[Help Me] Follow Friday!

I am a fairly obsessive blog reader. I just checked the RSS feeder I use, The Old Reader, [insert obligatory moment of silence for Google Reader] and it tells me that I follow 262 blogs on a daily basis. Some of those are dead, and I need to do some cleaning; some of them post multiple times a day. It averages out to about 180-225 blog posts a day. Do I read every single word of every post? No. I do some serious skimming for some of them – I’m looking at you, Harvard Business Review. (the signal to noise ratio of useful thought leadership to pure assholery is…less than ideal.)

I held steady for a long time, but I’m now at a point where I’d like to add new subscriptions. Over the next few days, I’m going to add a “horse blogs I read” function to this blog – possibly to the sidebar, possibly as a separate page.

I’m looking to expand my reading. I love finding fun new blogs to feature in my weekly blog roundups. I want to go out of my comfort zone and read different blogs, different point of views.

SO. I’m going to do a sort of reverse Follow Friday.

Please comment and tell me one (or two, or three) blogs that I should be following. Please include the URL and if you have an extra moment, a sentence or two about why you like that blog. I’d really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance!

  1. nice! i'm totally overwhelmed by my feed reader too – and am usually woefully behind everything except the horsey blogs.

    as for recommendations, i'm not gonna single out any particular blogs bc i don't know what you're already reading – but i follow everything on my blog list pretty closely and am somewhat partial to it lol 🙂
