So never mind that I got more comments than I ever got in my whole life from friends of mine telling me that of COURSE I should have been using Firefox ages ago . . . (thanks for never telling me anything important!!!)
And never mind the fact that I am happily blogging again . . . (as if you hadn’t noticed?!)
Seriously. I have a new problem! Don’t you feel sorry for me?! (and even if you don’t, now that I know that you HAVE THE ANSWERS TO ALL OF MY WOES, I’m confident that one of you will have a solution for this one . . . )
The one thing I REALLY liked about Internet Explorer 7 was that I could subscribe to RSS feeds quite easily, and could just monitor them from a sidebar that I could show or hide at will. Well, I’ve tried two or three different things with Firefox so far, and I don’t really like any of them. I had tried the IGoogle thing (I know some of you swear by it–or WOULD swear by it if you weren’t good little Reformed girls!–but I just don’t care for it) and now I am working from an additional “page” on my yahoo that allows me to list a bunch of feeds–but the set-up feels cumbersome to me, and I miss the ease of flipping through my RSS feeds with ease, and of not having to backtrack to a centralized page, then scroll through said page, to get to the posts I want to read . . .
Part of the problem is that I definitely have FAR too many feeds that I’m subscribed to. (I always think about something I read–on a blog, I’m sure–about how if you spend too much time reading other people’s blogs, you don’t leave yourself enough time to write your own–I think that’s probably applicable far beyond blogging . . . ) But it’s hard . . . because although I try to prune out some of them on occasion, most of the blogs I read on a regular basis are ones that I’ve become quite fond of. From the single foster mom who I’ve been reading so long that I feel like she’s a friend now, to “IRL” friends that I need to keep up with, there is just so much to read . . . so yes, I need to prune, but what I really need is a better way to get to my ever-growing collection of “must-read” blogs.
any suggestions? (other than “get a life”–thanks–I did try that once!)
ps–seriously–to paraphrase Forrest Gump–you’ve got your Reformed blogs, your black folks’ blogs, your black Reformed folks blogs, your fat chick blogs, your coolest-fat-teenager-EVER blogs (okay, that ones’s one of a kind!), your education blogs, your grammar police blogs, your anti-racism blogs, your loldog blogs, all of those “overheard” blogs, there are lots of those, fried blogs, blog soup, blogs on the half shell . . .
(you get the idea . . . seriously, I keep thinking of categories I’ve missed, but probably nobody is still reading at this point anyway . . . )
