and why am I following them?
I realized a few days ago that I am missing out on posts on blogs that I really like because my dashboard is full of posts from so many blogs. I don't like finding out days later that my friends had a shelf almost kill them, or that there is a boring contest that I really want to win, or that I know someone that lives in Nashville and has been through terrible storms.
So I went to "manage" the blogs I am following. I was following 126!! OMG! 126 people are not following ME. So I started reviewing who I was following. Some are eay, since I see them everyday, SonyaAnn, McVal and Marilyn. But I found a couple that don't even exist anymore. Of course they were not filling up my dashboard.
What was filling it up was the blogs that have a couple thousand followers. They don't know me! I probably started following for good reasons, but now some of those blogs are just coupon links or total contest blogs. Now, I enjoy a good coupon or a good contest as much as the next guy. But I want to be able to find out what by really bloggy friends are up to. So I started weeding some out. I got rid of 15 today. I am hoping that stopping following those with huge numbers of followers will keep my dashboard down to a readable level.
I AM supposed to be working after all. LOL!
