After ten minutes, I'm already down to posts I hit yesterday, published 12 hours ago. What? Ten minutes of blogging is all I get?
I remember a couple years ago when it would take all morning to get through the new stuff. There was no way I could get to every appealing post of every interesting blogger I followed.
But now it seems like people are posting less frequently (I know I am), with more blogfests (not interested if I'm not involved), and perhaps we get too casual, (remember the intention is to attract readers, right?) maybe a bit sloppy about subject matter? "I just picked my nose and guess what happened......"
Which is why I'm enjoying my journey through the A to Z Challenge sign up list. I'm up to #300 and I've found a few really awesome new blogs to follow. I don't comment on each one, or follow either.
What I look for is: a design that appeals (don't like too fussy or too hard to read or automatic music playing), and intelligent or entertaining or clever posts that 1. make me think 2. engage me somehow 3. have a voice I like and 4. subject matter I can relate to.
I'm not addicted to blogging, (I used to be but got over it), it's just that sometimes blog-hopping is what I do. And I need blogs to hop to! So if bloggers are disappearing or posting less often, one needs to find new ones to take their places, right?
The A to Z Challenge List has 898 blogs signed up, plenty for any discriminating blog
