B is for Blog Angst

So. I follow a lot of people on Twitter. I follow them because they are entertaining and clever and witty and interesting and this is good, right? Wrong. This is bad. All of these entertaining and clever and witty and interesting people have things to say, so they blog. Blogging is good, I’m two days in and I have to admit I quite like it, but if I sat down and read all the blogs I wanted to read I’d never leave the house and I have children and a job and proper, grown up responsibilities, so my heart sinks a little bit whenever I get an email, or see a tweet telling me that someone has blogged.

Which one do I read first? Which one do I skim read? Which one do I pretend to read? Which one do I like without even looking at the title? (Never, ever done that, honest. Well, maybe once.Twice. Three times at the most). It’s like you’re making me choose which one of my children I love the most. It’s like the Sophie’s Choice of the blog world. I just hope that you never all get together and compare notes on which ones I commented on.

I’d just like to say though that you, the person who is reading this right now, are my very favouritest blogger and I like you the most.

  1. It’s easier to truly connect with people through blogging than with Twitter. I do both, but I don;t really pay much attention to Twitter. Blogging requires you truly engage with the reader.

  2. Too funny! I can relate to your blog angst. I do a lot of “sneak reading” here at work (no worries, ‘cuz my hubby is my boss) but I still feel like I am never caught up on all my reading! Happy A to Z to you. I’ll be back. πŸ™‚ ~Tui

  3. That’s a coincidence,cos you’re my favourite too….hang on ’til I go back and read your blog….ha.

    Hello, Tracy–welcome to the blogs! When I started blogging, I would primarily keep up with bloggers who commented on my site (*ahem*), and through them got to know others. After a while, you have to be discerning. Perhaps have a shortlist of blogs you read every day, then those you catch up with on the weekend, and maybe a list of those you skim through every few weeks and read the articles that catch your eye. No blogger wants to be on that last list, but if everyone read every blog they subscribe to every day, the economy would collapse because no-one would be doing anything but reading blogs. And eventually all the bloggers would stop blogging because they’re reading blogs… and the readers would riot because the bloggers aren’t blogging, society would disintegrate, and the Hunger Games would become reality! Okay, maybe I exaggerate. But you get my point. πŸ˜€

    I hope you have fun with the A-to-Z Challenge! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Colin. So basically, what you’re saying is that if I don’t read your blog it will be the end of the world as we know it? I get it now πŸ™‚
      But yes, I need a system, that is my aim for this week. that and to think of a subject for G…

  5. I like your humor. I tend to write dark but am trying to branch out. So, again, I like your humor. πŸ™‚ And, at this very moment in time, I am glad to be your very favorite.

  6. I get you. Then you feel guilty when you realize that you’ve not visited a blog you really like because you’d forgotten with so many new ones out there. A life in a day is not long enough to do all we need! I guess even if it were, my brain couldn’t handle it all.

    I don’t have time to read blogs. Am far too busy drinking coffee, tweeting #foodporn and procrastinating on Facebook. In fact I don’t even have time to finish this comm……………
