So it looks like Google is retiring Google Reader.
I think this upsets a lot of bloggers because of the Followers widget many have on their blogs.
Some bloggers have A LOT of followers and it shows up on their blog. And personally if I see a blog that has a lot of followers, I think "Wow, they must post some good stuff."
Or at least that is what I used to think.
I've come to realize that is not really the case.
I haven't used Google Reader since my second kiddo was born because I don't really have the time to read up on others and I have lost interest.
For a while I was following a lot of folks and I enjoyed reading most of who I was following.
Then I got bored... and annoyed. Too many link-ups, sponsor posts and complaints about their big beautiful homes turned me off.
And some folks just changed their writing style to a more poetic, flowery style, and there is nothing wrong with that. I just don't like reading it.
I don't get symbolism and I cant follow too many adjectives in row. It makes me feel dejected, lugubrious, and as though I am adrift at sea without a paddle. So I just give up and move on to something else, like PINTEREST! (so pretty)
If I REALLY want to keep up with a particular blogger I follow them on Facebook and Twitter. If their little blurb catches my eye THEN I go to their site.
It works for them and me because I get to pick and choose what I read and they get traffic to their site.
Its a Win-Win!
So if you still want to keep up on my bloggy happi-haps, I suggest subscribing via email or following me on Twitter.
I like to keep my Facebook personalish so Im not really sharing that. (I add the ish because how well do I really know all 304 of you.)
