addicted to RSS August 2, 2007

I am addicted to my RSS reader and blogs.

Normal Day: wake up, get ready for work, drive to work, get to work, READ BLOGS on my RSS READER, work, READ BLOGS, eat lunch, READ BLOGS…etc. It keeps going and going.

Maybe its the fact that I am used to multitasking. Maybe I am just a procrastinator. Maybe I dont like to feel left out. Whatever the reason, I am constantly compelled to read the blogs, look for new blogs, and stay caught up. It’s fun and it’s a challenge. And I am constantly learning new stuff. [YET, I must say that I am still productive in my life – work and personal. It is not an addiction that consumes my life (only jumps into my “on-the-computer” time). In case if you were wondering.]

But I find it funny. I’ll go to a website, and if it only even slightly resembles a blog, i try to subscribe (well, that is, if i like the site).

So what I am wondering, is — is the use of RSS readers growing? I know for a while I had read that they were not catching on as some had thought.

Also I am wondering, is anyone else doing this? Or to some degree? Are you excited to see what’s newly posted and to learn more? And to have all of that at your fingertips?

Just wondering. I have noticed the growing trend in myself. Sometimes I go with the curve and other times, against.

As the amount of information grows each day, it is nice to have tools that keep making it easier to access the info. I never thought I would use RSS feeds like I use them today. Now, my daily schedule is similar to the one you described. I’m not sure if they are catching on but they have for me. It seems like every site out there has an RSS feed you can subscribe to. I’m very selective of which informational sites I frequently visit. However, when I find a new one, it is nice to have it at my fingertips!
