Oh happy day!
As I’ve said before, I find it nearly impossible to keep up with the steady stream of information that gets pushed at me all sorts of ways. In the case of my RSS feeds, I’ve opted in, chosen to receive this deluge of content, and yet it still feels like a job to get through it all.
On days like today when I get down to zero, I feel like I’ve won the battle.
But not the war.
I have a method for managing my incoming emails on my work and personal accounts, but I have yet to devise a system for RSS feeds. I’ve already deleted as many subscriptions as I feel comfortable parting with, and hitting “Mark all as read” is just pointless. I want to know what these folks have to say, and I want to be able to digest it all and perhaps even act on information as necessary — forward it to a coworker or friend, tweet about it, write a blog post. But I always feel like I’m skipping over so much.
Does anyone have advice they can share? Please post your tips in the comments for all to benefit. Thanks!
