I love reading feeds

How many feeds are you subscribed to? I’m increasing my feed load rapidly again. Why? Reading feeds is a joy again, thanks to Google Reader. I’m not alone, either. Two people came up to me after our talk today and said “thank you for talking about Google Reader.”

“U, J, J, J, J, J, K, J, Shift-S, J, J.”

If you don’t get that, then you haven’t used Google Reader yet and you haven’t started a link blog of your own.

Three questions:

1) Am I putting too many items on my link blog? Often I’ll throw more than 50 a day up there.
2) How are you reading my link blog? Did you subscribe to it?
3) Have you started a link blog of your own? What’s your URL if you have?

  1. Hi Robert,
    I started using Google Reader a few days after the big update but I just wasn’t as comfortable with it as I was with Bloglines. I recently tried Reader again and now I’m hooked. I guess I just had to let the Google goodness sink in a little. Here’s the url for my link blog which I just started this week. Thanks for the recommendation. Cheers!

  3. 1) It’s only too many if you try to read them all. I mostly just skim the headings and read the stuff that interests me.
    2) I’m subscribed, and I’m about to delete all of the “news” blogs from my subscription list because of it. You are my news source now, I’m going to blog about that tonight if you want the full details ;)
    3) Nope, because I don’t have an easy way to create one (I use FeedDemon).

  5. (quickly, before I catch a plane)

    1) Nope, lots of links are good as long as they’re interesting/useful (Yeah, that’s pretty much a matter of opinion, but so far they’ve pretty much been good.)

    2) Through google reader.

    3) No, since you’re basically sharing all the items I see from my other sources.

    4) Yes, please share your OPML :)

  7. On the days when you add 50, it’s too many, but I found some good links from that information. It’s just imposing to have that many to read, and now there is overlap with other items. Wish there was a way to eliminate the duplicates in the Google Reader.

    I’m with you though, it’s great to have it available and it does a nice job of navigating through the web blocker at work :-)

  9. Robert, I am giving it to you. You got me to try Google Reader and now I am hooked. Yes, now I have a link blog BUT I don’t subscribe to yours. Me and a friend are using it to keep tab on what we are reading.

  11. I think there’s a bit too much on your link blog. But, I also follow a bunch of feeds and end up duplicating what I’m already reading, with stuff in your links. So, for me it’s not worth as much. But, if I didn’t follow as many blogs myself, I’d probably like it more.

  13. Robert, you are one of the folks who turned me on to Google Reader. I’ve now got several hundred feeds I am able to follow, and yeah I’ve got a link blog too. I put maybe 20 links per day on it.

    I don’t subscribe to yours, and I would bet not many subscribe to mine either. The main purpose of mine is to show links on my blog to posts that I have either blogged about or like a lot, but not enough for a whole blog post.

    My link blog is
    http://www.google.com/reader/shared/user/13328568669406058507/state/com.google/starred

    Oh, and thanks for this new feediction… sigh.

  15. I used to use it all the time. However, it stopped refreshing nearly all of my feeds a month or two ago, and as of a couple days ago, still hasn’t refreshed them. I’ve tried e-mailing them and posting on their newsgroup, but absolutely no help has been forthcoming. It’s too bad, cause it was great when it worked.

  17. I love feeds as well. I’m quite picky at what I subscribe to, so I only got around 20 feeds that I read. But I’m constantly going out of my way to read new blogs and if they seem interesting I’ll subscribe to their feed.

    I think you could put more links on to your link blog, tho I dont read all of them just look through the headlines and read/star the ones I find interesting.

    Don’t have link blog of my own. Don’t know why.

  19. 1) Yes and no. Lots of times I will see something I just read because we’ll have subscribed to the same feeds. At times, it’s almost possible to tell when both of us are reading b/c stuff will show up again right after I had gone over it. Vice versa, I’ll come to something from you before I get to it in my own set of feeds. Time travel, perhaps?

    2) Google Reader. And I subscribed after one of your several mentions on this blog.
    3) Oh sure. http://www.google.com/reader/shared/02874390538714179211

  21. I subscribe to yours. I keep it in another folder than my “daily” to read lightly when I have time, so no its not too much. I do go back to it.

    My own linkblog use is slightly different. I use it as a kind of pending file … interesting posts that I might blog on later, but at a minimum, I just want to hang on to them. And of course I link to it from my blog.

    Re posts overall I have 175, of which 84 are in my “daily” folder.

    PS … Google Reader has done (since the September interface change) for RSS what gmail did for email. I can’t go back.

