Note to self: Visit blogs often
I’m glad that I added a blog list to this blog, because it makes visiting blogs easier.
Google Reader is great, and during the week, when I come home from work with a blown brain, a reader is an easy way for me to get caught up on posts before I pass out for seven or eight hours.
But reading posts strictly via a reader is an antiseptic way to read blogs.
In my opinion, anyway.
I don’t give myself a chance to see how it’s all being put together, to enjoy the visual treats of my favorite blogs.
I like the way bloggers put their blogs together, showing readers their interests and glimpses of their lives, the problems, the joys, and the frustrations.
Reading a blog is an escape into voyeurism, when you think about it, except that bloggers control the information they write about themselves.
When I visit blogs, I take time to notice any theme or widget changes, who has stopped by to visit besides me, and find links to other blogs.
