I subscribe to a lot of blogs, I’m not sure how many, but whenever I log in to my Google Reader I have hundreds of new blog posts to read.
Earlier, it took me a while, it took me several days to go through the list of blog posts. And when I thought I was finished, new blog posts had arrived.
It was a constant struggle.
Until I discovered the stars…
Now, what I’m doing it his.
I browse through all the headlines of the new blog posts, and when I find a new blog post I add a star to it. I don’t read it right away, I only add stars to the blog posts I find interesting.
Then, when I have finish adding stars, I click on “mark all as read”.
Now, when I click on “starred items” in the left menu, I’ll only see the blog posts that I found interesting.
This technique saves me a lot of time.
