I dipped in a toe, enjoyed the first few weeks, and jumped right in.
That blog-reading “experience” from my pre-blog days consisted of about 10 to 15 blogs that I followed and looked in on every day. But once I started blogging, and I began to collect some followers, everything changed. Wooshhhh.
I went to go and see what these other bloggers were doing. I wanted to know who they were, and see their blogs.
I began to establish connections within the blogging community.
And this is when I fell through the Rabbit-Hole. I’d visit a blog, click around a few posts, thoroughly enjoy myself, and tap on the follow button.
Amazing people are writing amazing blogs. I’m reading about different cultures, written by people from all around the world. I’m following experiences that I can only imagine, in places I’ll never go.
I’m learning about music, art, gardening, cooking, humor, and a host of other passions. I’m reading about kindness, compassion, volunteerism, ecology, biology, tech, pets, books, movies, science and animals.
These blogs are eye-opening and mind-expanding.
I’m learning things I didn’t know that I didn’t know.
But now …… I am close to overwhelmed. I follow so many blogs, that my mailbox is always full with notifications of new posts. I wonder how other people manage?
There is NOTHING to weed out. Each and every one of these blogs is unique and special and important to me.
And …. every day I discover more blogs … and, yes, I get hooked. I click on Follow.
I looked at the WordPress stats. (just WordPress ..I know there are many other hosts.) They say that there are more than 54 MILLION WordPress blogs around our planet. They also say that there are over 500,000 new posts every day.
Uh….. that’s a lot.
I can manage, now. But if I keep on following, there must be a tipping point. How many is too many?
