Things I Want to Read & Do Now & Later


I have had just about no time to read blogs in the last month.  It's crazy that after years and years of running my own blog and religiously reading all of my favorite blogs daily, I've come to a point where I just barely have time to read other people's blogs anymore.  I wish it were as simple as giving myself a set amount of time every morning to read them but unfortunately I've already done the same with so many work related tasks.  I just don't have the time these days to choose between blog scanning or getting important work done, blog scanning or taking precious time to invest in my personal life.
I am trying to at least take a morning every few weeks to browse all of my favorite blogs to collect articles I really want to read when I have the time.  And when something really sparks my interest, I do take that sacred time to read it all the way through, soaking up every word.  Wouldn't it be amazing if every blog post felt that way?

Here is my current I read it & loved it or I scanned it and I really want to read it later list.
