ReadRight Overflow: 300 Blogs a Day

I track about 300 blogs a day via Google Reader (If you don't have it, get it.) using a customized interface. Most of the time, items that I think are worthy or interesting are posted in the ReadRight sidebar. Today, my capture buffer overfloweth... hence the following.

"Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him." "A seven-page questionnaire being sent by the office of President-elect Barack Obama to those seeking cabinet and other high-ranking posts may be the most extensive — some say invasive — application ever."

You track 300 blogs a day? That's insane! I wade through 150 and I thought that was nuts.

I have a mad passion for blogs. It looks like you exceed my excess by a fair country mile. I have you thank you for introducing me to a a few sites of brilliance that I missed on my regular rounds.

"I track about 300 blogs a day via Google Reader"

Its probably an argument for cutting back.

300? Are you telling us fish stories, Gerard?

Nope. Google Reader is a harsh mistress. The current subscription count is... 294.

And I do prune it every day.

Of course, it does get overwhelming but you can always look at the count and if it says something absurd like "All Items (623)" as it does at present you can just hollar "Uncle" and mark all as read. But.... not just yet.
