Continuing my “Week Of Zen” I encourage you to follow my instructions.

Did you do it? Did ya? Sigh. Here’s you second chance….
Are you back? So soon? You mean you didn’t finish?
To be honest, I didn’t either. But it’s cool, huh? Makes you think.
Why’s it difficult to sit still for two minutes and just be?
I’ve been feeling God’s gentle beckon for me to “unplug.” I can’t seem to argue with Him when I find myself reading about a stranger’s bowl of oatmeal (again) or the new shirt they bought. My eyes start to glaze over. I scroll. Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.
It’s Blog Fog.
Think of all the blog posts you’ve taken two minutes of your time to read. Now ask yourself…”Why?”
Would your time be better spent staring at the waves? Relaxing?
I encourage you to take a grand inventory of the blogs you read. Examine what you like about them. Ask yourself “Why am I reading this?”
Keep reading the blogs you enjoy. The rest of them? Hit the unsubscribe button. There’s no shame in it.
Edited to add- I actually cleared my Google Reader some time ago. Incredibly liberating.
If I read your blog and you write about oatmeal or t-shirts it’s because I love you and your blog no matter what you write about. I just had a bunch of blogs in my Reader that I never commented on, never got a real “feel” for the writer and I would find myself skimming their blogs after I read all my favorites (i.e. yours). That’s what I mean by blog fog. I recognized in hindsight this could come across negatively and that is NOT my intention.