  23. Hi Robert,

    I have been using Google Reader for more than 4 months. Till then I used to read using Bloglines. It feels very easy, both in the previous version of the Google Reader and the New version. At first I had no idea, on Sharing. Later it turned out to be more than a habit. But my sharing frequency is not as High as yours. Oh! and yes, I subscrube to your feed anf link blog. I have one problem, that is we both read Engadget, then If you have shared an post from Engadget and I happened to read it before I read from my direct subscription to Engadget, then GR should recognize it and mark both as read. Again, If I read Engadget’s Direct Feed before your link blog feed, it should notify me that it is also shared by Scoble!. Dont you think so?. Have you got any such problem subscribing to a link blog?.

  25. I’m using gReader and love it. I’m around 225 on feeds (including search feeds). I don’t do the link blog yet. I can’t see how it fits into my overall blog strategy.

  27. g Reader is addictive :-) And Scobleizer you are right when you are telling that you have started enjoying reading the feeds again! Its like breathing in and breathing out feeds has become lot easier… Somebody stop me :D

  29. yep. i stuck it out with Google Reader eversince. i knew they were going to improve the crappy first version :) so now i cleaned up my feeds and only subsrcibe to 180. i love the new interface. very easy to use.

    btw, i hope GReader support secured/private feeds soon. my workaround right now is to use Feedburner then plug it into my GReader. works like a charm.

  31. The only time I remember that you have the shared page is when you mention it in the posts. But, because you mentioned it, I decided to look into how they work and like the idea of using them. I have started sharing a few things recently and want to look into adding it to the sidebar of my blogs at some point and see if I like it there enough to keep it there.

  33. 1) No, I skim each one… read the ones that are interesting, its a great overview of the day… some are of articles that i have already read as i am subscribed to that blog to, but very easy to just hit n and go to the next one…
    2) yeah, i am subscribed to it via google reader..
    3) I have thought about it as it is a very easy way to share news with others…

    and yes please share your OPML… i am always looking for new feeds… i find myself spending more time in google reader than on digg…

  35. Gotta tell ya…

    You’ve got me hooked onto Google reader….I couldn’t agree more with you (“U, J, J, J, J, J, K, J, Shift-S, J, J.”)

    I’ve tried two other feed readers in the past -Wizz RSS for Firefox (loved it!) and Feed Raider, but the ability to quick-view posts definitely places Google Reader in a league of its own.

    I also think the ability to star and tag posts, helps me organize my online reading and manage my blogging references while I craft blog posts. Currently, I use delicious for online bookmarks and Google Reader for blog bookmarks.

    Thanks for the recommendation.
    Mario

  37. I’ve added short “Sugar Rush” posts to Zero Boss. At the bottom of every block of Sugar Rushes is a link to my items tagged “zeroboss” in Google Reader, so that people can read what I don’t have time to publish.

    Ye Gods, do I love Google Reader.

    Adding your link blog to my feeds, Robert. :)

  38. 1 – volume is fine
    2 – I subscribe
    3 – No, I haven’t tried it – I like sorting feeds into categories and archiving by feed within category. I have it down pretty well. Not ready for swimmin’ the river.

  41. I’m sorry, but I can’t bring myself to use an online reader. Google Reader may be as fast as NetNewsWire (unlikely), but I like to have the ability to read my feeds offline, such as on an airplane.

    I do like the idea of a link blog, though. Sharing as an afterthought is the way to go. If I have to jump through hoops to share, then it’s simply not worth it.

  43. I subscribed to your feed, but am not able to unsubscribe again because of a bug in Google Reader (I’m able to unsubscribe from any other feed).

    I like about 20% of what you’re sharing, and this 20% are now in my standard feeds-selection anyways.

    This 50 or more feeds a day are quite a lot if you haven’t got so much time to read them all, most of the time I just skip them, currently, because of the lack of time.

  45. After trying various reader programs on the Mac over the last few years I never managed to see the advantage over just visiting the websites.
    Google Reader has change that – ‘it just works’
    Could do with a search facility – for both the feeds you subscribe to and a search the web option – would be consistant with gmail.
    Robert, will your talk be available online anywhere ?

  47. I really appreciate your linkblog, but I think you should decrease a bit the number of posts you share.

    In the same way I used to watch the digg frontpage RSS feed but the number of items is increasing. They should strenghen their algorithm…

  49. After your regular positive comments over Google Reader, I made the switch from Rojo and started up a link blog. With Google Reader I can pretty easily keep track of all the feeds I read, and with the keyboard shortcuts and automatic loading, skip past the stuff that doesn’t interest me. In terms of being able to deal with the volumes, it has much the same effect that reading this post had on dealing with my e-mail.

