If you're reading all your RSS feeds in one big pile at Google Reader or another RSS reader, you're probably feeling more overwhelmed than informed. One blogger suggests a sane and convenient way of organising your feeds for less stressful reading.
Feeling entirely overwhelmed by blogs that were supposed to inform social work studies, one blogger used a combination of GTD-style monthly organisation and simple Google Reader mechanics to create a numbered, sorted and prioritised Reader folder list. The best of the best blogs and feeds go into the "every day" folder, while everything else gets a particular day to be checked out:
I culled the blogs that I simply must look at every day, and put them in the every day folder. Then, I went through each category and semi-randomly assigned individual feeds to days of the week, taking care to consider my schedule on any one given day and ensured that the content of that day's readings were most.* Two of the folders are reserved for those feeds that are, really, only worth checking once a month or so. So, I set up two folders - one to be checked on the first of the month and one to be checked on the 15th of the month.
The other key tip here? Starting your folder names with a number — "01 Everyday" — so that they can be easily scrolled through or accessed with a shortcut. Hit the link for more tips and explainers on this handy system.
