Making life easier

So I finally started using a feed reader yesterday. I don't know why I resisted it for so long, because it's so much easier than looking at live bookmarks and remembering the blog titles of the last post I read for everyone. In part, I suppose it was because now you won't be able to tell if I stopped by unless I leave a comment. Sometimes I just don't have anything to say. Anyway, I wanted to let you know I'm still reading and probably keeping up to date better... we'll see how it goes.

The other thought this whole thing triggered is doing things the hard way. Why is that my default mode so much of the time? I suppose there's some perceived gain to the hard way that makes it seem reasonable until the scale tips and suddenly it seems idiotic. And then there are the hard things that just seem difficult because of fear or anxiety. It's easier to think of them as hard so I can put them off. Taking charge of your life is something you've got to want to do.

  2. welcome to the 20th century....

  3. Sizz: yeah, I'm still working on it.

    Dan: or the 21st, but who's counting? ;)

  4. Well, I meant to suggest that an RSS reader is so yesterday...

  5. Wait... you just now started using a feed reader??? Where you been?

  6. I'm still resisting, though... I like lurking around and finding out for myself if anyone's added anything since I was last there. Ok, so I'm totally out of touch with modern life, but is that such a bad thing..?

  7. Dan: yeah, I got it.

    Kevin: I know... I've been using the live bookmarks in firefox. Part of it was not wanting yet another thing to log into, but google reader saves me that trouble...

    Scholiast: I totally understand. I like seeing other people's layouts, banners, and color choices too.
