Blog Reading Becomes Habit

A study says that compulsive blog reading has become a habit, just like compulsive email checking.

  1. I agrees with that. I set up my blog recently and I check my blog everyday and read other blogger’s posts. I can say it’s a little bit compulsive to me. 🙂

  2. I do read my feeds each day. But it’s something that I look forward to. I do it in the mornings and once at night. The rest of the day, I’m too busy.

    Same goes with my blogging. Things go south during the weekend, but I find that it’s very motivating to be exposed to such diverse voices.

    However, I rarely comment. I comment from time to time on blogs of people that I’ve known for a while, and on my own blog, but most of the time, I just read posts diagonally. There are some exceptions of course. Like Dooce. I find Heather’s posts really nifty and I savor them.

    I’ve structured my blog reading as well. The first thing I do is go through the link blogs that I read. If there are any interesting links, I blog them. Otherwise I move on. Then I read the blogs that post content. Some blogs like Dosh Dosh, Skelliewag, Steve Pavlina and Copyblogger require that I focus completely on them. So I leave these for later.
