Well, I’m afraid that I have to head off to bed — I’m exhausted! Cheerleading today was really a lot of fun; however, I did not start on my midterm at all — partly from blog hopping and partly from taking the entire day to visit a friend in Rockford, IL and make pies.
Anyway, I made a good faith effort to visit and comment on every blog that was listed on the Mr. Linky at the main Read-a-Thon page. I couldn’t comment on blogs that didn’t allow anonymous comments, and there were some that had no Read-a-Thon posts near the top, so I didn’t know if they were still participating, so I didn’t comment. In any case, I feel good that I made it to as many as I did, and hope no one was offended at the seemingly cookie-cutter nature of my comments.
As a result of all my blog hopping I added a few more blogs to Google Reader, and I hope that I was able to cheer people up if they were feeling isolated or out of the loop. Tomorrow, I also plan on responding to all the comments people left on my blog during the Read-a-Thon.
One suggestion for next year — bloggers should ease up their security settings for the day. A lot of blogs don’t allow anonymous comments (Blogger, mostly), so that left me out from commenting. It also takes a lot of time to fill in the security stuff (identify the letters sort of thing). It might make commenting more efficient if people don’t have to do that all the time.
Anyway, goodnight blog friends, and good luck to those of you awesome enough to stay up tonight reading!
