Hey there Saloners.
I'm still tackling my GReader. I actually went nearly four days without turning on my home computer (this is a rarity, trust me) which led to a shockingly large amount (over the thousands people!) of unread posts that left me boggled, stressed, and overall feeling incapable of keeping up.
What I've realized is there are a lot of blogs that I've added to 'monitor' to see if I'm interested in adding them into my "regular reading" folder. Unfortunately, some of these blogs have not been recent additions. I'm looking at blogs added six months ago. I skim, but trying to figure out what caught my attention in the first place is fairly pointless. So it got me thinking about a couple of things.
(1) I want to make sure that I'm following all of those readers who are following me. I'm all about showing the love here people. If you're taking the time out of your schedule to check me out (even if it's merely skimming to see if the post/book holds your interest) then I want to have you on my radar. So, if you think that maybe I've overlooked you, please comment here - I will make it a priority to add your blog into my regular reading if it's not already there.
(2) Is there some sort of web site that catalogues all of the book bloggers out there? Not just in the "hey, I'm a blogger too" so we should be friends sorta website, but more like "hey I read these kind of books" and we should be friends because you do too website. Have I overlooked it? There are just some genres that I'm not going to find fascinating - historical fiction - for example. So, even if you are an incredibly talented book blogger and your writing rocks, I probably won't be too into commenting or reading your blog. However, I know that there have to be noteworthy blogs out there that I should check out.
I guess my goal over the next couple of weeks is to eliminate the book blogs that are not meaningful to me.
This should be fun. Work is already too stressful.
(Oh and finally, my last side-note: I have been terribly with comments. Even with responding to the comments on my blog! Yikes! Please know that I am still here, reading and thinking. It's the responding that's on hiatus.)
So, if you read and are unsure that I read your blog - comment. :))
And if you know of a website that catalogues book blogs based on genres (eclectic included) then PELASE point me in that direction.
Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday. Football, reading, and Wii will be in my future. I'm looking forward to a restful break. Cheers!
