I’m giving up on Feedly. Its already hard to comment when I check blogs on my phone, but with the new Feedly app, I can’t even comment. It literally will not let me open the comment box. And then I hate how when you click on a link like I used to be able to in Reader, it holds everything in the Feedly app and I can still never comment. Its like its holding everyone’s blog addresses hostage.
Does anyone else have this problem? Of course, if you do, you’ll be unable to comment and tell me so, so I’ll just take the resounding lack of comments as a tidal wave of agreement. So I will be deleting it and transferring everything over to wordpress, which I probably should have done initially.
In general, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to use my mobile phone for casual email and internet a lot less. Yes, this article (and its faults) helped affirm that. As well as this one from a while back. A toddler who literally jumps on the computer means I can’t get on the internet if he’s awake, but hey, I’m looking for quality not quantity. And I’ve had enough of this “Oh I can’t comment because I’m on my phone” excuse. I’m bugging myself with that one.
I’ve thought about the problem of having the internet being so handy is the root of this evil, but really, its not that. Its my own lack of patience and need for instant gratification. Yes, cut off your hand if it causes you to sin, but I feel very strongly that the advantages of having a handy internet are so great that I should really at least attempt at practicing some self control before I just go to those measures. The mobile map option really has saved my life in Los Angeles many a time. And now with an impending move, I know I will appreciate having access to maps in an unfamiliar area, let alone for the cross-country drive.
My phone has been on the fritz lately so, we will see what happens if it totally dies soon. Maybe my figurative hand will just cut itself off.
