You always have a choice. No food has the power to make you eat it, and no one else determines your values or priorities. Sure, the situation may be difficult; sometimes you may have to choose between less than ideal options, or even pick the lesser of two evils. But the choice is always yours, and the only way to fail in the long run is to fail to choose.
I think it was three or four yesterday. No new ones today.
Now that I can see things on my FriendFeed, I usually notice when someone has a new blog post, and I've been managing to read most of them and leave a comment if I've got one (and I usually do). [Not long ago, I was linked to someone who said Good Morning to two-thirds of the population of SparkPeople, so I rarely had anything useful on my FriendFeed.]
Most of those people whose blogs I read are on this team, but there are others that I'm SP friends with.
I deliberately choose not to have lots of SP friends -- some people link to everyone and use SP like FaceBook. I prefer to have a small number of SP Friends because I feel that on SP it's a responsibility -- people should know who their friends are, what they're doing, and if they need input from you for motivation. You can't do that well with lots and lots of SparkFriends.
So, I may not comment on a lot of blogs every day, but when I do I'd like to think that my comments are worthwhile for both me and the blogger.
