I don't even know where to begin.
Today Blogger has gone from the old to new version, and I'm missing some of my feed in My Reading List (All Blogs). Oh, God. The whole thing's just a mess and I've got to somehow sort this mess out. Then, I made the mistake of trying to view in Google Reader ... which had (urk!) over 1000 unread items......
I cannot keep up.
What's even weirder is that some blogs I follow (in GFC) only showed content from several months ago, in my Reading List. Even though, when I clicked ON the blog(s), far newer content was there. So why the missing content?
Granted, some blogs I could only follow, or opted to, in Google Reader as opposed to GFC. I get all that, but I'm really not sure how to bring it all into one easy-to-manage list. I guess I could import over to Google Reader, but I really prefer reading from my blog page.
With all the blog hops, I know I've added far more blogs than I can reasonably be expected to follow. Try as I might. But it isn't any fun when you're trying to peruse hundreds of blogs/feeds on a daily basis, so as not to miss anything/anybody.
And - like so many others reporting the same issue - I can't get the stupid *Manage Your Blogs* thingie to work. Maybe it's just me, but I've got to trim things down. Because this isn't fun anymore, it's more like work.
Work I'm not getting paid to do.
Which, is one of my biggest gripes with this tremendous focus on the ever-increasing social network. I can't even keep up with FB, or Pinterest. I know it works for some people, and they certainly work hard at it - but if the largest portion of my *free* time is spent playing catch up - what's the point?
I'm just a little gal trying to have fun and enjoy my blog book buddy friendships.
So, I plan to go over my list of follows, and trim things down to those blogs I especially enjoy. No doubt, anybody reading this is one of those friends I cherish and will most certainly (try) to keep up with. Because YOU GUYS are what matters the most. To me!
Plus, a close friend has asked my help in a fairly large task. I'll be placed in admin. and sorting through thousands of pictures, tagging and writing content and so forth. I don't know how fast I'll power through this job, but speed isn't the issue - quality & accurate content is. Therefore, I'll have even less time, for a while, to read and blog on the Internet.
Anyway, if you don't hear much from me for a wee while, don't think the slugs or wasps have eaten me. I'm not that easy to digest. And, God willing, I can find the time for some Halloween fun, because there's a zombie project I'm really dying (heh heh) to start work on. I'll just have to play it by ear.
In the meantime, I really love you guys ... and wish I knew what the hell I was doing with Blogger.
