I *heart* Blogs

OMG…. LOL…. U R GR8!! I figured after an opening like that, a picture of Justin Beiber was the only thing that was appropriate. His eyes are so dreamy…it is like he has lived twice his age of what – 11?

I was asked by Jeff the other day (whose blog you should really check out) where my blog list was. I’m assuming he meant one of those little blog rolls on the right side that lists out the blogs that I follow. Yeahhh, I guess I don’t have one of those. The reason? I’m too lazy to update it. It certainly isn’t because each of the blogs that I read aren’t worth putting up there.

Honestly, I just really like to stalk other people read what everyone else has going on in their lives. In fact, at last count, I read far too many blogs for me to ever admit to my wife. And, isn’t that the real measure of obsession? It is JUST bad enough that I hide it from a few of my friends. Don’t judge me (while I drink alone in the hotel room catching up on the latest goings on of my runner friends).

I think that it is probably worth noting that I actually DO read each of the blogs all the way through. I really try to avoid doing what I normally do when I read books – just look at the pictures. I figure that if someone put the time to put something together, then it is probably worth my time to read it. Besides, just like every time I read a Curious George book, I may even learn something. Is there anything that little monkey WON’T do!!??

It got me thinking about what makes a good blog. Pictures? Funny stories? Relevant / topical? The answer is probably one thing. ME. Having me in it makes it a good blog. A interesting author that tells a good story. So, thanks to all the authors of the various blogs that I read. You guys keep me going.

Did a solid 4 miles on the treadmill this morning at a nice easy recovery pace of 9:15. Because of the F’ing monsoon here in California, the treadmills at the hotel were all way full so I had to wait nearly 10 minutes to get on one. The run felt good and I only have some slight stiffness near my ITB.

Hey now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking alone in a hotel room and stalking people via their blogs. Nothing.

Mike Russell said...

Now you and my son have something in common -- you are both Curious George lovers. Who knew!

Morgan said...

I'm right there with you... I follow an embaressing amount of blogs and read every.single.one.of.them. Which means I spend an embaressing amount of time reading them. Pretty soon I won't have time to post because I'm too busy reading blogs. FML.

Razz said...

Soft core usually lures me to people's blogs.

Just sayin......

Molly said...

I read so many blogs that I think my husband is about to have an intervention....

The Sean said...

nevermind... thought this might have something to do with me...

ShutUpandRun said...

I just like to read blogs that are titled "I am boring."

Kelly said...

Well, you are a good person. Because I will admit flat out that I scan blogs based on the title of their post and whether I think I would be interested (What? I'm a very busy girl!) So that's a tip from now on when you're titling your posts!

Pat said...

you got the followers on the right. That's almost like a blog list.

I think what we need is an adam/pat/jeff/demi+others group run or race some weekend?

Rio said...

LOL. I caught my daughter watching Justin Beiber on You Tube last week. They *puffy heart* his song. I read more blogs than what's on my blog list too. Try to stay dry in CA!

GeorgiaSnail said...

Dude! You know Justin Blei...wait I need to go look up how to spell his nameBeiber!!! OMG OMG...

Who the hell is Justin Beiber?

Michelle said...

I *Heart* Your Blog!!!!

You are so boring!!!!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

Ya, I follow a lot too, but without gadgets to get me started and the blogosphere to keep me going, I likely wouldn't be doing what I am!

Nat said...

I like the new look! Great job on your race - are you going back to Fargo this year?

Ahhh Adam. Stuck in the hotel room of life with your bottle, your laptop, and your little monkey. Are your parents proud or what?

Your Wife said...

Honey, what would you do if you were at home all week and couldn't spend endless hours reading blogs? Enjoy it while you can!

The Laminator said...

Yeah, well, I think funny and sexy pictures draw people in! You should get working on incorporating more of those into your blog!

inspiREDtorun13 said...

I actually was just thinking how you seem to take the time to read both of my blogs. And wow, you even said yourself you aren't a skimmer!

Your posts always make me laugh. I'm not sure how I originally stumbled upon this blog, but like I've said before it's the perfect combination of "I'm a hardcore runner" and "Don't take life too seriously."

Christy said...

haha. I will never admit to my husband the insane amount of blogs I read/stalk. Every time he sees me on the computer he says, "There she is again. That blog sees your more than I see you." He lies.
Sort of.

Thanks for reading my blog and leaving comments. I *heart* them. Your blog is one I have to check everyday. Funny. Insightful. But also real.

Great to build your own module but why not collaborate on existing module that aim to provide the same features or functionality you're looking for: http://fairfieldinnakron.com/rooms-and-packages.php

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
