Welcome to my feedreader, bloggers.

There are 37 of you. In my internet travels I found my way to your blog, often because I read a blogger who linked to you. I liked your blog a lot. While there, I probably read back about 40+ posts or so. Then I added you to my feedreader..

Most of you will know what a feedreader is, but in case you do not, click here for info. The quick run down – it is an awesome program which collects new articles that bloggers post. So when you post something new, I get a copy, and if I have the time and something to say, I will click through and comment. If you want to get a feed reader, I highly recommend Inoreader, which I have been using a lot lately.

At the end of 6 months or so, if I am still loving your blog as much as I did when I added you to my feed reader, I will add you to my permanent blogroll. YAY!

Why did I unsubscribe from 20 of the 45 blogs? Some of the reasons are as follows listed in no particular order – taken from my blog posts 14 Reasons and 10 New Reasons I unsubscribed from blogs.

Where Are You? I’m Not Feeling It. I’m Waiting. They Told Me They Were Quitting. Blogs With A Partial Feed. They Became Brainwashed.

A Note About Next Month.

In November last year I participated in NaBloPoMo as well as Nano Poblano and I did a commenting challenge. By the end of November I had added 133 new blogs to the feed reader. I’m going to be pretty ruthless in extracting the gems out of this list and creating folders with a more manageable number of blogs and I have to be totally honest with you – I am really looking forward to doing this, because some of these bloggers have turned out to be a bit annoying.. :(

  1. I have a stat counter on my blog, as many people do and while I don’t pay much attention to it, does it register when someone reads your blog in a reader? I tend to only open someone’s blog properly if I am going to comment or take a closer look at photos.

  2. Oh cool – lots of blogs that I haven’t even heard of! I can hardly keep up with the ones I’ve got but it’s too tempting not to check out some new ones and fall down all the new rabbit holes! I went to a blogging event a few months ago and they said that there’s about 75000 wordpress blogs in the world. Sheeesh. It could totally be one’s life’s work trying to get through them all!

    • This is one reason I publish the new feeds I find monthly – because I know how hard it can be to find good blogs out there on the web. :) There’s a lot of noise hiding the awesomes.

      I do find there is a huge drop off rate with blogs – so many quit, vanish, drop their posting back to once a month, or stop posting entirely..

      Sammie next week on Monday I will start a new blog series here on the blog which was actually inspired by a post you wrote, FYI. :) I do give you full credit and link back to the post which inspired it.

    • The feed reader is the thing that makes reading so many blogs possible. It saves me bucketloads of time loading individual blogs and just gives me the most recent post. I presently have 489 feeds in the reader, and that is way down from the 700 or so I usually have. Nearly 100 of those feeds never post at all anymore, I’m just keeping them in my reader in case the blogger decides to return one day. :)

      Feed reading combined with the fact I am a super fast reader, I actually need a fair bit of content to read daily. :)

  3. Thank you for Including me on your blog roll
    Your blog roll certainly has a great selection to choose from.
    I used to read so many blogs – but life gets in the way and I don’t read as many now. I tend to leave comments on Facebook or on the blog – only if I have something to say.
