Sorry if you wanted an answer to this I don’t have one! I always follow anyone who follows me, I also keep a lookout for interesting blogs using links from other blogs, freshly pressed. (Which seems to have mysteriously disappeared this morning.) While writing this I have found a new feature called discover. The point being I now have a lots of blogs to read keeping up with them can be a full time job.
I turned off e-mail alerts after my box got swamped. I use the reader but that way you manage to miss a lot of posts it’s just pot luck if you look at it the right time. I try clicking on any blog that’s like or commented on mine to check for new posts. That’s not fool proof either they might have missed my posts. I’ve now tried working my way through my followers list to look out for anything good I’ve missed.
Once I’ve found the post now you have the problem of time to read them. I try and read a block at the weekend and a few each night when I get home from work. I found sitting on the loo a great time to read a few posts! Watching T.V with a laptop on my lap, if I can get it off the kids.
This seams an awful lot of hard work but I persevere because it’s worth it. Since reading blogs I have learned a huge amount about writing and publishing, which is what I hoped. I have also discovered I quite like poetry, I have seen so many doors from Brighton that it feels like I live there. I have discovered the different pressures and problem in other cultures, something I have never give a lot of thought to before. I have also discovered so excellent self-published books. Probably the best bit I have made contact with an amazing group of people.
