I used to use Technorati to keep track of my blogs, but that rapidly stopped working. The database couldn't keep track of the amount of blogs I read in one day. Literally, there would be days where I would sign in and the thing would just stop working on me because I read so many blogs. So, I switched over to Google Reader, and haven't looked back sense.
How many blogs, you ask, do I read? As of today? 139. Blogs. On an average day I read over 200 blog posts, and that peaks with about 300 blog posts on Mondays (the day when most of my weekly blogs post). The numbers dip down on the weekend... with Fridays typically having 170 posts, and Saturday and Sunday having 69 and 100 posts, respectively.
But surely you don't read all that material, you say. And I don't. There are posts that I completely skip, sometimes. I'd say I skip about 10% of the articles. Probably another 5% I read the first paragraph and move on. But the rest? I read them.
Of course, some of those blogs are photoblogs, and some of them are graphs and charts. I admit that.
But what I want to point out today is how many blogs of mine are craft, knitting, crochet and spinning blogs. Take a look:
I have seven spinning blogs I follow.
And FIFTY-TWO crochet and knit blogs I follow.
So I have two questions. The first, would you be interested in a post where I review these blogs, perhaps on a weekly basis? (and when I run out of my personal favorites, where are review other's blogs?)
And second, how many blogs do you follow? How many of them are craft related?