    In answer to the specific questions:

    1. I’m not that bothered about the number of items – it’s one push of ‘J’ to go past anyway. The only annoyance is that some of the stuff you link to is on feeds I read anyway, so what is apparently the same posting comes up twice, and of course sometimes stuff that you skip over on the feeds is of interest to me.
    2. I’ve got it subscribed in Google Reader.
    3. My link blog is at http://www.google.co.uk/reader/shared/10133637988496888680, and also embedded into my main blog using a WordPress RSS sidebar widget.

  54. I started using Google reader after you wrote about it about a month (45 days?) ago. I’m hooked now – and I’ve been adding more to read too – and I like how easy it is to unsubscribe too. I’ll find some new blogs, subscribe for a while, and if I don’t like after a week or two, I just boot from the reader. I’m liking it. Thanks again.

  56. As to 1, yes, there are too many things on your link blog for a normal person to even browse through everyday. I would concede the fact that perhaps that blog is not for normal people. In which case, by all means, keep up the good work.

    I added the link blog to my reader, on your recommendation, early this week. On the first day, I found many an engaging article. I woke up the second morning to find twice my normal volume in my reader. I had to remove your link blog for lack of time.

    Cheers,

    I’d like to share mine, but I don’t like the fact that Reader publicizes my name.

  62. […] I just read a post of Robert Scoble about him being hooked on Google Reader. I use Bloglines to read my feeds. It is a bit of a drag reading them when you have been away from your computer for a while. I don’t think Google Reader is a solution for this , but I am curious to see how it works. And if it works well. So far everything Google is good: […]

  63. I have about 160 feeds in my feed reader and they generate about 700+ articles a day. I don’t have the key shortcuts integrated yet, but plan on adding it some time. My preferred style of reading is to just put it into collapsed articles mode similar to the list view on Google Reader and paging down rather than scooting down the page one article at a time. Similarly, I then expand the articles that might be interesting to then decide if I want to click through.

    You get pretty good at skimming article titles after a while. Blogs that I don’t like are those like Scripting News that don’t put titles on individual posts, leaving you to wonder what is in the article. I’m also not big on blogs that put giant articles in the feed rather than a small piece that you can then read on their site. They’re not thinking “eyeballs”.

  67. I consider your link blog to be a daily river that you create for those who need to know what it feels like when reading less than 3000 words per minute.

    I forcefeed your link blog to college students new to blogging so that they understand the research imperative. Part of that imperative comes by glancing over the shoulders of others. I appreciate you sharing the stream you create because it’s so much fun purging it ruthlessly from my Google reader. I can be ruthless because I know it comes right back in full force! In a twisted way, marking your link blog as “read” consistently produces the satisfaction I need from trying to manage my incoming mail. When I need a boost, I open your link blog, mark it read, and translate the satisfaction over to my unread mails.

    Thanks, coach.

  68. I consider your link blog to be a daily river that you create for those who need to know what it feels like when reading less than 3000 words per minute.

  69. Robert — on your suggestion I’ve tried Google Reader. I haven’t looked back yet. I find it much nicer than Newsfire or NetNewsWire for OSX, but I know that not everyone does.

    I have about 110 feeds. No linkblog yet,as I’m just setting up my blog’s shop, so to speak.

  71. […] I love Google Reader almost as much as Robert Scoble, and to celebrate that, I’ve begun a linkblog. In the past, I’ve “starred” these types of stories in my newsreader program, saving them before going back and deleting them after I had read or written something about them. […]

  72. I have been using just FF’s Live Bookmarks. Seems like Google Reader has improved quite a bit since I last tried, now actually incorporating the graphics from the original blog posts. Have to try that out soon.

    I try to keep myself updated of what is hot and what people are talking in the net, so the amount of feeds is almost unmanageable. Mostly i’ll just settle on reading Slashdot :)

  76. […] Blame it on Scoble… After kicking my RSS feed reading addiction while I was using Wizz RSS, I switched to a great looking, yet slow and boring Feed Raider when my RSS feed reading habit almost slowed to a halt, but a few evangelistic posts & video from Scoble and here I am, stuck with two google reader accounts and reading 100s of feed posts each day. The more you read, the more you’ve got to read! […]

  77. […] In the meantime, I kept reading how Scoble is addicted to the Google Reader (He’s apparently not the only one), so I thought I’d take another peek. I wasn’t too impressed with my first usage of it several months ago, but I kept noticing people mentioning sneaky upgrades, so I decided another look should be warranted. […]

  82. 1) Nope, lots of links are good as long as they’re interesting/useful (Yeah, that’s pretty much a matter of opinion, but so far they’ve pretty much been good.)

    2) Through google reader.

    3) No, since you’re basically sharing all the items I see from my other sources.

    4) Yes, please share your OPML :)
