I have a long list of blogs/websites (233 feeds at this moment) to read in my Bloglines account. I don't have the time to read all of them nowadays (I used to), so I'm finding myself skimming through a select few blogs. Weirdly, even though bloggers like Scoble make very interesting posts, I tend to not read them because he's just too damn prolific and I don't have the time to read all the posts. Hmm... Interesting... I was just about to check whether there was a way to keep a post unread in Bloglines and there is (there's a "Keep New" checkbox at the bottom of every feed item). Well, maybe this will get me reading Scoble again.
As I was saying, I don't read every feed I subscribe to nowadays. (By the way, Bloglines only keeps 200 entries per feed before it stops keeping track of new ones.) What I do now is go through the list from top to bottom and check out the ones that I seem to be more interested in. It's interesting to see a pattern. I tend to give feeds with too many unread items a miss, resulting in a vicious cycle of them never getting read. Feeds with 30 new items a day, these I also tend to not read. I also read too many Mozilla-related blogs. Here's my list of "To Read" blogs (arranged in no particular order) whenever I'm short on time or just too plain lazy to read everything:
Jon Hicks' hicksdesign
One of my favorite designers who also happens to be a mean programmer (at least from what I can tell from Jon's hacking of Textpattern, which powers his blog and portfolio).
Mozilla blogger and Firefox GrayModern Theme author
Chris Pederick is the author of the Web Developer Tools Firefox extension, among other cool projects.
Which I contribute to, but I'm on hiatus now.
Lots of neat posts and links on technology
Gentoo Linux News
Not a blog, but I love Gentoo!
I think Gravatars are pretty sweet, this keeps me in the loop of what Tom Werner's up to.
Life At Ngee Ann
This is a fellow Singaporean's blog, quite humorous. "Ngee Ann" refers to Ngee Ann polytechnic, a local academic institution.
life in mono
Fellow Singaporean Adrianna's a cool techie Mac evangelist.
Asa Dotzler's blog. Mozilla stuff is always interesting.
Author of the famous Phoenity theme, who happens to live in Penang where I some relatives stay. Maybe we can meet up when I go there, huh, Chee Aun?
Neil Turner blogs stuff that I would blog myself if I could. Well, mostly. Mozilla and tech blog.
Matthew Mullenweg's the lead developer of WordPress, and turned 21 not long ago.
Phil Wilson blogs mostly on Firefox and the Semantic Web.
vantan.org: The Daily Weblog
Fellow Singaporean Vanessa Tan is a "devoted Netizen" who works in an environment unfriendly to Firefox.
The Burning Edge
Used to follow this religiously, but a little less now because of more infrequent posts and also because much of the work now is bug fixing since the Aviary branch landing.
Not too many A-list bloggers in that list, but that's probably because people like Simon Willison and Doug Bowman have been posting less of late. Give these blogs/sites a visit or two and let me know if you know of any related blog that I can add to my feed aggregator (yes, I'm still interested in more despite an unread list of hundreds).
