Blogging routine.

Do you have a blogging routine? I do.
Every morning, I log in then go the the "Blogs I Visit" list and start visiting them, in alphabetical order. I leave comments on their new posts. In Allison's case, I follow all her links to all the different contests, blog candy, challenges etc...that she posts (her blog I visit several times a day!)I take part in sketch challenges.If I've missed a couple of posts, I will scroll down and comment on those posts as well.
If someone has not updated in a month, I will take them off my list (except Thanh's, because she's too busy "looking for a carreer" to blog! I'll give her a couple more weeks, then that's it! You hear me, Thanh? LOL!). Likewise, if someone "new" visits my blog and comments, I will follow the link to their blog and comment as well, and perhaps even add them to my list!
Once I've completed a sketch challenge, I upload it, then link it to the original poster.
I usually follow this same routine in the afternoon also. What do you guys do?

I have my Google Reader open all day long (it is in my kitchen so I can get real life done too!). I do a major post in the morning of all my finds, update it periodically when time allows and then get down to my own craftiness at night!

I leave my Google Reader open most of the day when I'm home, but I am trying to save my major browsing for morning and evenings or I don't get anything done!

OK, so what is a "google browser" and why don't I have one? LOL!

I don't really have a set routine - I always have my Reader up (now that I've figured out it's so cool!) :-) and when I get a chance I look at the new posts. Sometimes I only have a limited time to peek at blogs, so I don't leave as many comments as I would like! I appreciate them so much on my own blog, I need to be better about "returning the love". :-) Oh and now that I know how easy it is to add people to my Reader with a click of the button, I've been adding more awesome blogs all the time! (so many awesome blogs, so little time... *sigh*...) :-)

On a good day, where I have time to spend on the internet, I go through my list of blogs that I visit everyday, such as family. Every couple of days or so, I try and hit all the other ones that I stalk. I love blogs! ...and I love your blog Michelle.

My computer is in the main traffic area in my house and I usually keep my google reader open. I like to check into blogs in the morning and in the evenings. If life slows down some throughout the day I might check some then also.
