Curiously Trying to Keep Up

I haven't been a member of the blogging community very long. But one thing I've learned so far is there are a heck of a lot of blogs out there.

Some of the blogs I follow are other writers and some are not. So far, most of the people who have commented on my blog have been other writers. There's nothing wrong with this. But I just want to send out a great big everyone is welcome to comment here invitation. I'm not looking for cleaver comments that blow my socks off or my mind. There's nothing better than having someone comment, even if it is just to say 'Hi, I read your blog'.

But getting back to the following bit. I have a very difficult time keeping up with all the other blogs I follow and what I really want to know is how do you keep up with the blogs you follow plus all the other stuff that's going on in your life, your blog--if you have one, your job--if you're lucky enough to have one, and your family? Is there a secret? If so, please share your secret with me.


  1. I use Google Reader and subscribe to my blogs.

    Currently I have 629 blogs on the reader. (just checked)

    While I don't read each blog, I will scan them briefly to see if they say anything of interest.

    To make it easier to categorize, I divide the blogs by group.

    There are writer blogs, reviewer blogs, tech blogs, coupon/sales blogs, finance blogs, history blogs. All my interests are in one easy to scan web site.

    My system is pretty efficient so I can stay abreast of the latest info without visiting each site.

  2. 629 blogs? Whoa, that's a lotta reading. It's good to hear you don't read each one. Then you wouldn't have time for anything else. This is good information on categorizing. I will definitely look into Google Reader. Thanks for sharing, Maria and thanks for the friend request on FB.


I love hearing from you and always look forward to your comments!
