Anyone else experiencing this?
I feel like it is impossible to stay up on anyone's blogs, and it is especially frustrating now that I've just joined this site and want to start reading new ones, but feel guilty doing that when I've fallen behind on my regulars. Ahhh!
(or this just could be a sign that I am so utterly neurotic that have the need to be overcontrolled in every area of my life... blogging included ;) )
Yes! I hear you totally. There is mega overload in my reader... but that just means that if something doesn't catch my right away, I don't read it. And I mean, for a lot of people, they're just trying to get something out that day... so a lot of the posts aren't great anyway. And do people really expect their readers to read bad posts? Hopefully not. I'm anti-NaBloPoMo
Oh man. I agree COMPLETELY. It's kicking my ass. I feel bad too because I'm usually really good about leaving comments on all of the blogs I read, but I've been really behind lately because of the sheer volume of posts people are spitting out. I can't keep up.
I too am anti-NaBloPoMo. I honestly don't see what the point is.
There's no way I'm keeping up with things. The idea is flawed, but OK. The execution, in many parts, is rushed. I wonder how many people pre-wrote posts to help them on the busy days. Not enough, perhaps!
Um, I love you for saying this. I like to keep my reader at zero. ZERO. And that's freaking impossible with NaBloPoMo going on. I never joined because I have a strange feeling that when forced to write everyday, my post by day 20 would be something like this:
" I like cereal. Sometimes I like soup. But mostly cereal."
So, I thought I was dodging a huge bullet by not going into it, but I find it's almost harder not participating. A few bloggers who've been blogging for years told me that they shut off their google reader in November. They participate in NaBlo... but just keep pushing 'read all' in their google. I don't know if I could do that. I feel like I would be missing out on so many unread posts. At the same time, I have to say, I've pushed the 'read all' button once or twice this month. I feel bad, but it was honestly stressing me out.
