25,000 items read on Google Reader

Google Reader has a cool new feature (thanks to Steve Rubel for pointing it out to me) that shows how many items I’ve read, and how many I’ve shared with you on my link blog. Here’s some stats:

I am subscribed to 483 feeds. Over the last 30 days I’ve read 24,891 items and have shared 1,657 items.

I’m about to share some more from gate C5 at the Portland Airport. Plane leaves soon, let’s see how many I can get through.

UPDATE: It now says I’ve read 25,185 items. Whew, what a reading session. Plane door closing now. Gotta run.

  1. The items read by week, day, and time is really interesting…btw:

    From your 43 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 1,344 items, starred 0 items, and shared 159 items.

    Most of my shared items come from your shared items incidentally.

  3. I’ve never been able to get used to the online readers … they always seem too slow. I keep a desktop reader at home, and one at the office … call me old fashioned.

  5. Sheeesh, you make me feel like a wimp. Over the past 30 days I’ve only read 5777 items from 38 feeds. And I feel like I’m spending my life reading things. But the HuffPo and the Times consume a lot of time every day.

  7. While we are on the topic of Google reader, has anybody else been noticing that its being slow to pick up new blog posts? I don’t seem to be getting any new posts until 4-5 hours after the initial post – and this is with major sites like Tech Crunch and GigaOm which I would expect Google to update at least once an hour.

    Any thoughts?

  9. As I commented on ScottW’s blog, it’s a cool feature, but I wish Google would focus on the features that people are begging for – like integrated searching.

  11. Even though I just subscribed to about a hundred more feeds today:

    From your 242 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 13,927 items, starred 122 items, and shared 623 items.

    Robert, are you ever going to publish your opml file? I’d be interested to see what you are reading.

    Holy Guacamole!! My eyes hurt just thinking of reading that many entries.

  16. Robert, you’ve had the largest numbers I’ve seen reported so far. I tend to follow the strategy of watching the search bloggers who read a lot of feeds themselves. I can’t read every search-related post, but if there’s an important one, it will normally show up when someone I already read comments on it.

  18. Robert, How long do you spend reading each day? Is that why you’re missing from the latest c9park cartoon ;-). I struggle to keep up with just the ones you choose to share (along with the rest of my feed list). Do you just read the headline and skim the text or do you read the article in full (particularly those that just give the teaser in the RSS feed). Maybe we’ll see “Feedwalking with Robert Scoble” coming up on the Scoble show ;-). All tips on managing information flow gratefully received.

  20. Mark: two to four hours.

    I just read the headline and skim the text looking for patterns that catch my eye. If they catch my eye I read the full article. If the full article isn’t there, I link over and read it. Generally I’ve read everything I’ve shared with you. A lot of stuff, like on cuteoverload.com, is easy to ignore but is fun to see in the reader (I’m a sucker for cute puppy photos).

  22. Google Reader rules and I found out about it first on this blog. Props Robert. It really is like Digg.

  24. Thanks Robert for reading all those feeds.

    Probably why your blog has 100% readership on my Google Reader, and I like your opinion on just about everything, you truly are on top of the tech world.
