other ‘blogs

I do try to get out and about in blog world as often as possible. At the very least I try to read all that are listed on the side there at least once a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I use the side list as my blog bookmarks.

Now, my question is for those of you that have hundreds of links in your sidebar. I know much of that is link love, but how many of those are you really reading? And, if you are reading all of them, how are earth do you have the time? RSS feeds probably help out quite a bit there, but still.

Lets say that you have 100 blogs listed. Lets also say that you check every one of them daily via RSS. And you are a fast reader, so you can get up-to-date on each one in about a minute. By my super duper calculations, that is 100 minutes everyday that you are using to read blogs. I don’t have an extra 100 minutes in my day to do anything, so I applaud you for this monsterous task!

But what happens if you miss a day? or go on vacation for a week without :gasp: an internet connection :/gasp:? Do you come back and spend a full day getting caught up?

Plus you still post and keep your blog current, +/- 3 days. Again I must applaud you. My head constantly fills with things that are post-worthy, but either the thoughts are forced out by something else that is more important, or I just don’t have the time to post.

Either way, you are a superior blogger! Here’s to you, super blogger person, reader of the blogs and poster of the wacky links. You are the reason Bud Light is still around and it’s only a matter of time until you get mentioned in one of the radio commericals!
