Blog Crack


I have a new addiction.

It used to be that I would compulsively check all your blogs throughout the day, waiting for a new post. (Why yes I do have a job, why do you ask?)

I now subscribe to them via BlogLines and compulsively check THAT all day to see if you've posted yet.

It saves me time - lots of it. I have grown very attached to it in the last week.

So can you imagine my horror to find this smug looking asshole on my screen today??


I feel shut-out. Left behind. Abandoned. Like all my friends are off partying and left me and my broken blog reader behind. Needless to say, it's been a very long afternoon.

I know, I know..."Just go to your links like you did before, Stupid!"

I am - it's just not the same. I hope it's back up tomorrow so I can get some freakin' work done!

OR! The POS can come back immediately after I decide to post about it just to make me look stupid. Whatever it takes, BL!

Aw, Amy. We're not partying without you.

And yeah, the readers are the way to go!

Jodi said...

hahhaha, I thought I was the only one who did that. Boy, at least I know I am in good company! :)

Hey! While you're waiting for your Bloglines, go waste time on www.truemomconfessions.com. It's my new addiction, and there are always new confessions....apparently we moms are a guilty lot.

Hahaha. Poor Butrfly! (Shhhhh, everyone! Don't tell her how much fun we've been having WITHOUT HER!!!)

I guess I'm going to have to jump on this blogline bandwagon. I guess it would be easier to compulsively check one thing that several and save me some time. Of course, that means I would have to fill it with something like, oh, I don't know, work. So, yeah, maybe not.

Awwwwww...poor butterfly!

I use Google reader insead. The only negative is that I never get to be the first commenter as there seems to be delays between postings and postings popping up on my reader.

Other than that problem, I've found it to be easier to use than Bloglines. And it's never gone down on me. Of course not that I've said that, it will.

I just realized that what I said sounds a little nasty! oooops!:0

Butrfly4404 said...

I didn't think it was nasty, Kelly!

I'm going to get set up on Google's Monday and see if I like that one more. I see I get a lot of hits from it, so it must be popular!

Amy said...

I freaked out when I saw him all afternoon too! Bastard.

I would use this, but I am compulsive and would miss the obsessive blog-checking.
I kind of like the plumber though.

Check out Netvibes. It is my favorite!

kate said...

Use google reader. it's better. and switch from yahoo email to gmail--ten times better.

Hi,

I have just discovered your blog and must say how good it is. I'll certainly be back to visit.

If you get a chance, please feel free to say hello on mine, I 'd love to hear from you.

I'm not one of the cool kids either. I don't use either of the readers. I think I kinda like obsessively going to each individual blog.
