Book Blogger Hop

The weekly Book Blogger Hop is brought to you by Crazy For Books. Just click on the link to get the rules and to participate. It's a lot of fun and a great way to meet new book bloggers!

Book Blogger Hop
This week's question is: How many blogs do you follow?

At the moment, 63 (counting only the blogs I am officially "Following" through Google.) Which isn't that much, by some standards, but I think it's rather a lot. I don't follow indiscriminately. Every blog I am following is one that I really enjoy. Some of them I jump on each new post; a few I only click through to if I see a post that sounds interesting. If I like a blog enough, I'll keep it on my follow list even after months of not seeing any updates. If I find, though, that I haven't bothered to read any new posts for some time, then I'll probably go ahead and delete that blog. I have too little time as it is, and if I need to watch myself carefully so that I don't wind up spending all day reading new blog posts. There is just too much excellent writing out there and I can't read it all - not if I want to have a life, too.

Not that there isn't something to be said for being found, mummified, in front of my computer screen, having died while reading. There are worse ways to go? Oh, stop shaking your heads at me.

Being found mummified in front of a computer screen? O.o Shall I say, story of my future?

I wasn't shaking my head. I was smiling.

Stopping by through the Hop! I really enjoyed this post. I'm a new follower :) That's an interesting point you made about being careful about the blogs you follow. Should be everyone's strategy. I find myself overwhelmed sometimes by the many many blogs I follow.
