Blogs, by the numbers.

Sometimes, I don't feel like blogging. Other times, I'm too busy to blog.

Digby, 2010. He knows several tricks :)
Since I have been the latter as of late and I have time now, I thought it would be fun to list all the blogs I read regularly and how many blog posts I've missed since I haven't read any since the second to last week or the last week of July... Yeah. Admittedly, I MAY have read some posts on specific blogs and forgotten and my computer isn't the best for accurate posts (sometimes counts 2 posts on the same day as 1 post) sooo it might not be 100% correct. I didn't list anyone who's blog I follow if they didn't post since then. I don't want to make anyone feel bad because, you know, I've been there myself busy bloggers!!

Guess I've got some reading to do! I was done work at 4 and since it's raining, I find myself with NOTHING TO DO for once in what seems to be a very long time. This calls for some adult beverages, Netflix binging and blog reading. :) (Side note: if I missed your blog, spelled something wrong, or entered a hyperlink wrong, let me know! The adult beverages maaay have already started.)


  1. Apparently I'm slow on writing too! I knew I hadn't written much lately but you just put it in perspective. I've had difficulty keeping up with blogs also.

    This was a unique post, and a great way for us to discover new blogs we hadn't heard of. :) I know I did! I'll have to do this too!

    Enjoy the reading, Netflix and the beverages! ;)

    1. Thanks! I was just going to list the top couple and be like "seriously, you people post every single day" but then I realized how much I enjoyed when other folks posted the blogs they follow because a lot of bloggers don't list them anywhere.

      Reading, Netflix and beverages were all thoroughly enjoyed! I need to do that more often.

  2. That's a ton of catch up! I wasn't writing as often when I was in grad school, but man, make me only semi-employed and I post almost every day now. I'm sure it will slow down soon enough!

    1. Ugh, I know. I was way better at posting when I worked night shifts and thus more time. I love reading your blog so make sure you still write sometimes!!

  3. I love these kinds of posts. I always find blogs I've never seen before.

  4. Ugh I feel your pain - fell behind in my reading for a couple weeks and it was soooo tempting to just hit "mark as read" .... But then again I didn't want to miss anything lol. Tricky balance!
