Holy Cow

You know, blogging every day myself would actually be easier than reading all the blogs in NaBloPoMo but of course, I was too late to get in on it. So now.. I have to try and read.. wait for it.. drumroll.. 2037 blogs. That equals 101.85 each day.

I managed 22 yesterday. I’ve done 25 today. Why is it taking so long? Because I like to read what these people have to say. And these people are blogging every day! And some of them have been blogging for a long time. So the ones that really interest me, I’ve bookmarked them for future reading purposes.

Reading blogs is something I do a fair bit of. It’s easy when you’re a regular reader – and when you don’t have a job to go to ;) I use firefox and bunch them into little groups in their own folders. I tend to like to try and stick to 8 per folder, and then I just open them in tabs and read them all. I also like to comment a fair bit, usually because what that person has to say speaks to me.

But I kinda set myself this challenge of commenting on *all* the NaBloPoMo blogs I visit, and I don’t just want to leave a copy and paste comment, what would be the point of that? I am copying and pasting the NaBloPoMo thing though, it’s really annoying to type that all the time. :)

But I have about 10,000 unread emails, and lads to hook up with baiting, and a lot of stuff to do, so I don’t know if I’m going to make much inroads into these blogs. But that’s ok – I will just try and get through 20 a day, and keep going till I’m done. Good plan!

But then, some of them are really interesting, and I am bookmarking them to read them later, too. So by the end of this, I might have a bookmark list longer than your average roll of toilet paper. This might mean I have to cut down on the regular blogs I read, and visit them less often. However that’s probably ok too. Many of them don’t blog every day, so I’m not missing stuff by going every few days really.

I don’t have the energy to make a list of the ones I bookmarked right now, but I got through all the number blogs today, and I did Z, X and Q yesterday. In case you’re wondering.

  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog! Amazingly enough, yours is one I haven’t yet hit with the Randomizer. I should probably be counting…I’d guess I’m up to 100-something.

  2. Wow–I think it’s more difficult to read all those blogs than it is to post every day. I’ve been managing with relative ease to post every day, but the idea of even making a dent in the list of all those NaBloPoMo participants is enough to make me pull my hair out. There should be prizes for the people who read all the blogs as well as for those who write them :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.

  3. Thnks for stopping at my place and saying hello. I have to admit, I had zero knowledge of scambaiting. I read the entire Church of the Sacred Butterfly story. Well done.

    Best of luck,

  4. I started at the beginning and have only got half-way through C. Decided to do most of my reading on Mum’s computer as she’s got broadband!

  5. I don’t know if I could keep up with blogging every day. Sometines I look back and see that I’ve done it without trying. Reading blogs is the tough part. I should be working now (midnight~,:^[ )

    I came over here from my pal Kizz’s place. Kizz, with the cat that thinks its fur is a sweater.

  6. I don’t see how I’m going to get through all the NaBloPoMo blogs. It isn’t possible! I admire your efforts though and appreciate you stopping by my blog. I’m finding several blogs that I want to read more. NaBloPoMo may end up being a great way to meet some new online friends.

  7. Over 2000?! Gaah! I had no idea there were so many. Makes this “thanks” for your visit and comment even more significant, considering the numbers.

    Seriously – thanks.

  8. Thanks from me too for the visit, but more so from the comment! As you may or may not have noticed, I rarely get them, so when I do get comments I usually treasure them like little babies once I get up off the floor from passing out in shock!
    Nice look on your blog, and lots of great tips on stuff….When I was on blogspot I HAD the longest sidebar…..You GO girl……the woman who designed my current blog made me get rid of most of it telling me it looked like crap! LOL Yours looks fabulous and is so fun to read!
    Stiff goal, all those blogs…I envy you though…..I am addicted to reading them but my kids are weird and want me to feed them and stuff, so I can’t always get around to it!
    Thanks again and hope you come back.

  9. Ive been doing my best to visit them all and having the same problem as you!! I get stuck on one and feel like Im neglecting the rest!

    I confess though Im not commenting on all the ones I read though, only the ones I either laughed at or they spoke to me. And then there are the ones that sound like people Id probably be friends with…

    So you fall into that list and Ill be coming back!
