The other night I was laying in bed and couldn’t sleep. This is common; I get too excited about the next day to do something as mundane as sleep. As usual, I sneaked out of bed to get my phone and see what you guys are up to. I subscribe to all blogs via email, that way I can easily scroll to where I left off or delete posts that don’t look right for me. Not to make it weird (it’s weird), but we’ve all been in my bed together. I know that Alicia often posts her Friday 56 on Thursday nights. I know that if I’m up past midnight, I’ll be the first to like and comment on Pages Unbound, which is uncommon (so many people love it there!). I know that Jen reads really fast, and if I get behind, I’ll be commenting on several posts in one night. These are the times I have my phone on the lowest brightness level so I don’t wake my husband and I type out each comment at a sluggish pace.
Then there’s the bathtub. Does anyone else blog in the bath? I guess this means we’ve all enjoyed a splish-splash together, but it’s not weird, right? The funny thing about the bathtub is I always take a book and my phone. The phone is there so I can check the time (I’m mega blind without my glasses), but I always end up wondering what you guys are up to. Has Fiction Fan read anything that scared the porpentine lately? Did Anne make a video review, because if she has the bathtub is the best place to listen to it! I can’t do audio reviews in public. Does Amal have something to add to the legal craziness in the United States that’s scaring me right now? Did Jackie finally fix her blog? Is Ami going to leave California and move to Colorado?? Is Bill going to get back together with his ex, because I think that might be a thing?!
And I wonder why I only post one review per week.
I almost forgot to mention that I talk to you. Remember how I said I type comments at a sluggish pace? Most of my comments are written by the talk-to-text function. My neighbors may overhear me enunciating to Karen, “Don’t feel bad you hadn’t heard about the praised novel no read SEMICOLON I speak for all Americans when I say we haven’t read it either PERIOD I would throw David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest into the pot of books no one really read PERIOD.” Then I find out talk-to-text doesn’t know what a semicolon is and have to delete the word “semicolon” and add the punctuation in. You wonder why my comments are long? I’m talking at ya.
What does it look like when you’re blog hopping? Where are you, what time is it, what device or method do you use to comment?
Do you get caught up in bloggers’ personal lives like I do?
