HELP! I'm lost.

That's what happens when I start reading blogs. I start checking those on my links but then like to read the comments, too. I think, "This comment is interesting. I must check out this person's site". Before I know it, one site has lead to another and another, and I wonder, "How did I get here?" I see so many interesting posts along the way that I just want to keep reading, but I know that I have other things to do and I can't sit here for hours.

Blogs provide such a smorgasboard of interesting delights that I become overwhelmed by the choice. I skip around the world from Hobart to Brisbane, from Florida to Canada, from New Zealand to Scotland, and almost everywhere in between. Then I think of a something that I want to read again but I can't remember where it was or how to get there!

HELP!

oh, this cracked me up! I'm still sitting here in my nightgown & bedsocks!! But this is my last blog for the morning ~ i promise...lol

Alice said...

Yeah, right - Kali. Bet you're tempted when you have your next coffee to just sit down and take a peek for a couple of minutes. It sure is addictive - wonderfully so.

Hi Alice...this happens to me too. so here is what I do. I have my all time favourites that I visit daily ( lots of times daily *LOL*)
then I have another favourites folder of 'blogs that I like' ..when I have time.. I visit there and if I find other blogs by following links then I add them to my favourites... about once a week, I kind of cull , deleting ones that I dont find that much fun....
I am tempted lots to come back and peek.. guess that is why I am way behind my housekeeping

Alice said...

That's a great idea, Robyn, having different folders for the blogs you want to visit at least once a week. You are just so organised that I don't believe for one minute that you are behind with your housework.

Thank you for responding to my call for HELP.

you have to bookmark bookmark bookmark. then when you have time you can go through your bookmarks.

Hello, I just found your blog that way!! I know what you mean. I have sooo many in my favourites and then I get confused as to whether I have looked at them that day or not. It is sooo addictive looking at blogs, there are so many out there. If only there were more hours!

Hi Alice, I think we are all soul mates - we knew each other in previous lives and have come back together in this one...
Kath Red, your comment about your nana's Elna has just added a few grey hairs to my basic blonde. 35 years isn't so old for a sewing machine - well, not for this little Black Duck! I still have the Singer 'Hushmatic' that my Dad bought for me when I started learning how to make my own clothes at the age of 14...and that was 43 years ago!

Hi Alice, I found you from your comment on my blog. I do exactly same--surf from blog to blog and then can't remember where I saw what. I just got home from work and the first thing I did was turn on the 'puter to check out the blogs...I guess there are worse addictions, don't you think?

Beverly said...

If I like a blog I put it in my favorites if I keep going back I link it to my blog. I just found you from Zoey's blog and now your in my favorites:)

Sabine said...

So that's how I ended up here! LOL! I've already put a link to your site in my 'Blogs' folder, so I can come back and read some more.

Taracotta said...

I do the same thing and that's how I got to your blog...through Zoey's. LOL I enjoy browzing and the ones I find interesting I bookmark them...then I have the ones that i will have on my own blog under "blogs I read" I go to those all the time.

Hi, Alice, here I am months later catching up on your blog! I probably won't get to all that I've missed tonight, so I'll just ask you: has anyone told you about RSS feeds and feed readers yet? If not, email me and I'll try to explain. It will help you know who has posted something new.
