Bad Google Reader, Bad!!

****EDIT: Since posting this I'm wondering if, in fact, you CAN publish comments from the Google Reader page? Maybe I'm having one of my "blonde moments;" ask anyone who knows me, I have them frequently.****

I must submit a sincere apology to all those whose blogs I regularly round.

You see, since I met this new friend, G.R., my instant-gratification needs have been well met. Too well met.

G.R. puts all your blogs at my fingertips, with just a few clicks! I read your stories, see your pictures...all with a visit to just one website. I'm like a leadfoot on the Audobon in a Ferrari; like a fat girl at an all-you-can-eat blog buffet. Faster, faster, more, More!

Unfortunately I can't figure out how to comment using my "connection." I don't think it's possible, is it?

Pssst....come closer. I think G.R. is just using me. He doesn't have my best interests at heart. I've had an epiphany. Blogging is about three things: writing, reading, and interacting. I'm lacking the third in this trinity. I'm two-thirds of a whole as a blogger.

So I'm kicking G.R. to the curb. I'm going to pretend he doesn't exist!

Good bye and Good Riddance. Step to the Left, G.R. I'm going back to blogging Old School.

It is nice to see you back! Im all about instant gratification, but I have a compulsive need to comment on everything!

I use google reader too, but you're right - if you're in a hurry it's easy not to comment, and that's just sad....

I find with G.R. that I comment on people's blogs, then forget to go back and see if they replied...

That said, I'm sticking with it. It makes blog-surfing a lot faster, so I don't feel as bad about all the time I'm wasting!

I use GR and try to comment when I can but probably not as often as I should. But GR has helped me manage my time and get more of my fiction writing done.

Sounds too technical for me !!

Yes I think we're very close to the same side of the island:) I'm just a wee bit south of you living in the Capital Cabana.

So is GR why you haven't posted...in forever? LOL!:)

I find GR to be difficult to use because of having to go to their page. Link clicking works for me. But then, I have no time right now since I'm trying to get my house sold. I'm doing little but working and doing house projects.
