How Much Time Do You Spend Reading Blogs?

By: Gini Dietrich | January 27, 2011 |

It’s the Arment Dietrich Facebook question of the week time and this week’s question comes from Elizabeth Shelby. Elizabeth is a student at NYU, but is from Houston. All that snow is probably killing her right now (and I’m insanely jealous)!

She asks, “I have a question for your weekly Spin Sucks video post. How do you (Gini, or any of your staff) manage the amount of time you spend reading new blog posts, catching up on Twitter feeds, reading news stories, etc.? As a student, it’s hard for me to find time to be both productive and good at my work AND be aware of what’s happening in the blogosophere each day. I’m sure the same goes for you as a PR professional with your own clients whose needs must be met each day. Any tips?”

My answer is in the video below (or by clicking here). What are your tips for Elizabeth?

Don’t forget…if you have a question or want to pick my brain, go to our Facebook wall and ask it there!

First things first. I love your hair Gini – it looks awesome! And the makeup artist in me has to tell you I love your lip gloss too, very nice! Now back to business. I spend about an hour every morning reading blogs, tweeting, updating statuses etc. I usually get up at 5am to do this (before the kids wake up). After I get to work I tweet, post, etc. whenever I get a free moment. For me it’s easy to loose 2 + hours a day to the online world so I really have to limit myself. Great video… Read more »

@SamanthaCollier OMG! That lipgloss is from Victoria’s Secret. My sister-in-law gave it to me for Christmas. It tastes good, too! And thanks on the hair. It’s totally lazy, so I don’t leave it like this often.

That’s me too. I get up at 5 and write and read. Then go to work around 8:30. How do we do all of this without getting up that early?

@Beamena I have Duckie – he’s cute as hell, white and fluffy, amazing listener, doesn’t move around when he sleeps. Unfortunately, ever since he met the washing machine a few years back – he doesn’t quack anymore :(. Do you have a girl friend for him please? lol Thanks

@Griddy @ginidietrich http://www.nittygriddynotes.com is available as an aside. If there were about 4 more hours in each day, I would have found my new hobby (but it seems all these drive-bys would put an end to said hobby), but alas, the rotation of the earth is not about to change. Shucks.

I don’t have a stuffed animal so my relevance in this conversation has come to its end. Ciao.

@Griddy @ginidietrich Holy Moses, Ingrid. That’s a lot of comments right in a row. You’re might a comment Uzi.

I had a sock monkey when I was a kid as well, but I don’t think he had a name, oh well. I just wanted to stop by and comment on all of Ingrid’s comments.

Great video , Gini!
