I’m trying to get past my compulsion to make sure my Google Reader is cleaned out every day. I have a lot of blogs that I like to check in, but there just isn’t enough time every day to read them all! Before, I’d often just skip posts or mark them as read, just to get that unread number down to zero.
So now, I’ve created a “Read Daily” folder of the blogs that I want to make sure I read every day. The rest I read when I have time, or when they are particularly relevant:
Like my email, I have folders that I want to clear out weekly and monthly. My plan is to go through these on Friday afternoons or the weekend — times when things are winding down or when I can settle on the couch with a movie and my laptop.
