Hey Google Reader

Update: I didn't get to get totally caught up on the blog reading so there should have been easily 100+ in my Google Reader this morning. But when I logged in this morning, only 44 were showing. URG! I know there are many more but I don't remember who all of the blog were. I need to find a new better reader quickly or I'm going to go ballastic on someone soon. Anyone have a good suggestion, I'm all ears!

What gives? You are making me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You see, I check in at my Google Reader account every single day, at least once, most days more. I love being able to streamline my blog reading. And I love to know that I've gotten caught up when things get hectic.

So what did I find today (yet again) when I logged in? 275 unread posts! Yup, you read that right. And I was just catching up last night, went to bed with only less than 20 left. How in the world do hundreds of new posts magically appear literally overnight?

They don't. Obviously there is something seriously wrong with Google Reader in the way that new posts show up. And this is really pissing me off. I'm missing giveaway opportunities here people! I'm missing exciting announcements. I'm missing out on fantastic sales. And I'm missing out on a whole lot of fun. Finding out about missed goodies weeks late really sucks. This has happened before and I'm just fed up with it, enough so that I'm writing this post.

Do any of you have any clue as to what is going on? I log out of Google Reader daily, I log out of the Internet entirely daily, we reboot the computer frequently enough. There is just no rhyme or reason that I can find for this to continue happening. Somebody please help if you know the cure.

That is my rant for the day. More happy stuff to come. Promise. And now at least you know....if I'm not commenting on your blog post, it may just be because I didn't know you wrote it in the first place.

LOL, all I can say is while I haven't had the exact same problems with my does give me back blogs I have unsubscribed from and upon occasion it presumes that I didn't read well enough the first time and gives me back all of the posts from an undetermined amount of time...even if I DID read them. It also presumes that a few of the blogs I read need a post or two to be in multiples (2, 3, 8, whatever, LOL). Not all the same blogs, nor the same amount...More than once it will show me a post and I will click to read it and be told it doesn't exist (or has not been published yet)...So, if you find a more consistent reader I would LOVE to know what it is!
