Well I did a bit of cleaning out today.
Its 2 years since I first started my writings here, at that time I was more concerned about my weight and thought this would be a way of keeping track of any exercise I did and a way to see where I was going wrong with my diet.
I spent hours reading other blogs written by people concerned with their health weight so had a huge blogroll I would check each day. That led me to reading other kinds of blogs, crafty ones, recipe ones, full on exercise ones and I was spending so much time on the computer DH said he felt like a Blog Widower!!
I then discovered Bloglines and realised I didn’t have to check each one every day as it would let me know when they had been updated. That saved me hours and maybe ‘the marriage’:))
Life in my house is never the same from week to week and I’m like the child in the class who can’t keep quiet so my blog has become quite dynamic in that it changes as my interest changes and has evolved into a chatty one where (like my header) I now talk about anything and everything.
So back to the decluttering mentioned above.
Bloglines is great but I had so many blogs listed I was finding it hard to read all the updates and I was losing interest in some of the blogs I did read.
Some blogs only have a portion of the post show up and it means opening the whole blog to read the complete post. I get annoyed if this happens and feel the time I had saved is being eaten up by having to do this.
So I had a good long hard look at what I had earmarked as blogs I wanted to keep in touch with. Some of the ones who only had partial feeds have gone and also some I have lost interest in. A lot of these were ones I listed after seeing them linked on other sites and wanted to see more of but decided it was just that – more of the same.
Hopefully this means I will be happier with the ones I do keep in touch with and will have more time to make my presence known by making comments.
