A Short Post About Reading Blogs and Virtual Hyenas and My First '10s Prediction

A Short Post About Reading Blogs

At first, I was so desperate for a good reading, that when I found Blogger, I used to click on that "Next Blog" button some still have on top. Then I found Blog Explosion, where I met Ricardo, and Sebastien, and Tom, and many others. I also met Jerry from Fat Cat Politics, who was the first one to add me to his blogroll. Spammers still leave comments on his blog, two years after his death.

I found more blogs through other people's links. Some people visited here and for some reason stuck around. I met some people through the other blog, where I collect fathers. And now I've done my second review for Ask and Ye Shall Receive. It will be up next week. I'm having fun with that one.

I'm stretching myself too thin, is what I'm saying. (Was that a cliché? Man, I'm so out of the loop, I don't know what's a cliché anymore! Is "Out of the Loop" a cliché?) After all, it's not like I have time to do any of that. I get a few hours at night when everyone is asleep and I type quietly and with constant fear that What's-His-Name wakes up and starts to cry, which means I can't even read or write properly because I'm not focused, which in turn produces run-on sentences.

It also means I haven't been spending enough time reading other people's blogs. And I'm not saying that as an apology; that would be presumptuous. I wish I were able to spend all day reading my favorite blogs, is what I'm saying.

That's it about that. The snow is coming. Maybe there's a metaphor there, but who cares. And anyway, the '10s are going to be the decade of Realism, and everything before that will be lost in time, like tears in the rain, for example.

What was that you told me last time when you were channeling your grandmother? Stop by when you can? Or something like that. I dunno - there's a balance in there somewhere & if you go over it too far, blogs stop being relaxing & fun. Myself, I just try & aim for relaxing and fun. Except for my work blog. That's work. Or something.

Steve Hayes said...

So how come I never found your blog on Blog Explosion?

SJ said...

At least you write more than me. These days I do more reading then writing on my own.

Shelli said...

I don't know how ya found me, but I'm glad you did. I've learned a lot from you over these months. (Is it even years? I think it is! It has because I've known you since before 1st baby was born. Man, time goes fast.)

Jill, I mean, it's fun, but it's not therapeutic anymore because I don't need it to be therapeutic. Hard times will come back, though. Don't worry.

Steve, I haven't been doing it much. They have a Malaysia Real Estate blog there now. And there's one crazy Christian guy there who has ten blogs. There are still quality blogs there, but I don't have a problem finding good stuff to read anymore.

SJ, not having time to read is my problem, though. And you know, even when I do read, I just can't read fiction anymore. It's strange. Maybe it's a phase.

Shelli, I don't remember... Did you come here first? Maybe we met in the comments of Pointless Drivel? It has been a long time.

Blogging is fun. Blogging is random. Blogging is time-consuming.

People in the Sun said...

Ellie, I know I know. Some people make it seem so easy, though. And no matter how easy going it seems (blogging as an afterthought), it's still turns out better than what I write...

Sebastien said...

Your priorities are out of whack. You need to prioritize... me. ME!

Just kidding, I feel the same way, I wish I could spend more time in the blogosphere, I've met so many wonderful friends. You count as one of them. Barely ;)

Happy new year mon ami!!! I hope this is the year we get to meet in person. I'm hoping I will be well enough to travel and visit my sister in Baltimore. For the moment, I am spending lots of quality time with her as she is spending her vacation here in AZ, woohoo!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

People in the Sun said...

Sebastien, be careful. I smell really bad.

Anonymous, thank you!!! Your mom keeps getting better and better too!!!

Ricardo said...

Seems like yesterday when we crossed paths my friend. It's been quite a trip with this stuff. Right?

People in the Sun said...

Ricardo, isn't it crazy we've known each other for three years?
