I have a confession, I don't use one of those fancy "feeds" or "bloglines" or whatever. Partly because I don't understand them, partly because, well, I just don't.
Instead, I bookmark everything. My favorites folder is on the brink of bringing down the whole computer. It's bad news, people. Because I don't use a feed, my blog checking is kind of crazy and random. There are the usuals that I check every.single.day. You see them over there on the sidebar? Yup, those.
Other days, I sit down at the computer, pull down my bookmarks and peruse my favorites. Random picking. I'll think, "Hey, Dabbler, haven't been there this week! Oh, Pure Joy! Wonder what those crazy Ex-Pats are up to..." And it goes on like that, sometimes for hours.
Then, when I go through the trouble to pull up someone's blog and find it hasn't been updated since I last visited, I get frustrated. Crazy frustrated. I seem to feel entitled to regular updates on people's lives.
And now, here I am, one of those bloggers that drives me crazy. Unpredictable, undisciplined, unfinished...
What I'm saying is this: Your frustration? I get it.
(and I made granola again, but it wasn't as good this time)
