The last few days my Google reader has been showing 12 posts. 12 posts I had already read, but when I clicked to mark them that way - they wouldn't change. I thought - okay, Google is having problems. I'll bet when I check tomorrow, the ones I tried to mark as read will not be showing as unread anymore. Um . . . no.
What I didn't think about, and I cannot believe I didn't notice this - but that number of posts, 12, was not going up either. Today I realized that too many days had passed with no new posts from bloggers that frequently post every day, or at least - every other day. So I started clicking. There were posts all over the place!
After rebooting my computer (I DO work in I.T.) I had 60 posts to read. I'm sure I could have just restarted Firefox but whatever. Rebooting had the desired effect.
So what did I do then? I read and read and barely commented at all. I STILL feel guilty when I do that and feel like I need to come out and apologize as if every person who writes a blog I read is offended when they realize (immediately of course) that I haven't been leaving my love notes on their blogs. Sigh.
I need to get over myself.
