This weekend, I “un-followed” the 400+ blogs in my Blogger Dashboard and cleared out my Google Reader.
I am finished reading blogs.
That was a bad joke. Actually, I am finished reading blogs via Blogger Dashboard. I’m moving up in the blogging world! I’ve long known about Google Reader, but just never could change my habit from the way I started out reading blogs. So, to solve my silly problem, I am no longer going to “follow” blogs with Google Friend Connect. One by one (what a pain!), I un-followed all the blogs so I have no choice but to stop using the Blogger Dashboard. I don’t even use my Blogger Blog anymore, anyway!
Next I cleared out the mess I had in my Google Reader and started over. I don’t read nearly as many blogs as I did before, so I remembered the ones I usually read. Right now I have less than 30 blogs in my Reader. A big difference from the 400+ I was following. Soo many of those blogs I just “followed” so I could enter a giveaway. How horrible is that? I haven’t had the patience to do that lately, hence the decrease in blog giveaway winnings.
So, if I should be reading your blog because you read mine or because yours is totally awesome, tell me! I’ll add it to my new and improved Reader. :o)
P.S. -I recommend you check out this awesome photography blog, which I just recently started reading. Also, give The Pioneer Woman a second chance if you’re like me. I did, and decided I like her. Her blog overwhelmed me at first.
