It’s a bit awkward to meet people at conferences and hear, “Oh, I read your blog all the time!” when I don’t reciprocate. The problem is that there’s a lot of really good blogs out there, but not enough time to read them all. I have a list of blogs I hit on a regular basis, but sometimes I don’t always get to the blogs that haven’t been in the spotlight for long.
So, sometimes it’s a bit awkward to smile and thank someone when I don’t return the courtesy of reading their fairly well-known blog (or listen to their podcast.)
For example, even though I’ve never met her at a conference, I didn’t find out that the “kind of a big deal” Amber Night was in a GU Comic until about a week afterwards. I had fallen behind on reading both her blog and the comic.
Anyway, I’m mostly posting this up so that the people who claim to read my blog will have to post “Do you mean me?” type responses so I can see if they really do read my blog. ;)
