    More ways to control your blog-reading addiction

    So maybe you're not like me and you don't have close to 200 weblog feeds that quickly fill up with new posts every day. Maybe you have no use for tips on how to control your blog-reading time. But then again, maybe you do. Maybe you're an info junkie just like me. I tend to quickly browse before work during the week, but then spend some time sifting through longer articles on the weekends. All of this is time-permitting of course, and lately there's been very little time.

    Here are a few ways to make your reading time more effective. I mentioned you can set up a Probation folder to keep those new feeds in a holding pattern until you're ready to commit it to your permanent list. But this new article has a few more helpful tips, including organizing your feeds by frequency or importance rather than topic. I like that.
