My aggregator is empty. Things are quiet on the Internet and I’ve finally clicked and scanned through every one of the 230+ blogs in my Bloglines account.
But no, that’s not true. I opened The Dilbert Blog in a new tab for further reading because Scott Adams always seems to have something that will catch my attention and imagination.
That’s the dilemma I face. Many blogs have only one or two posts before I get to read them. Usually I can scan through them quickly. On an (almost?) daily basis Scott writes long lengthy essays on everything from free will, to religion, to the war in Iraq and to hypnotism that I find irresistible so I always skip “The Dilbert Blog” because I know I’ll be sucked in and spend the next several minutes reading and wanting to blog about at least one of his articles. Scott’s posts are gone once I click on another blog, but the rest of them are crying out for attention too! What is one to do?
I put the Online Photographer in that category as well.
A good blog, like a good book, is something you can get lost in and forget yourself in. It tickles your brain cells and gets you thinking. What blogs do you put off reading until you have quality time to really enjoy them? What are the blogs you know you can’t read by skimming over them?

I wonder if you’re listening to any Christmas podcasts. I’ve downloaded several and have listened to them like a kid listens to the same old fairy tale being read again and again. There’s some really good (and free) audible stuff out there that often extends from blogs many of us fail to find in our walkabouts in cyberspace.
I would have to say Somewhere On The Masthead (http://masthead.blogspot.com/). Not only to I have to leave aside time to read the current posting, I also have to allow for all the meanderings through his archives that I do. It’s addictive.
