I realised the other day that in an information saturated world that I just can’t keep up. I am interested in many things including:
- Online learning
- Open source software
- Web 2.0
- 2nd LIfe
- Christian living
- Personal development
And I am sure that there are more. In fact I am an intensely curious person. I love learning and enjoy people. My Bloglines account reflected my interest in many of the things that I have listed above. But, I couldn’t keep up any longer. Even though Steve Pavlina (who I admire greatly) can read at a thousand words a minute, absorb it and do something with that information I can’t. So after missing 1236 articles from Wired I decided that something had to be done.
So I have decided to stop.
I spent some time paring down my Bloglines account.
Here are the people that I read about now:
- The Blog Herald – to keep up with the Blogosphere – they do a great job of keeping me up to date to the
- Pro-Blogger – I am not sure if I will keep this one. Darren has put out a lot of great posts but I find I get a little bored with the content. It seems to be the same stuff over and over. But if I ever want to research about what to do to create a professional blog this is the one that I would start with.
- Steve Addison – World Changers blog. I love the stuff that he shares it inspires me to want to do great things as well.
- Tech Crunch – Either you love or hate Arrington there are plenty of people with plenty of opinions about him but it can’t be denied that this is the definitive blog to stay in touch with what’s happening in the web world.
- Steve Pavlina – A great example of what to do when no-one else is doing it and succeed.
That’s about it. There are a few more but these are the ones who post most regularly and who I tend to read most of their posts.
