Help Me Keep Up With You!

Hello Everyone!

This week, I have a terrible confession to make. Here goes!

As a blogger, one of the things I struggle with most is keeping up with everyone else’s blogs. Some blogs I follow just to show my support, and some I follow because I love the content. But the ones that mean the most to me are the blogs of readers I have interacted with so regularly that they have become dear friends to me in the blogosphere.

But here’s the problem. I spend hours combing through my WordPress reader each week, and often never run into even one post from these bloggers, because I follow so many! While I love to read everyone else’s posts, I can’t read them all, and first preference should always go to the people I feel most strongly connected to.

So, to all the people who are a regular presence on my blog, and find that I sometimes fall behind on keeping up with yours, please feel free to share links to your blog posts below.

If you’re not a blogger (and even if you are!), I would love to connect via social media. If you’re on Twitter and Instagram, or have a Facebook page for your blog that I can follow, please leave the links to those below, as well.

I can’t wait to see what presents you guys leave for me in the comments — and I hope that you will connect with each other, as well! 🙃

I’ll keep republishing this throughout the year as a prompt to help you prompt me, so I don’t miss out on the works of the people who matter most to me. As for me, my most recent posts are:

I am grateful for everyone who has supported my blog over the years, but this is only for people I connect with on a regular basis — even if you have also fallen off the bandwagon, recently.

    1. I hope you enjoy it!

      I already follow your blog, so a link to a specific post is easier for me to keep track of. I checked out your last review. I added The Lying Game to my reading list.

      Hopefully one day you’ll be reviewing my Moreau Witches! 😄

      1. Right now The Halley Branch is my main WIP. I have 2 other finished books in rough draft, one very rough! I’m pretty much sitting on them for now, at least until I get The Halley Branch into a publishable state…

      2. I am doing some research with the Halley Branch to do some queries (part of the reason for the blurb this early), but if nothing comes up I will self publish. I’m sitting on the others because I have a hard time multi-tasking my writing. If I’m working on several things I begin to mix names and things.

      3. Yeah I get it. I used to write a lot music and did a lot of research. A lot of musical artists got screwed because someone else had the rights to their work.

      4. Yup, or they own your name as a brand. My dad’s best friend is signed to Universal Records and we work with him on a few projects so we deal with it first-hand.

    1. Haha, I can’t for sure. But there are some people I would rather not miss posts from and I could use a bit of help from them, every so often, in pointing out the ones I missed. 🙂

  1. This is a good idea. I’ve had so little time recently to read the blogs I do subscribe to. I have a small selection too, reading only those I feel provide valuable content. Not sure if you’re already subscribed to my Facebook page. Aside from my blog posts linked there, I also post links I find on the internet about freelancing and the digital economy, but also on nerdy book and film stuff, including my self-published fiction 🙂

      1. I don’t like the notifications on Facebook any more, it never tells me when I get a new follow or who it is (or if they do I don’t know how to find it – it certainly isn’t the notifications). Nevertheless, I’ve found your page and followed you back 😀

  2. It can be overwhelming at times. I often have spurts of writing and then nothing for I while. I do always try and keep up with the blogs I follow on a regular basis. 🙂

  3. I hear you! It’s hard to keep up. At one point I was at 1500 and have whittled my blog list down to 300 in the Reader, which you are included in! Cheers!

    1. Thank you! I like the variety and the wonderful surprises in the reader, so I haven’t tried to lower my list. Also, so many blogs go inactive after just a few months. They lessen the list for you. =/
