How Many Blogs Do You Read?

I currently subscribe to 99 blogs, most of them are about running, dogs and makeup/perfume (yes there are several blogs entirely devoted to perfume....I know, I was shocked too! But now I'm just addicted). I was just curious to see how many you guys all read.

Perfume blogs? Hadn't thought of that!

I had 189 in my reader, but this was the kick I needed to purge some out - now it's at 150, and could probably go fewer. Most of them are running blogs, but I follow a bunch of 'photo of the day' blogs, which don't have much reading :)

kilax said...

My count is at 554, but a lot are in folders that I just "mark as read." I need to purge!

D10 said...

Too many!!! But I love reading them.

lindsay said...

ohh man. according to my google reader i have 694!! holy cow.

ok, some of those are news or finance thingies, but the majority of them are runner blogs. a few of them are random blog-related things and after getting engaged a couple months ago i added a few wedding blog-thingies as well.

sometimes i "mark all as read" for the news/finance sections but i always read the running ones! ...so basically i have no life. my free time is consumed by running and reading about it. haha.

HEATHER said...

ack! 161!! i had no idea it was that many, LOL! But I agree with RunningLaur, I need to purge. Some of them haven't posted in months...

Amy said...

I read about 55 blogs. I had no idea people read more than 100!! Wow! I barely have time for 55. I read about 7 a day, I guess. Sometimes I read but don't comment, even though Ifeel bad.

I thought I'd be at the top with 138, but it appears not. Mine are mostly running, but a few are personal friends, a few are still from infertility days, and a few are cooking ones. Sadly, I don't even follow my husband's blog ('cause I find the topic boring LOL).

kristen said...

Perfume. Wow. 99 is alot. I only read about 40, but some of them don't post very often. They are all primarily about running, but I do like the extras people write about.

Dang, Lindsay is the winner!

694?!

I have 126.

Aka Alice said...

I have 95 in my reader, but I'd say I read about half that regularly.

Definitely got me thinking.

Brandi said...

I'm not sure how many I read but quite a few!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a little behind due to being busy at work but do check back! :)

N.D. said...

Answer: too many. I go back and forth putting ones in my must read category and changing things up.

Ali said...

I was reading everyones comments thinking you gotta be kidding, 100 blogs. I thought I was under 30, then I counted, 86 ... wow. Most are running and nutrition.

Marlene said...

I think I have almost 200 in my reader, but I also need to purge a few...

Carolina John said...

i've got about 45 that update regularly, and maybe 20 more that don't post very often. i only use the blog roll in the left nav of my blog to keep up with it. that way if someone posts twice between the times i get to read blogs i don't know or feel guilty about missing a post.

Shannon said...

I think I'm following somewhere around 50-60 blogs!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

I have about 80 blogs that i follow, running/triathlon stuff, but some of those don't post regularly. really, perfume? LOL

I've gotten so much motivation out of blogs though, so even if i fall behind on reading, i love catching up

Alisa said...

I have about 100. I get overwhelmed if I take a few days off from reading them. When that happens I have to skim stuff. I have a core 20-25 or so that I read and comment on. I recently added a few cooking blogs, I'm loving getting recipe ideas from others.

Jeri said...

I just purged a bunch of mine, so now I'm down to 80-ish.

Lacey Nicole said...

99?!?! holy moly! on my blogroll i have: 43, but at least 4 or 5 don't update. non blog roll blogs i read-- 5 or 6?

SDrunner said...

Don't even want to say, it will only top out at 30-40 and that's being very very generous! I can't really say that there aren't enough blogs to read, bc there definitely are..

Morgan said...

Perfume blogs?!?!? Really??!?! But you can't even smell them so how essentially do they work? LOL!

I subscribe to over 70 something blogs, almost all are running with a sprinkling of food blogs, one surf blog and one hilarious blog about whatever this chick decides to spill her guts about each post.

Thanks for stopping by my digs!

lindsay said...

dang it! i went through and deleted ones that hadn't been updated in awhile/that i don't really read and i still have 540. grr. at least you motivated me to begin the purge :)
