Well, randomly one day I actually scrolled all the way down the page on my Dashboard and saw it...the little list of all the blogs I follow and a link to 'View in Google Reader.' So I decided to check it out and boy am I ever glad I did. How cool is it to have all the blogs I follow listed so neatly and in an organized fashion that lets me read them so easily?!
Ok, yes...I'm an idiot and up to this point I had been clicking on each person's individual blog link from my own blog site where it shows the blogs I am following. So make fun of me if you will but at least I'm honest about my stupidity. :)
Anyway, now that I've found it I am able to catch up on my blog reading so much easier...it is a little frustrating that I need to actually open a separate link to comment on the blogs I choose to but that's nothing compared to how much more organized this is.
So what's the problem you ask? Well, this is the problem:
Now that I'm following something like 247 blogs and since it's been the holidays and I've been sick and busy and all, I have fallen way behind on reading all the blogs I love! And to top it off, Google Reader reminds me daily just how far behind I've fallen! How the heck am I supposed to catch up on 785 new items? UGH!!! I feel so much pressure.
So that said, my new year's resolution is: to clear out all the new items in my Google Reader and start fresh on January 1st. I know, I know...it's really a bummer because I know there are posts that I will regret having missed or skipped over but I just seriously can't take the stress anymore.
So if you see me commenting on your blog and I sound all air-heady (is that a word?) and out of the loop or have no idea what you're talking about when you're recapping some fight you had with your future mother-in-law or thanking everyone for their feedback on what color bridesmaid dresses you should have chosen, please forgive me for my ignorance. I will try to search through your previous posts to catch up where I feel the need to be in the know. :)
I'm not big on new year's resolutions but that's a good one for me based on where I'm at with my schedule and planning right now. What about you all? Got any new year's resolutions set yet?
