And I'm SWAMPED!
How do you keep up with blogs? I mean, really? When I got back yesterday evening, I finally checked my email. We were 100% out of touch while in Belize - I last checked my email or the internet at about 10pm on September 3 and then I didn't log in again until the morning of September 11 when I needed to get my Continental Airlines check-in reservation, and the ship was finally back within internet range. Most of the week, it was not in internet range and the only communication option was satellite phone ($5 per minute) or satellite text email account ($1 per email). Even when I checked my email to get my airline reservation, the only other thing I did while in my account was to check and see if anyone was signed up for my Scuba class I'm teaching tomorrow night.
So, I finally got home Sunday (we overnighted in Houston Saturday night, but I didn't connect to the internet at the hotel and relaxed instead). I checked my email and had about 250 emails (note that most advertisement type things - not spam, but actual ads that I want - go to another folder and skip my inbox). That wasn't a big deal. But I when I checked Google Reader - 1000+ new posts!!!
I really want to keep up with everyone, and I haven't yet gotten into the "Running" subfolder of Google Reader. I have 362 new posts to read as of right now. About 200 of them are from running blogs.
So - question of the day - How do you keep up? I admit, I have trouble keeping up with everyone on a day-to-day basis, but when I skip a day I really have a problem! In this case, I skipped a whole week and I feel so behind!! And, more are coming in! I'm so swamped!
