I am drowning.
The problem is this.
Each day since April 1, I visit each blogger, read the posts, read the comments, usually leave a comment and move on. At that time I had 20 followers.
(I was swimming pretty good at this point).
Each day I find new blogs to follow. Sometimes I reach back into their history and see what they wrote about prior to the challenge. Gosh, I discover there is alot of good stuff out there.
(I am starting to tread water here.)
New folks find and follow me (Yeah!!). I visit their blog. Wow, how could I have missed this person? I follow them back. I look back to their postings starting on April 1 - maybe further back!
(I am starting to gasp for air, need a life vest.)
Each morning, I log on to my computer. Yikes! 54 unread postings.
(Last night there were 5!!! Don't these guys sleep?)
I dig in. I start reading and responding. I get caught up, mostly. After lunch I check again!! More! Double Yikes!! And I repeat!
(Does anyone know blogging CPR?)
Let's all take a break this week so we can all catch up!!
Okay, so that is a stinko idea, if you want to meet the April challenge. And I will be standing on April 30 with a minimum of 26 postings under my belt. But I have made a discovery. A discovery that none of my blog friends warned me about.
(Where were you guys????)
The REAL challenge of this month isn't writing the daily posts to your own blog ... it is keeping up with the bogs you follow!
So now I am asking ....
- Do you read every one's blog?
- Do you comment all the time?
- If you get behind do you delete or just wait until you have more time ... say a week to catch up?
- How much time do you spend on blogging each day - the whole process: creation, reading, commenting!!
- Do you do something I haven't mentioned to keep from drowning?
Inquiring minds (of new bloggers) ... ok, it is just me, I want to know.
(Throw me a life-line for cry'en out loud!!)
(PS - I love you guys. Don't stop posting! Don't stop following! Don't stop reading! Don't stop commenting!
Don't stop! I'll deal.)
