I only read 2 blogs with any regularity (meaning once every couple of weeks). By the time I read KH and glance at Ravelry I'm out of free time. Besides which knitting blogs just depress me b/c these people are churning out sweaters in a matter of days and I'm still on the same pair of socks I started last week and never mind my husbands scarf I started 2 yrs ago - okay a little exaggeration, I got the scarf done is 16months.

I have 57 listed in my Google Reader. Most are knitting but there are some fun ones like Bitchypoo (hilarious) and Pink is the New Blog (gossip). I use it to take a mental break from work when needed. I love looking at all of the patterns people are using. I get inspired and add them to my Ravelry queue.

I read quite alot of blogs. I find it interesting to read about what other people are thinking, doing, and creating. I guess I am just an internet peeping Tom!! Seriously, I love the Harlot, CRL, the Panopticon, Silver, and many others.. It really inspires me and reminds me that we are all human and even though this world seems so big, it isn't really. Moscow, Paris, Calcutta.. are all a click away.

One. All the others I've seen have been incredibly boring.

I use Bloglines to keep up with the ten or so that I'm subscribed to. Most people don't post daily, so it's easy to keep up with...a quick glance and I can tell if I want to continue reading the entire post.

As far as why people blog about their lives? For me, it's a release. When I talk, I don't get things out right sometimes, but I find that writing enables me to express myself the way I want. I've always figured that if nobody's interested, they won't read. I still feel good getting things off my chest, though.
