If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Update on NCLM

We are halfway through NCLM. I'm happy to report that I've gotten into a groove and have not missed my quota for 11 days. In fact I even managed to go over a few times. However my chances of getting through the entire list in one month is slim to none.

I've been tracking new visits in my spreadsheet and I'm up to 38. Considering the list has 214 blogs (well 213, since I don't have to visit my own) that leaves 175 more that I would need to visit in the next 16 days. For the mathematically challenged that comes to 11 comments (I rounded up) a day. I haven't hit 11 once yet so I don't see it happening.

Here's the other problem. I'm finding too many blogs I really like. You guys are good and funny and thoughtful and interesting. I'm almost afraid to go forward. How many blogs can a bloglines hold?

I just was going through "the list" to catch up with the peeps and saw a blog I had not even noticed before. I'm sure it was there, and it has a very long title, so how the heck have I missed it in these 2 weeks? Going through again right now to make sure there aren't others I have missed. Might as well, I'm at work and have nothing else to do (haha)

hahaha! I feel the same way! I spend hours each day reading blogs. Knowing I should be doing something more "productive"...but there are so many interesting people, it's easy to get caught up!

My reader currently has 97 blogs. Wow. Can't believe I counted those.

Good for you on your progress!

There's no way I could forge through all of those blogs with only 24 hours in a day!

Hey thanks for the well wishes :)

I've found a lot of good new blogs through this as well. It's been a lot of fun.

I'm having the same problem!!! I'm glad that I joined NCLM and am finding all these cool new blogs though!

thanks brig! she is a sweetheart! the whole situation is pretty crappy-i dont even know where my son is right now. It's just a mess.

I hope you NEVER have to go through something like this. But if you did, you'd be pretty brave too. Look what you've done/been through so far.

NCLM has introduced me to some very cool people

You are cracking me up with your spreadsheets! Thanks for making me giggle.

I agree about all the amazing blogs. NCLM rocks! :)

I'm having the same problem: Too many awesome blogs out there! I've been keeping a log in my email of all the blogs, those I've read, and those I really like. I hate to see what my reader will look like after NaCom is over...I already have 70+ blogs on it.

I'm up to reading about 12 a day, and it takes hours!!! I don't know how many more blogs I can put on my reader, and I've got to get around to adding a bunch to my blogroll too!

I love it, but it certainly is exhausting - especially when I consider that there are still 14 more days to go!

Ack!
