    Hahaha Dan. Good advice! I am trying to do NaBloPoMo & have a backlog of posts that need editing before I can post them!
