Confession Time

Yikes!  In the spring, in my Long Creative Project Group, I admitted to my friends the primary reason I don't post on this blog as often as I'd like: 


Blessing and curse, you are, GR.  
If you don't know what it is, but you are interested in blogs at all, come along and be addicted with me, won't you?!  Google Reader lets you subscribe to your favorite blogs.  When you open it, you see a list of the blogs you like; new posts are highlighted so you can quickly decide which and/or whether to read.  

It's my crack, everyone.  
I used to read magazines, but now, my magazines just sit in piles around the house gathering dust (so why even get magazines?  well, what else can you get with those last 2641 miles on that airline you never plan to fly again?!).  Magazines are not as portable as an iPhone with Google Reader loaded up.  

So why am I confessing this now?  For one thing, I have crossed an invisible line: I'm FORTY now.  It's time to come clean on some things.  Even if they aren't so life and death.  

And the real real reason is:
I just clicked on something in the sidebar of Google Reader that says "Trends" and I found the following fascinating (highly embarrassing?!) information about my reading habits: 

From your 212 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 1,057 itemsclicked 55 items,starred 5 items, and emailed 1 items.

You've got me beat. Since January 30, 2007, I've read 49,731. Never knew about that Trends function. Cool!
