As I mentioned before, it always takes me a very long time to become fully functional after I wake up. This is why, for example, I always get up at 6 am (in spite of being the opposite of a morning person) whenever I have to teach at 9:30. I have a routine all worked out that helps me get into a fully awake mode. I get up, have a cup of coffee, scroll down my blogroll to see what people have been blogging about. When I find a post title that sounds interesting, I follow the link, read it and often comment. (This is why people who don't give titles to their posts don't get many visits from me.)
For the last two days, though, Blogger has been acting up. I think that some changes are being introduced to it, and this always messes with Blogger's functionality. As a result, it's been informing me that my blogroll is empty and suggesting that I add some blogs that I'd like to follow. So now I have to use Google Reader to access the 235 blogs I follow. I don't like Google Reader much because many people place their entire (often extremely lengthy) posts in there instead of hiding everything but the first paragraph under the break. I'm sure they don't mean to be annoying and just simply don't know that this is something that needs to be done.
I just hope that Blogger goes back to normal soon. If you use Blogger, are you experiencing the same issues with the blogs you follow?
