Reader backlog & a blogging resolution

A two-week hiatus from my computer (I did not even turn on my lap top over break) means I am now digging out from my Google reader backlog; there were 1000+ feeds collected. It's taken me half an hour to weed it down to 567, now I need to go back through and find things I need to actually read, mostly job openings and library specific blog notes.

Looking back through my statcounter statistics and blog post numbers for the last three years, both have lagged significantly; actually, combined posts in 2009 and 2010 (123) don't equal the output for 2008 (169). There are a number of reasons for this lag, the most significant being an increase in my online teaching load and technology responsibilities in the library resulting in less time reading children's literature and blogging for pleasure. I hope to have both of those things under control for the upcoming spring term. Time will tell.

Happy New Year!
