For some reason your approach has stuck in my head all these years, so I’m curious if it has worked over the long haul or you have tweaked it based on new input etc.

If I get really bored and need something to do at work, i use del.icio.us's home page and just click on random links (thats how I find this) , but the whole RSS thing is just a a waste of time.

We are at the best and worst of times allowing and possibly disallowing this. The feedback to the individual that what they say is good for the world makes all the difference in the world. More feedback =
more writing stroking, time given to a not so trivial support. It seems to me that delicious does the best at presenting the givers, RSS updates the givers and allows you to separate the takers then you have an opportunity to do what you want.

Unfortunately the criminal gets to accuse those who have the cure for taking unless we not fight back but feedback like mindedness of giving, creating over taking and destroying in these last days.

Longer posts go on my regular blog.

I dump everything into RSS reader (NNW) and the try to orient myself in that list. Sometimes unread counts grows to big (into 700-1000), but nothing scary.

Also, it encourages reading the blogs in context, which means I usually participate more in the comments (like this).

I really like your “Linkdrop” collection as well. My – not so systematic method – does include RSS feeds (through iGoogle), so I won't bother you with that.

However, your post did start me thinking about the semantics of my ventures into the blogosphere – where do I go and why, how do I choose what to read and what not? Which is the hardest thing to me: decisions decisions. Here's what I came up with: I look for blog(post)s based on topics and the writers’ way of thinking. I look for ideas and simplicity. A certain kind of personality, that must shine through. Curiosity, inventiveness, and authenticity. Creativity and applicability. I look for original thoughts that I recognize, someone expressing something I have been looking for or thinking without knowing it, semi-consciously or fleeting. Things that inspire me.

Hmmm.., reading back that sounds incredibly vague. I hope you'll take the compliment anyway!

Best regards,

I also follow quite a few blogs, about 300. Anything that I could use for work is starred for later perusal. If I find anything interesting, I post it on my blog. If it's a good site, I'll bookmark it. I read a few tumblr blogs, but not that many.

I don't use IM unless I'm talking to my editor and I don't twitter. Each day, I'll read the nytimes business section online and check out some news/finances. I do that twice a day if I have time or just once at the end of the day.

The rest of my time is spent writing posts for the blogs I work for.

Sure, I made the site, but it's turning into a good place to find good things from my friends.
