Cough cough sputter cough.
So it’s been like 11 days since my last post and it feels WEIRD. What makes it even more weird is that it feels weird – like, before, it would be totally normal to have 11 days between posts. But the in last 6 months I’ve been blogging like a fiend and loving it, so now it’s strange to have such a long span of silence. Here is a note on reasons for said silence:
In short, I moved. Moving is hard. Like, physically. Emotionally this move was not too hard, but it takes time to pack up an entire apartment and then try to unpack it all into one bedroom back at your parents’ house…
I also started my new job literally the day after I moved. What a great decision that was. I’m not tired and stressed at all. Everything is wonderful.
In all honesty, my job/living/grad school situation couldn’t be more ideal at the moment, so I should absolutely not be complaining. I just need to learn to manage blogging among a new library job and new library grad program. Which brings me to my question:
How many bloggers do you follow and how much time do you spend reading/commenting on posts?
Because here is my problem: I follow a lot of bloggers. Like, 112. But not all of them are active, so lets call it around 80. I was off WordPress for 4 days and it took me HOURS to read all the posts I wanted to catch up on. And I don’t even read all of the posts. Heck, I probably read less than half of what is published on my feed. But it’s rather overwhelming and I don’t want to unfollow people. In fact, it’s nice to discover new bloggers! And I don’t want to be the person who skims posts really quickly; I want to read thoroughly so as to be an engaged follower. So how the heck do I manage?? How do you manage, dear reader?
I greatly appreciate your attention to this ragtag post, and I hope to find some sort of stride with everything in the coming months, but warn you that my presence on here or on your own posts with reading and commenting might be sparse while I adjust to a totally different lifestyle than what I had the past 2 years.
Also, this morning I got my 200th follower, so that’s pretty cool! Thanks, all!
