Keeping Track of Blog Posts

How do you keep up with the blogs that interest you? You don’t want to spend all day online, but you also don’t want to miss anything.

I may have mentioned before how easy Bloglines is to use. That’s how I keep track of the blogs I don’t want to miss but don’t need to read daily. I enjoy the “keep it new” feature if there’s a post I want to keep to read again.

Blogs I want to read daily, like Other Food: Daily Devos and Rainbow Gulf of Love, I get by email. I’m careful to keep it to a few, though, or they’ll end up sitting in my in-box and not get read.

Something new I’ve discovered is Read it Later, which lets me mark a specific post for later viewing. This is great if I think it’ll be a one-time thing and I don’t want to set up a new bookmark or subscription. The Read it Later button sits on my Firefox toolbar, and it’s a one-click deal to use. No logging in or other tricky bits.

If you need a way to subscribe to blogs and you’re not familiar with RSS (=really simple syndication, I believe) here’s a reader-friendly explanation from Thomas Umstattd at Author Tech Tips.

What works best for you?
