Weekend Commentor?

I've come up with different plans so that I can stay up on blogging - writing, reading and commenting. But it has never worked out as planned. Then again, how often d0 our plans go exactly the way we thought?

I will save the question for another day. Today, I am trying to figure out how I can keep up with everything.

We all know it is not that difficult to write a blog. Some are short and sweet, others can go on and on, and some are inpsired. However, what takes time is keeping up with all of the blogs we love. And believe me, there are a LOT of blogs I love. However, I don't have time to read them during the week and this saddens me. After working all day, family, writing and theater projects I've gotten involved in, I have no time left for blogs, unless I wish to give up sleep. But, I think I may have come up with the answer.

Last Saturday, after I woke and grabbed my coffee I began reading blogs. I was at my computer for a few hours and was able to read and comment on almost a weeks worth of blogs. I loved it and it was a great way to start the weekend. I didn't feel rushed and I was able to enjoy. No pressure to try and keep up (forget ahead of the game).

So, that is my plan (for the moment anyway). I am not going to beat myself up on trying to stay on top of blogs during the week, but get caught up over the weekend when I have more time to enjoy and comment.

Do you think it matters so much if a comment comes in a few days later than the post? I wouldn't mind, but perhaps others track daily traffic. If so, sorry.

What about you? Do you have a sure fire plan that helps you mix blogging in with other things in your life during the week? And, would you prefer someone comment on the same day you post or are you okay with the weekend reader?


  1. It's so tough to find time to do it all. I try to make time every day...but life gets in the way. Sometimes I'm crunched, doing revisions for my editor and such, and I just have to put blog-reading on the back burner for a while, which makes me feel horrible. That's when I try to post less blogs too because I feel like I can't pay back those who read mine.

  2. Stephanie, I have found that I do post less when I can't read as much.

  3. you can only do what you can do...sounds like a good plan.

  4. I think you need to find a plan that works for you. I know there are days when I just can't fit in reading blogs... so why do it if I can't enjoy it, right? Go ahead and read and comment when you can and when you want. It isn't supposed to be a burden. ;)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. You are right, Lin, we can only do what we can do.

    Alicia, it is something I really enjoy and not something I want to rush through, because you are right, I wouldn't enjoy it that way. It has never been a chore it is just something that is lower on the priority list.

  6. Do what you are able and so you can enjoy your time strolling around Blogland. :O)

    Happy weekend!!!

  7. Great plan! I don't think anyone minds when you comment. I can only get around about once a week to the ones I love--that's all time allows if I want to write!

  8. It is easier for me to write a blog or two on the weekend rather than during the week. When I have time, I like to read a few each night - - - and comment if I can, but have learned not to feel guilty if I can't. If I didn't work outside the home, I can see how easy it would be to get caught up in having a LOT of blog friends. It has been a fun way to unwind from the day - - - and I have met some very nice people.

  9. I catch up on visiting and commenting in batches and often have a few posts on each b blog to catchup on. I have a habit of poppingin to my computer room to turn off the monitor and, yes a couple of hours later manage to do that!! Mostly I visit those that visit me and have made some great connections and friends, both in the flesh and on lin e.

  10. I try on Sunday morning or late Saturday night. But Sunday morning before church works for me.
