Morning Meandering Confession

a big improvement

Ok…. does this happen to anyone else?

I like to get up early  in the morning and have my coffee while I visit some of my favorite book blogs.  Oh, you know who you are….I am on your door step with coffee cup in hand and hair still wild as actually attempting to fix it prior to two cups of coffee is not a good idea…

So I go to a book blog and I am reading about some delightful book review or book related happening when my eye wanders over to their side bar.  Whats this?  Another book blog?  So after I pay my comment respects to said blog owner, I click on the sidebar blog and find a whole new blog filled with book related things that make my typing fingers tingle with excitement to post a comment on what I have found.  AND THEN, I see something on their sidebar…  that’s right – another book blog that sounds interesting….  and I click on that…. (are you seeing the pattern?)

By the time I come out of the blogesphere (although there are times I wonder if I ever fully come out of it….) many things have happened:

1.  I have no doubt added a book to my “TBR” list

2.  I have no doubt found my way into a blog I have not read before and liked it

3.  I have no doubt become lost, and by the time I snap out of it (usually because duty calls and I must go to work!) I can not rememberbe the book how I got to where I wound up.

Lately I have found that in work conversations I think in book titles or book quotes.  Yesterday afternoon I handled a particularity difficult phone conversation well and hung up and and said “Crisis Management” (then wrote it down because I liked the “title”)  Later I cleaned up around the coffee room where it can quickly become a disaster zone and satisfied with my  job well done said, “Mischief Managed.”

Ok… enough morning rambling…. and I have to go to work.  :)  Anyone else out there care to share?

  1. Happens to me a lot… not as often now because I usually have errands to run and appts to go to.

  2. OMG! Yes! This happens to me all the time! I end up online for over an hour when I only wanted to be on for a couple of minutes!!

  3. When I first started blogging it happened all the time! Now I have learned to keep it under control. Most of the time. :-)

  4. All the time, that’s how I have so many blogs on my sidebar now

  5. You have described my mornings to a tee! Blogging has become a way of life for me lately (in case you haven’t noticed, I now have seven of my own and follow about seventeen!), so I can totally relate.

    Lost in the Blogosphere…now doesn’t that sound like a good book title?

    Sometimes at night, I dream about blogging!

  6. I do love my mornings! I love being able to drink my coffee while enjoying my favorite blogs and then finding new ones. I don’t know what I will do when the school year starts back up. I think I will go into blog reading withdrawal!

  7. You nailed it girl! :)

  8. You sound like me. lol. I have found quit a few giveaways that way!

    I wanted to remind you of my Show Us Your Library Meme on my blog. I know you said you wanted to participate. :)

  9. Apparently I went a ‘subscribe’-crazy, and now Google Reader is always too much. I skipped yesterday, so right now there are 922 unread articles in it. Much more time than I want to invest, so it is time to start pruning.

  10. Yep it happens to me too. I start at one blog and end up at the other end of the www!

    I only follow about 12 blogs though, I was following a lot more but it kept restricting my reading time :( Well that and running around after my twin 11mo boys!

  11. Yep, that’s exactly how I have lost many many mornings. I began at 8 am and next thing I know it’s noon and I still haven’t showered.. sigh. Then my Amazon.com wish list has grown exponentially and I have entered 100 contests.

  12. I love these posts! Haha you are too funny – but I definitely know what you mean!

  13. I do this all the time. I hate when I can’t remember where I saw something. I try to backtrack and sometimes manage to get there again, but usually it’s lost forever unless I just happen to stumble on it again by accident!

  14. I have an exciting award for you! Come visit!

  15. Yes, it’s happening right now! It’s usually somewhat under control, becuase there’s always someone else that wants to use the computer!

  16. Happens to me all the time! I get sucked into the blog-universe and happily skip from one to the next, then suddenly it’s midnight and I have to go to work the next day! Will probably have to prune the list of blogs I follow as it’s getting out of control, but they’re all soooo good! *L*

  17. “Mischief Managed” — love it! :) That’s my Harry Potter feel-good moment of the day!

    I’m right there with you — I absolutely love finding new book blogs, setting up my little literary tent and camping out there for a while! Like you, I add a ton of books to my wishlists and TBR stacks, inevitably slap them on my blogroll and then wander back later in the day to see if anything else is going on.

    I totally relate to not remembering how you got to a certain place, haha… especially since later, I can’t always remember how to get back! The Internet is such a wide, fun, cavernous and exciting place — that’s constantly calling my name! :)

  18. What a great post…I think so many of us can relate to that – lol!

  19. Internet Time Vs Real Time. Back in the early 90s when dial-up was the best you could hope for, my husband and I came up with the question “Internet Time or Real Time?” – we’d keep clicking on one link and then another after we’d told the other person, “I’ll be downstairs in 10 minutes”. Internet time varies and can be 2 times or 5 times as long as real time. :)

  20. I used to be like that. But because of school and work I was so busy I stopped. Today is the first time in months that I am blog surfing. Unfortunately I am not getting the countagious feeling like I used to have. At least now. But I can remember when I did. I would be on the computer for hours it would seem. All of a sudden the whole day would get away from me.
