April at Good Books and Good Wine wrote a fantastic post about doing whatever YOU want when blogging and not paying attention to those who try to tell you what to do. Your blog is your space to experiment, to be creative, to have fun and it's not going to work if you have to do what others tell you. Saying that, please, please, please don't use CAPTCHA-it's the worst!
End of Google Reader
This was so sad for me to read although its pending demise does explain why I've had some problems there. I have already switched over to feedly and am trying to navigate it; Jen Ryland recommended Bloglovin' which I am hoping to try out today. Unfortunately all this change left me feeling disengaged from my blogs so my commenting is way down. I'm so sorry because I know it is not the fault of any of you lovely bloggers. I am hoping my enthusiasm will return this week.
However I'm not sure how much commenting I will have time for this week because on Thursday, I'm having (elective) eye surgery! I'm so excited. I've worn glasses for 14 years but no more! The procedure is known as ICL and it's basically an implantable contact lenses. I liked it over LASIK because it doesn't change the shape of my eye. I'm not sure how I'll feel on Thursday but I'm supposed to feel better over the weekend so we'll see...I won't be online and I probably won't get much reading done but I can't wait to see myself without glasses.
