I just star posts, or so it seems with Google Reader!
I’ve got tonnes of stuff starred – 208Â items to be precise, with another 328 unread! When, I ask you… When am I going to go back and find time to read all those amazing things I’ve thought “I’ll blog about that”, or “I must read that properly later”?
I’ve taken a look at my trends, I do so enjoy statistics! In the last 30 days the primary candidates for publishing good content that I want to read again appear to be LifeHacker and my Bumpzee Community (I also have a view people waiting to get into that community – I really must review their sites now I’m keeping tighter control over it!).
I’m currently playing with my theme for this blog and hope to introduce a feed of things I’m starring or sharing on the site itself so you can see what I’m reading and finding interesting! It would be absurd to link to all 208 items in my “Starred Up” Feature (this probably wouldn’t have happened if I’d done that regularly!).
Maybe, if I followed my own advice, and completed my “Inbox Zero”, then followed Glenn’s advice and read David Allen’s book I’d find time to read and post about all these wonderful posts I’ve starred!
I’ve only got 39 subscriptions!!! How do other people cope?
I know what you mean, I’ve got over 100 subs…..basically you won’t have time to read all of the articles, you have to skim through them and go to what jumps out at you. I remember a guy saying he had 500 subs that he went through each day and I thought like you, “how can that be possible?”…..there’s just no way you can actually read everything, you’ve gotta have time to write and post on your blog, too! 🙂
I’d very good at skimming now, I basically look at the whole lot, star the ones that look vaguely of interest and then come back to them! I used to try to mark each one as read, but the “Mark all as read” feature is great in Google Reader and all the interesting ones are still starred!
I need time to get out as well as reading and posting 😉
