To my wonderful readers:
I cannot begin to express how guilty I feel right now about what I did last night. I feel like I genuinely betrayed/snubbed so many of my closest online friends. Friends that I've come to know and love and really appreciate not only for what they contribute to my life--my happiness--but for their ability to put themselves out there and take a risk, large or small, to share themselves with me. I know it's probably silly but it's been eating at me.==================================================
Let me explain: It was 3a.m. (0300hrs) and I was in Google Reader playing this never-ending game of catch-up. Yesterday I had narrowed unread posts to 325 from a whopping 514! I went to my classes and when I returned Google Reader said I had about 475 unread. "OK," I said, "I can do this!."
So one by one I viewed and read and contributed. At 3a.m. I had 482 unread blogs. I hadn't caught up, and I realized that throughout this week with school and work I stand no chance whatsoever.
That's when I did it...I couldn't stop myself. I saw the button, I clicked it, and for an instant it felt good.
"Mark all as read"
That's when it hit me. I would never have the opportunity to see what these people wanted to share. I can no longer add my $0.02 to theirs. Those discussions are for all intents and purposes...gone. And if I couldn't even keep up last night, will I ever be able to?
So to my blogger family, I offer my sincerest gratitude for the love and support you've given me. And I will try to find a way to return it to you again and again. Can you forgive me?
I don't have much for you today because I spent all of last night supporting everyone else (had a blast though, even cried a little--cuz I'm a baby like that). But I wanted to drop in and share a couple of pictures and let you know what I'm working on. My next post (God willing) will be responses to all of the cool comments and questions you guys have left on my blog. One big "FanQ" post, if you will. And I think I can do it in a fun/entertaining way that everyone will enjoy. So if you got any questions shoot them my way gettem in while you can! Just bear in mind, I'm a big fan of Anonymous and anonymity (for many obvious reasons). But ask and comment whatever you like, I'm interested to see what you've all got on your minds! :)
