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:
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).
