We all have our habits or systems for how we read the blogs we’re subscribed to, I guess. Mine is that I have it set to receive them in my email. I have a filter in my Gmail, so they all go in to a folder of its own. I trot through this list of email most every day until that folder is clean and empty. Recently, I’ve felt that I’ve been through that list in no time, but I thought ‘oh well, it’s Easter and people have other things to do…’.
However, there’s one particular blog that I’ve had problems with on and off before and now I thought it was strange that she hadn’t been blogging for quite some time, so I went to her page. In the navigation bar at the top of the page, the «Following» was checked, but I had not received an update for … I don’t know ..maybe two weeks. Now that I saw the ‘Following’ was checked, I found it really intriguing. Went to http://subscribe.wordpress.com and my list there was very short — I couldn’t find her blog on that list, but there I found this LINK and lo and behold!!! Most of my subscribtions had been set to deliver updates «Never»! Not all of them, mind you, some were set to «Immediately». I don’t have a clue how this has happened … I’ve never even been in that page before!
I have this eerie feeling though, that this coincides with the trouble they had with the commenting system … but that might be just that; a coincidence!
So … to all my blogging buddies here: I’m sorry — I’m really behind in commenting, and I don’t know whether I’ll be able to catch up or just start ‘from scratch’.
On a different note, I was looking at the ‘Freshly Pressed’ blogs, and saw one entitled «Painting Easter Eggs without the Eggs». Two things struck me right away: 1. I haven’t had one egg this Easter! 2. I could paint Easter Eggs without eggs too, so I fired up Photoshop and made (not laid) an egg.
