Comments: To read or not to read.

You don't have to read my blog, I never say anything important anyway. :)

I read the family and a select few others. Sometimes every day or so, that seems to help. Then there are days I go crazy and read everyone that I like. I like those days. Ahh, I am so going to lose my job.

I genrally read the people I know will update daily on a daily basis, everyone else I hit every two or three days and read through everything they've posted since my last visit.

The sites I absolutely do not miss daily are the ones I read for news and stuff (Like Michelle Malkin).

Hey would you mind summarizing or bullet-pointing this post? It was awful long and I didn't really have time to read it...

I read the family daily. That's a given.

Others, are every few days or once a week.

I have a newsreader that I skim to make sure I'm not missing anything major out there like a birthday, birth, or anything like that.

Grau, I tried something like that. What I discovered was I would not read a blog for 2-3 days saving time, but then I would spend 2-3 times as long reading that blog on a different day. It all balanced out.

S. No, now go get back on the phones!

Sissy, I don't even read the entire family everday. I don't have time for that.

NewsReader. Not everyone posts every day. And it also gives you a 'highlight' of the posts as you browse through them. Some I read entirely, a lot I don't. It has cut my time down considerably. I'm not looking through my

Had to run... not looking through every blog on my blogroll...

I've heard RSS feed-readers do save time.

Me, I'm having the same problem. But I find that if I only make the rounds every other day, the trip through my blogroll still takes about the same amount of time.

I certainly don't read all of the ones I want to every day. Like Sissys, I try to read certain Core blogs every day - starting with the Castle Denizens, and then on to the Frizzen Kin and so on.

But I have to skim most of them to save time. Even RSS feeds only help somewhat - since some of my favs don't have it available.

I'm dyin' too Contagion. Since the move and a real 8-5 job I don't even have time to hit all the family. Comment? Yeah, right. It's making me crazy and it's gonna get worse. I'm going to have to do the majority of my blogging at night now as the mornings are about to get complicated.

I don't have an answer but I'll keep checking back in hopes that someone can help us!!!

Just read what you can when you can. It doesn't mean you still don't love us if you don't read everything daily. You don't call, you don't write... but deep down... I know that you probably still wouldn't even if you had the time. :-)

p.s. I'm still a rookie though, so maybe you should feel like a horrible blogfriend if you don't read everything everyday... In fact, yes, I'm sure that's much more reasonable.

RSS reader. Hands down. Not only do some people post rarely, but you can also look at the titles of people' posts and excerpts and decide if somethings are worth reading or not...
