Time management. Always a problem. And now? I’m addicted to blogs. The problem? Many that I read religiously annoy the hell out of me. Oh there’s a handful that I heart, but most? Can’t stand. It’s like an abusive relationship. The precious time that I waste on some of my bookmarked list could be better spent doing something I love.
My plan was to save the reading for in the evenings. Never happens. I HAVE to take a peek, not once but several times throughout the day. Am I a blog stalker? O.C.D.? My list needs to be purged. I have the power. The blogs that I have listed on my sidebar I adore, and will add a couple of new discoveries. But the rest of the self-absorbed whining nit-wits on my bookmarked list? Ditch. Must make the break. I need an intervention.
Thank you for letting me share. Pray for my recovery.
I know of that which you speak.

Don’t feel bad because you’re not alone. I waste a lot of my day the same way.
But now, I only read blogs from my Google Reader. I’ve even set the display to only show me which blogs have new content, so I don’t keep visiting sites that have nothing recent.
Has it helped? I’ve gone from three hours a day to two and a half. Is that good?
TT- I remember a post you did that mentioned you had 50+ blogs a day that you read, and I snorted thinking “what a time waster”.
Hello? Look in the mirror!
Yes, I use a reader too. What a time saver! Ha!
You know, this is me! I can sit here and read blogs, just random ones and kill and entire day! I think it’s my way of zoning out, not taking care of what needs to be taken care of. But, hence, there are worse things I could be doing. I even recently started my own blog, in an attempt to be constructive at the computer! May I link your blog up on mine? If I can figure it out…….Kirsten
Sister Christian, miss you! Definitely a stall tactic. Can’t wait to check out your blog, I’ll link it up on my sidebar.
Wasted time doing something I love… like yoga! I must get back to class. Hate me.
