Still Not Part 2 of the Stream of Consciousness Blog

Last night, I decided to organize my Outlook mailbox a little better.  I knew I was behind reading blog posts of people I follow, but I wanted to get all the blogs notifications into one place so that I could start reading them

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that, since April 1, 2015, I was looking at almost 1200 posted blogs that I haven’t gotten around to reading yet.  Most of these are from bloggers I started following during Writing 101, although a number are from one very prolific poet that wasn’t in the class but that I started following several months back.  Or maybe there are numerous contributors to that site. Either way, receiving 10 or more posts a day from a single site is not exactly what I was looking for when I started following this person.  I love poetry, but that many posts a day just obliterate my computer and cloud mail space, and I’m going to have to cut it off.  That is not to say that I am stopping posts from the people I started following during the writing class.  There is some real class poetry coming from these people.  Thankfully, they tend not to post a dozen a day!

Anyway, if I haven’t gotten around to reading your posts for a while, it’s because I’m probably something like 400 or so behind.  It’s going to take some time to get to all of them.  I don’t like following posts that I don’t get a chance to read; and I don’t follow the writing or photos of people who I follow in order to not read them.  So please forgive me for not getting around to all of your work, please.  I’m just a bit overwhelmed in several areas right now, and don’t want a return bout of the health  problems of last fall from which I’m still recovering.

So this is just a short apology to all the people I follow and who may also be following me.  Hang in there. I’m working down the numbers!!

Keep on posting! I really enjoy your work!

Meanwhile, I’ll get to the stream of consciousness draft early this week. I promise.
