Taking stock


September 21st, 2008

This post by Lee Lefever really struck a chord with me. He writes about ignoring his RSS feed, and not reading blogs for a while – even though there were lots of posts he was supposed to read. And that seemed to be the problem – he said ‘it felt like homework’.

I have some friends (OMG) who never read blogs (OMG) – really. We have a recurring conversation that is usually about how on earth I find the time the read blogs.

And the thing is, I don’t just read blogs – I read some blogs. And recently the number of blogs I read regularly is a lot fewer. Like Lee, I partly blame Twitter. It’s easier, lighter and gives me lots of leads. It’s not as much work as blogs. And I also read books, and newspapers, and magazines.

I do have a handful of trusted ‘go to’ blogs – the ‘A’ Team – maintained mostly by people I have actually met. And then there’s blogs by people I know of and admire that I visit quite often.

When the choice is so vast it’s hard to know where to start. I like to keep it manageable and connected. That, and Twitter, works for me. For now.
