Robert Scoble is one of the most famous bloggers in the world. There is a cool video of him on google’s official blog that details how he reviews 622 feeds regularly. Like me, his preferred RSS reader is Google Reader. Check it out.
I was really shocked when Scoble said he only checks the feeds once or twice a day. I only subscribe to about 20 feeds and I check the Reader compulsively to keep up, probably once every half hour. In addition to the personal blogs of friends that I subscribe to, I pull in feeds from:
- the Economist
- the Wall Street Journal
- the Christian Science Monitor
- the NYT home page, NYT most e-mailed, NYT Thomas Friedman blog, and NYT Goal
- the Official Google Blog
- the Onion
- the WaPo Soccer Insider and the WaPo DC Sports Bog
- the NJ Herald’s Soccer by Ives blog
- Dr Len’s Cancer Blog
I also use the aggregated feeds of Google News and Techmeme. So there is a lot to keep up with and I am adding more every day. For instance, I just added the NYT Goal blog today after my wife sent me a link to Jozy Altidore’s latest blog.
