slim pickings in my blog world
I have a confession to make. It’s about my blog consumption, blog reading habits.
About 3 years ago, I used to skim through about 1,000 blogs using the web-based Bloglines reader. I trimmed that down to about 300 select blogs last year. And now, I’m working my way down to about 100 blogs or less.
I can no longer keep up with all the text, audios, and videos strewn everywhere in cyberspace. I think information and knowledge is growing much faster than doubling every 10 years; it’s growing more along the lines of an escalating exponential curve.
Maybe it’s just my aging. Last time (about a year ago) I saw an eye doctor, and he said I’m right there on the edge of needing bifocals. After this summer, I’m noticing a little difficulty focusing while reading. No fun. Psychosomatic symptom? Self-fulfilling prophecy?
