How do you organize your news reader?

In Bloglines, I currently have the following folders:

  • Comics
  • Hot Deals
  • Miscellaneous
  • Music – mainly CD releases
  • Personal – friends, blogs that cover scattered topics
  • Productivity
  • Scrutinizing – feeds I’ve recently subscribed to; in a few weeks, I’ll either move them to another folder or unsubscribe entirely
  • Software
  • Tech

Questions

  • How do you organize your feeds?
  • How do you read them efficiently?
  • How can you improve this system?
  • Are there any articles you’ve read that offer insight?

One thought on “How do you organize your news reader?”

  1. I almost exclusively use Netvibes. After jumping around from Protopages to Live.com to Google’s personalized home page, I settled on Netvibes. I typically split up my feeds into three pages, one for news/business, one for tech stuff, and another for blogs I enjoy reading. I don’t usually use the built-in RSS reader as I prefer to see the content in its native format, at the website. So I’ll go around and pick out the topics that look interesting and click through to the site.

    I blast through probably 50 articles a day on average and it seems like a pretty efficient system to me.
