My name is Caroline.
And I have an addictive personality.

My addictions include but are not limited to:
romantic comedies

And now, thanks to my dear friend, who will be referred to as Queenie to protect her identity, my list now includes:
Google Reader

Now, I'm sure there are some of you readers who don't believe that this is an issue.

"Oh Caroline, it's probably not as bad as you think."

"Really? Google Reader? How can you become addicted to that?"

Those who doubt are seriously underestimating how easily this got out of control.

I've been a Google Reader member (?) for about 1 month now. When Queenie introduced me to it, I got stumped and couldn't remember any of the blogs that I like! To be fair, that's partially because I was addicted to my stumble button for so long (one of the reasons why some people look to me for random websites) and I wasn't good about actually following blogs. Enter Reader.

So instead of of adding blogs that I knew, I added bundles offered by Reader. I think I added about 7 bundles. Alright. That's not true. It was more like 13. I'm blushing as I type this. Each bundle came with between 4 and 8 blogs. That's right. You do the math.

In the last month, I've tweaked, added, organized, familiarized and any other -ized that I could in order to get my Reader where I want it to be. In the process, I have also become a pusher for reader.

"Wait. You have gmail and don't use your Reader? Where's a computer? Allow me to introduce you."

Keep in mind, last night, when I went to bed, there were NO new articles in my reader.

This morning, at 6:33 am, there are 204 items in my Reader.

I haven't gone a week without adding new blogs to follow.

Next time, I'll explain what I love love love about Reader. :)

  1. Oops... didn't realize I was such an enabler! (Oh wait, I totally did.)

    I like the shared items in the left column here too. :)
