What a sad title to a post. But it's true. The time has come for me to stop reading blogs. Period. I am not keeping any of my blog subscriptions in Google Reader. Actually, I've made a list of them all, and I will start reading in the blogging world again someday. But for right now, I need to cut this hobby out of my life.
Why am I doing this? It's because I am working on my master's project like crazy, and I just don't have the time to keep up on the lives of all of my friends. And if I keep subscribing to blogs, I will want to read them. I can't ignore all of the unread blog posts in Google Reader! So I just have to unsubscribe from them all. This is in the hopes of cutting out a major distraction that is detrimental to getting my master's project done.
Will I continue blogging? Yes. Dave and I are going to be living apart for the next few months, and we'll have twice as much "life" to talk about here. And I want to still be a writer. There is something very therapeutic about writing that I think will be good for me as I face these months of hard work and spousal separation! So if you are a follower, please don't drop me just because I don't comment on your blog anymore. I'll be back to blog reading and commenting in about 3.5 months.
