So So Sorry

Recently I’ve had to make some changes in my WP subscriptions, and email preferences.   I was receiving over 75 emails a day!!  It was chaos! ( Not to mention, digital clutter.)

 I couldn’t deal with it!!!  ARGH!!  So, I had to make some hard choices.  If you’re one of the blogs that I quit receiving emails for, therefore I don’t read you every day, and comment, please forgive me.  It wasn’t anything against you.  Nothing personal at all!!  Trust me, it was me, not you.  Sorry I had to break up with you, but I have to get some sleep some time!

      • Hi Melinda. For my “real” job, I have great time management skills. Unfortunately when it comes to keeping up with blogging and the blogs of others, I’m a disaster. Hugh (you’ll see a comment from him on some of my posts, and can get his link that way) did a post about this, which was highly praised. I’ve seen a few people say that they only comment once a week, per blog. Since so many of the people I follow are… prolific in posting (while I only post once a week for the most part) I thought that might be a reasonable, low guilt strategy for me. I’m TRYING to do that, but not succeeding yet. Have a wonderful weekend . Hugs.

      • Yeah, I read Hugh’s post. That’s what initially gave me permission to quit feeling like a failure! I was beating myself up for noting keeping up, and I was not sleeping properly. Once a week is a reasonable goal! Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on me! I feel special! Talk to you soon, Melinda

  1. I was having the same overwhelming experience and blogging was starting to wear me down. I now read posts through my reader and have forgiven myself in advance for missing a few. Blogging is fun again, and that’s the point, my dear. Smile.

  2. I don’t blame you, it’s a hard choice. Out of 480 blogs I supposedly follow, where maybe 300 are active every day, I had to limit daily emails to my favs. I just followed new people from blogging 201, so soon I will have to make decisions when to read theirs.

  3. Oh my goodness! I have enough issues with digital clutter (over 1,000 unread messages) without the blog email. I actually read people’s blogs because I DON’T get them on email. When I open my WP Reader, it’s like opening up a good book of short stories…and I can read them all in order or skip around if I want 🙂

  4. Hey it happens, don’t worry about it. I’ve blocked all emails from wordpress a while ago… you might want to change what kind of emails you receive from your social media accounts too. I no longer us emails as you can get all your notifications from each site when you visit. I don’t have time to go through hundreds of daily emails. Find what works for you. Hardly anyone knows the difference anyway. 🙂
