11, 601 emails in my Inbox. Some are SPAM. Some are from friends. A few are updates on items I've ordered online. Most are from blogs. I always click to have new comments sent to my email. I like to see when people reply to my comments and I don't want to miss any comments people leave on my blog.
Sometimes I stalk your comments. I follow the link to the commenter's own blog and leave a few of my own. I could spend hours doing this. Half the fun of blogging is reading and commenting on everyone else's posts. Sometimes they return the visit or even become a new follower. Am I the only one who gets excited every time that number increases by one or two? I probably found 90% of my followers this way (or helped them find me).
So, I've been spending some time today trying to clean up my inbox. The problem is, every time that I leave a comment and click that subscribe box, I generate more emails. Now I've got 11, 650 emails in my inbox. Maybe it's time to set up a separate account for blogging...
