This week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Do you follow a lot of blogs but rarely read them or do you follow a few you read regularly?
Kind of…both? I’ve mentioned on other occasions, especially while discussing how I plan my reading, that I like lists and I tend to be ridiculously organized. It applies to my blog reading too. I use NetVibes to subscribe to lots of blogs, and I have those subscriptions grouped into Favorite Blogs, Secondary Blogs, Tertiary Blogs (because I like the word!) and Blogs From People I Know (off the internet, I mean) The Favorite Blogs are a relatively small number and I check them pretty carefully; ditto the People I Know Blogs. The rest are bigger groups that I tend to skim quickly.
My particular blog-following quirk is that I never manage to make time daily to read blogs. Usually I spend one chunk of time once a week to catch up on everything–so if you’ve ever wondered why I comment on multiple posts on your blog in one day, that’s why! 🙂
I’m pretty much terrible at checking-in with the year-long reading challenges I join (more on those next Friday, by the way!) but I do make an effort to keep up with the posts for Carl’s seasonal reading experiences.
If I ever write a best-selling novel and don’t have to work any more, I expect I’ll read more blogs more frequently…but until then, this system seems to work. What works for you? How do you manage your blog reading?
