Google Reader...wow

So my friend blueviolet over at A Nut in a Nutshell answered some questions on her blog awhile ago.  I decided to do the same questions.  Please be sure to check her out.

You're kind of crazy with your commenting. What gives?

I love love to read other blogs but I'm so far behind right now.  I am trying to catch up I promise.  But it seems that I keep falling behind no matter how I try.

I was trying to keep up with all of my followers blogs.  But honestly its impossible.

So following blueviolet's example, I am now using Google Reader to do the following:

I have a folder of Must Read blogs in my google reader. Once I find that I'm visiting a blog frequently, it goes in that folder.

My friends are automatically put in there.  I'm always looking for new and fun blogs to read.  Keep my interest..be funny I'm gonna follow you.

If you follow me, if you make comments on my blog.  I will follow you as well.  I love to visit the people that comment on my posts.  I love to learn more about my readers.  I love to share with you.

I am trying to read my Must Reads every day.  Now since I just started google reader, I have like a 1000 posts that show as new.  I'm doing my best to catch up with everyone.  I was behind before but I didn't know it was that much. 

If I find that I am leaving comments and never getting answers back... I will stop commenting.  Just like blueviolet, I don't like one-sided friendships. 

So if you are following me, expect that I am now a stalker of yours.  Ok ok I'm a friendly stalker.

Do you respond to every comment you receive?

A lot of times I answer your comments by email but sometimes I do it by stopping in at your blog.  I'm just finding it so consuming sometimes.  If you take the time to write a nice comment, I'm going to respond more than likely by email.  Please be patient though.  I do get behind.

I hate your giveaways. Why do you do them?

Well I have only done one of them.  I really liked it.  I expect that I will do more if... big if.. I can get sponsors.  If you want me to do a giveaway, please be sure to contact me.

How come you never post your awards?

So this question really doesn't apply to me.  I try to post all my awards.  I try to award them according to the rules.  I, also, try to never give an award out twice to the same person.  I simply love acknowledging my wonderful blogger friends and the new blogs I found. 

And another question of my own:  Will you being doing reviews in the future?

Yes, I plan on doing reviews in the future but I will always have a blog about something else on those days as well.  I don't want to become just one thing or another.

I love talking about my kids.  I love pictures.  I love sharing moments.  I love sharing things that I have experienced or will.  I love sharing my family's story.  But most of all, I love that you enjoy reading my blog.

I love you guys..  Now stop over and check out blueviolet.  You will appreciate her I promise.  She's great.

PR NOTE:  If you are interested in me doing a review or giveaway for you, please contact me at tami@heartsmakefamilies.com.  Thanks so much.

It does help to have my A List of people I read. If someone I don't notice makes a comment I make sure I go over and put them into the list. I try to read my followers and commenters. This time of year I can only do my A List!

I'm with you. It is so easy to get behind. So then I go to my "must reads" and those who comment first.

I need to figure out how to make the Google Reader work for me.

I don't know how to do google reader and I am not sure I am up for learning something new, today. I do try my best to keep up with all of you.
Your comments on my blog mean a lot to me and I appreciate the time you take to stop by.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Blessings, andrea

I discovered Google Reader through Margaret (Fact Woman). I could never keep up without it!

Hey, you're talking about me behind my back! ;)

It's nice to know that people are kinda thinking the same way I think about things! :) That must be why we get along so well!
