What I do when my RSS feed is empty.

I know, I know… lots of you probably didn’t think it could be done did you? Only I don’t have that many feeds in my reader as otherwise I get HUGELY overwhelmed.

So… my feed reader is empty. I guess that means I could write a blog post, right?

WRONG!

I check twitter obsessively.

I check facebook obsessively.

I read and re-read some of my favourite posts.

I play WoW.

Basically I fanny about on the internetz, wasting my time, and being blissfully ignorant for as long as I possibly can.

I’m allowed to do that, right?

It’s *my* free time, so I’ll do what I want!

*stamps feet*

Then it eventually gets to about 11pm and then I have the urge to do something productive, but I don’t have the time or energy by that point to do it!

That’ll teach me right?

Tomorrow I’ll get my bloggy groove on as soon as the kids are in bed.

Only tomorrow evening comes and goes, and so does the next day, and the day after that, and before I know it it’s been five days since my last post.

Who knew apathy could take up so much time?!!

I will be here on Sunday though.

That’s a promise!

    What’s an empty RSS feed….. seriously!!
    I get like that when I’ve just posted – obsessively checking and rechecking for comments…

    ROFL, I really am afraid to try WoW, I have heard it is excellent and that is the bit I am afraid of. Hey, did you ever try bejewelled blitz on FB? a bit addictive too *whistles*

    Oh, and you mean to say to don’t google ‘stuff’??

    Jen 😀

    LOL yes I google stuff too!
    WoW is addictive… I have Bejeweled 2 on my iPhone… it is addictive! 😉

    Hehe why did you stop playing?

  5. June 25, 2010 / 6:37 pm

    Not just me then! hehe 🙂

    I’ve done major *MAJOR* culling with my feed reader. I have to or it ends up overwhelming me waayyyyy too much!

    Can’t afford 🙁 Plus my laptop had a habit of overheating in the middle of dungeon runs! Not good!

    My feed reader is way too long, that’s for sure. I can handle it if I check briefly through it every day – but once I’m gone for a day or two I come back to way too many posts to read through and ever catch up.

    Not reading lots of websites doesn’t seem to give me any more time to do stuff though – ironically enough. I seem to either be playing WoW, sleeping or browsing the web. I really need to find a way to get some time and energy to do some more things. I have a whole back-list of stuff I need/want to do 😉

    awww I know that feeling. 🙁 Maybe one day you can get back to it eh? x

    Oh yes, that’s the same as me! Even when I have a ton of stuff in my feed reader I still don’t do anything productive! lol 🙂
    Thanks for visiting me. 🙂

    I’m getting dangerously close to having to hit mark all as read again! I’m not even reading them in order any more, I’m picking out the best ones to read and ignoring all the others 😉

  11. June 26, 2010 / 8:12 pm

    Hah! That sounds just like someone else I know… Now whooooo could it be???? OH, I know! ME!

  12. June 26, 2010 / 8:46 pm

    Hehe hey it’s our blogs, we can do what we want with them! Amiright? 😉

  13. June 26, 2010 / 9:23 pm

    See I used to be like that, then I did a huge cull down to just the interesting ones that I was only reading anyway. Took a lot of pressure off! 😉

    What is WoW? My reader is overflowing and I am overwhelmed! I’ve at least set it up so my favorite blogs are in a separate folder. It’s harder to cull when you’re on blogger because you have to go to the individual blogs and “unfollow” them to get it out of your reader. And then they might notice because your little gravatar goes away. Ah, the politics of RSS!

    Oooh I wouldn’t like that… I have my blogs all in a reader called Fever that’s hosted on my own account. Which is awesome, until my server goes down! >_<

    WoW is a game called World of Warcraft. If you google it you’ll find out about it, or you could check out my gamer mummy blog – https://gamermummy.net … not that I’m pimping myself at *all*! 😉
