Richard's Blog Tips
Tip #1 - Use an aggregator
Blogs are much easier to read when using an aggregator, such as Bloglines or Google Reader. These free services allow you to read all of your feeds in one location (instead of having to visit each blog every day to find the new postings).
Tip #2 - Read unrelated blogs
Subscribe to blogs that expose you to ideas that you would not normally be exposed to otherwise. If you're in Higher Education, subscribe to a k-12 blog. If you live in the US, subscribe to some Australian blogs.
Tip #3 - Be Skeptical
After signing up for a number of blogs I decided I didn't want to invest the time necessary to keep up with the additional reading. I went to delete my aggregator account but decided to read the entries that had come in first. I found several ideas that were so helpful that I decided not to delete the account at that time. I returned about two weeks later once again to delete the - the same thing happened. Now every time I login to read my blogs I decide that I will delete my account if I don't find anything useful that day. I would invite you to do the same. 6 years later I still have my account.
