All Blogged Out

I visited your blog today! In fact, I spent all day visiting EVERY single blog in my reader...over 600 blogs. I added them one by one into my bloglist in the sidebar. Once again, would you please check to make sure your blog is there? I also weeded out those blogs that haven't been updated in months or that no longer exist or those that have disabled their feeds. That brought me down to a grand total of 510 blogs. You will notice that some of the blogs in my list are still linking to the feed page. They were NOT doing that when I only had 50 to 100 in the list. Once I got quite a few in there they started turning/changing that way. My guess is that Bloggers list can't handle so many blogs at a time so maybe it drops those that haven't been updated recently? I don't know. I am hoping for a fix from Blogger one of these days, but I'm not holding my breath.

Ouchie. My hand aches from mouse-clicking.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Well, I believe your hand must hurt if you visited over 600 blogs !!! My goodness, I know it is a lot, but if you are anything like me, you must have loved it too !! I see my blog listed in yours and I thank you for that... so sweet of you.

Carolyn said...

LOL! What an adorable picture. 510 blogs in your reader? No wonder your hand hurts. Hope it feels better soon.

Jane said...

Oh Sharon, I've been up with a very disagreeable tummy since 3am and the last thing I needed was to fall off my chair laughing at your photo!!! Brilliant!!!
WOW! How did you manage over 600 ~ I struggle with 64? Well done you xxx

Pike said...

I noticed that one sidebar link module can only update 250 blogs... That's why I have two separate ones on my blog: Pike stitcing again http://pirjoka.blogspot.com. Not on your list, is it? :)

Have a great Halloween day !!

Billie said...

Wow! You are very brave ;-) I have done that occasionally, I know it is very hard work. I couldn't find my blog on your list: Cross Stitcher Anonymous

Christine said...

I adore the picture you have on this post! I'll bet thats just exactly how you feel right now

Annemarie said...

You did that in ONE day??? Goodness. I started a similar procedure months ago, and I'm still not done! What does that say about me? (Or about you?)
I just adore the picture you used. Does that cute little furrball live with you? Please say no, or I will be very jealous indeed.

Peggy Lee said...

Thank you for your visit! Did you see how many followers I have now? I can't wait to get home to offer a giveaway.
Masterchief and I have today off. I'm doing lots of blog reading this morning.
Ahhh....it's good to be a stitcher!

Lynn said...

It's a wonder your hand still functions after all that clicking!!
I have a hard time getting through 30 posts in a day let alone 600!
Good job. And I love that picture of the cat! It started off my day with a smile.

Lesleyanne said...

Well done for reading all those blogs. I think the photo is fantastic.

Annette said...

OMG Sharon you rock. 600 seen on 1day. I've respect for you...
I hope blogger is going to work soon with you.
Good luck...

Myra said...

What an undertaking! I admire your perserverance. I tried making a list on my blog but just couldn't keep up. Now I know where to come when I feel like surfing blogs. :o) Happy Halloween!

Shari said...

wow, you were busy!!!!! congrats on getting it done!!!! What an accomplishment!!! I see mine & I saw your comment on mine!!!

Jackie said...

I see mine!

I think you're like me in that when I get a bit behind on reading blogs, I don't like to not read them. Blogs always inspire me and I don't want to miss out!

Jan said...

I love the kitty picture! Now, just one thing ARE YOU INSANE!!!! I can't imagine going through that many blogs. You are a strong woman. Happy Halloween!

Deb said...

My blog is there! But you have to be nuts!!! I though I had a lot of blogs to read through (of which I've been doing a poor job of it). But I'm trying to get better. Just how long did that take you???

Happy Halloween!!

Dee said...

Mine is there and works just fine. Oh golly you must be tired! :-)

Happy Halloween!

CalamityJr said...

Now I know just where to go when I want to read blogs I'm not following! You've made a terrific "master list"! I only hope your hand doesn't ache to badly to keep stitching :-)

Karan said...

That's an awful lot of clicking... give yourself a medal for persevering. Cute pic. :0)

Lisa S said...

Holy cow Sharon!! That's a lot of blog reading!!
I see mine on the side.
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the sweet comments you leave :)

Raggedy Ann said...

You amaze me!!!
How can you have checked in on all those blogs?! Thank you for visiting my blog. You are an awesome friend. I wish you a wonderful day!

Silverlotus said...

Wow! I only visit about 65 or so, and I have a hard time keeping up with them. Although, I think I might have to check out all the blogs you visit and add a few more to my list. There is nothing like the inspiration you get from fellow stitchers.

Annie said...

That was a boatload of work! But now that you are down to a manageable 510, it should be easy to keep up! ;-)

Bev said...

how do you manage to stitch with keeping up all of them blogs wow!

staci said...

Wow! Now that's a lot of work! I've actually been weeding blogs out of my google reader because I had over 700 (most I didn't comment on, just peeked at) but it was becoming overwhelming and was preventing me from commenting on my "regular" ones :)

How do you keep up with them all?

Faye said...

WOW.... I need to figure out how to do that!!!....Yes, I see my blog listed and I KNOW your hands are tired.....Thats a ton of blogs!!!

Pumpkin said...

ROFL!!!!

WHAT! I can't believe you had the time to visit that many Blogs! I do well with the 90 some that I have ;o)

Lisa V said...

Gee Sharon you are "daffy", mad woman. I'm sure you would have a serious case of numb butt too!

Clarkey said...

Thank you for having me in your list. Yesterday my cat was just as bad as the one in the picture (lol). But when I finished and went to pet her...she left the room. :}

Farm Girl said...

Hi there - that is a huge job you have completed - Scary! How do you ever keep up with them all? Love your pic, so very cute.

Brigitte said...

Oh, oh, oh, your fingers must have hurt a lot - 600 blogs is defintely a lot. But this reminds me of the fact that I haven't updated my blog for quite a while, just because there was no stitching for weeks and months. But I have found my needle again and have been stitching the last two weeks or so.

Carolyn NC said...

I'm totally impressed! I'm in your list, but when I click on it, it goes to the profile page, and not the blog (though you can get to it). Of course I haven't updated in a month!! Slow blogging in my house- but everything else is at the speed of light LOL.
What an adorable picture, BTW!

Jane said...

How adorable is this photo?! (I'm a sucker for cute cats)

I can't believe you visited THAT many blogs! Time to cull them down, girl - keep going. (thanks for leaving mine in though) ~~ ;)

Kat said...

I don't see mine there - I'd love for you to list it! I only have 18 followers! *sniff*

Thanks!

I love reading your blog... good luck on keeping up with everyone else's!

Kathy said...

I can't even imagine reading that many blog entries. I'm on your list.
That picture is just too cute.

Doris said...

is a lot of work! :D. oh,i like the cat photo in the keyboard, look so cute.

Jessica @BeforeTheDawn said...

Aw I see my blog in your list!

I use Google Reader and don't have all the blogs in my blog roll on my actual blog. There's too many! I might make a page of blog links on my blog, but I haven't taken the time yet. I'm behind in my reading again anyway, 800 posts are waiting. I been busy with non-computer stuff and they piled up on me.

I'm going to have to check out the blogs in your list... I love cross stitch blogs and would love a few more to follow.

Ranae said...

The blog post sure add up fast don't they?? It's hard to keep up

Chrizette @ All the days of said...

Hi there - wow 600 blogs huh! You are a brave girl. I was MIA from stitching for a bit but I am back, so hopefully I will be posting some updates soon.

Have a great weekend.
