in my inbox

a while back
 i chastized
 my friend mary 
for not reading my blog

 i dont have time for it
 she emailed

 whaaaa? 
i replied

 but
 if it was in my inbox
 i would be able to read it 
she responded

so
 i added
 via
 blogger's gadgets 
a way for anyone who wants 
to get/read my blog 
via
 email

its so easy

 well
 remember
 when i said
 how
 i had all that time to read at the office
 how quiet it was

 HA

 things here
 went
 from
 snooze to hyper
 in no time 
making
 it
 next to impossible
 to read or visit blogs

 so today during a quiet moment
 ok
 it was really 
during
 a conference call 
but 
no one knew 
i was multi tasking 

i visited 
all the blogs on my sidebar
 and 
signed up
 to all those who have email sign ups 
if you dont have 
the subscribe by email gadget
 you should
 it costs nothing
 it makes it easy
 for those who cant blog visit 
to read
 your blog
 and
 if time permits
 to 
click over 
to
 leave a comment

  anyway 
now you know
 if you 
dont
 see/hear
 from me
 why

 i apologize 
to all of you who i am not going to get to visit
 maybe
when
 life slows down
 i will be able to blog hop again
 but 
in the meantime 
consider 
adding that free gadget 

i bet i am not the only one who'll subscribe!

  1. Isn't that a great feature? Since my phone is with me even at work, I find that bloglovin' is also a good way (for me anyway) as it sends emails and I can click away from there. Think I will try your subscriber method. I do grow weary of "bloglovin'" in my inbox :)as you don't know who has posted until you open it up.. (I've always wondered if anyone subscribes to my blog-it's a snoozer for sure, but am curious is there a way to tell if anyone is subscribing??)

  3. I've had the email option on my blog for a long time and I'm always surprised by how many people opt for inbox reading.

  4. I've thought about it but at work and at home my email is a Niagra Falls that about drowns me. I might do it so that others can subscribe to my blog if they wish.

  5. I was wondering where you'd been!! :-)
    I have an email subscribe at the bottom of my page.
    For some reason, I've heard that only Blogger blogs update in your sidebar (if you have a Blogger blog), and looking at mine now in your sidebar, it has not updated in 2 months. :-(

  6. This is a great option for sure and very simple to install. I like to have my faves emailed to me, like yours, as even if I don't comment, I like to read the posts. I actually waited a while before I started commenting on blogs, not sure why. Glad you added this nice feature and hope your works slows down a hair (job security) :)

  7. That's a good idea. I thought maybe you were front row at Fashion Week and that was taking all your time :-)

  8. You know what? The strangest thing happened with that feature and WP yesterday. I'm basically really happy when someone comes along and reads my post and grateful that in the world of millions of websites they decided to spend their precious five minutes reading what I have to say and try not to check site stats and subscribers etc. But yesterday my followers number went down by about 50 followers. I've absolutely no idea what WP did just then but I did upgrade the site when an upgrade was announced. Tell you what though, it had an emotional effect on me and that's not good at all! I really shouldn't be allowing things like that to effect me emotionally.

  9. I'll still try to come the old-fashioned way.... :) Must say I don't know how to install it, but what I am reading above is that it's on the dashboard somewhere in the settings?
