26 May: Some light reading.


Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.

If I were to be honest, I would just leave this post blank because about the only things I read online anymore are FB status updates/links shared via FB and blogs that I've subscribed to.  I don't even regularly go to Youtube, Gentle Readers...  I know, I know.. shun me now.

I used to start off each morning by reading "my" webcomics.  Questionable Content, Two Lumps, Real Life, Something Positive, A Softer World, XKCD, Looking for Group, Punch and Pie...  And then I'd move on to Reader.  I've never been one to peruse the daily news sites (since the news is utterly depressing every.single.day.ever.and.always.), I wasn't into reading blogs until I started writing my own, and I wasn't so into WoW that I'd read the guides unless I absolutely was stuck on something.

As time went on, I had less and less time to check my sites each day.  Then I went to GTMO where all my sites wouldn't load at the same time (convenience is key, apparently) due to the internet slowness.  Then in Bahrain, some of the pages were blocked... I pretty much gave it up.  I went and checked the comics every now and then, but eventually just lost track of the story lines and gave up.

Sometimes I think about how I could go digging in the archives of the comics I miss and get caught up, and I think of the blog I should write or the season 9 finale of Grey's I still haven't watched.  I realize that this must be growing up.

  1. I don't think you have to go to the news sites to read things of importance. When you see something on facebook, often there's a link you can go read the news pertaining to that. I've never been into comics, not even when I was kid and it was the rage. It's important to have some idea of what's going on in the world, if only to participate in discussions at work or parties

    1. I prefer to be blissfully ignorant. Saves me from those heated discussions with people in public. Often, if I am interested in whatever is going on, I will try to find information on sites that have as little bias as possible and then usually keep my opinion to myself. The only folks who get to hear my opinions frequently are Gentle Readers and close friends, subject dependent.

      Obviously, I've never been a good interwebz troll.

  2. Yeah I can't stand the news. My parents are always watching it, we stayed with them a few weeks ago and I seriously just knocked out and went to bed because I wanted to harm myself after 2 solid hours of news coverage. Too depressing...plus the really big stuff will be shared on FB/Twitter so why worry?
