I'm discovering that I have an increasingly short attention span for excessively long blog posts. Which really bums me out, because often the message and the writing itself are so beautiful. I'm really sorry to all you folks out there writing these eloquent but verbose posts every day (of which I am occasionally guilty, so no finger pointing here). I love your writing and I am super impressed that you can coherently put it together day after day, but sometimes I have trouble reading the last few paragraphs because I can't keep focused. And to further complicate things, I discovered Google Reader a few weeks ago. Since then I have steadily been adding more and more blogs to my list because I just keep finding so many people that are great and I don't want to miss out on anything and Reader makes it so easy. I kept up with it pretty well until the last few days, when I have had some real life stuff (what, real life? pshaw) going on and not nearly the time to spend in Bloggyland and my Reader is starting to fill up. Plus, Blogher ended, so all these folks who weren't posting as much for a week or so while they were away (and, not coincidentally, when I added them), are now back to their regularly schedule programming and I'm in too deep.
So here's my request: give me a short post here and there. I don't want to cramp your style, but I need some blog snacks sometimes. It can't all be seven course blog dinners. Or maybe it can, but then I'd have to seriously cut back on the number of blogs I read and I don't want to do that because I LOVE hearing about all of your lives.
