Hey Guys - Rudy's Raiser here!

I have a quick question - how can you follow more than 300 blogs?
I just clicked to follow another blog today... and it said "I follow more than 300 blogs"
and to be able to follower more... I have to QUIT following some of you guys.

Any ideas??

Stop using Blogger to follow blogs. Honest. Go to Google Reader (you may already be using it to follow blogs), make sure you import all of your followed blogs from blogger (very easy to do), and then use Google Reader to add blogs from then on (top left corner of Google Reader has an add a blog button).

We imported to GR, and then deleted all of the blogs from blogger but they all remained at GR. We are well past 300 now and are unaware of a limit on GR.

Hope that helps. Email me if you need help.

Wow--300, really? I guess that's blogger's limit :)

I thought I followed too many at 80, but my number pales in comparison to yours....you need a dedicated blogger award!

Google Reader is really the way to go - it even saves a lot of time when you follow a lot of blogs (I am well over 300 too!)


Lola said...

No idea, to tell the truth. I only follow 85 and it's hard to keep up, even with Google Reader. And there area a few I know of that I plan to follow, but haven't started yet. That's why I haven't done any Blog Hops lately.

I know what you mean - I have 94 Followers and I feel compelled to visit every one of them because I want to be a good blogging buddy - besides, I really do enjoy reading everyone's posts, but it does end up taking a big part of my day - up to 1/2 day and I just can't do that anymore. I have a life to lead, so what I have decided to do is:

Post only once or twice a week and check with my friends on certain days because if I check every single day, I honestly don't have a life, except sit here in front of this darn computer.

Don't know if that helps, but I simply have to cut down my blogging time and hope that everyone understands.

Erin and GuidePupPompei said...

Yep I'm using Google Reader as well, as I have 463 blogs that I follow.. on that account I follow more on another account.

Maggie Mae said...

Do people really follow that many blogs? waw!

Oskar said...

I follow those who I have the best relationships with and who updates.

In both my mom person's blogs and my doggie blog, I check the blogs that I follow every couple of months and get rid of ones who have not posted recently and or the ones that don't leave comments on my blog.

I hope this helps,

Oskar & his mom person Pam

Oh golly, I have lost count, but I do use google reader to follow blogs. It is so much easier than blogger. That said, I often don't have time to visit all of my friends, but it is nice to know they are there.


Piappies World said...

Wow that's a lot of blogs! Yup, Google Reader would allow you to follow more. So do make use of it as well.

It is fun having friends and keeping updated.

Hiya Rudy and Raiser - we also list our pals on the sidebar but we know it's difficult to always noticably follow blogs, especially those amazing bloggers who seem to manage daily updates - wow! We try to leave a comment at least once a week (so we apologise for being very tardy with leaving messages for you of late!) and we hope our pals know that we are reading all their posts even if we're not commenting on them.

google reader :)

Since I have such a slow computer and dial-up service, I just can't follow as many as I'd like. There are several that I'd like to follow, but there just isn't enough time. I use Google Reader, sort of... what I mainly do is write down who is commenting on my blog and make sure that I get to their blogs to read and comment and then if I get extra time, I go back through and do some catchup on the others that I haven't heard from in some time.
