Steve at White Sox Cards wrote yesterday about the difficulty in keeping up with all of the baseball card blogs that are out there now. The number just keeps growing, which is a good thing, but that also means its becoming harder to keep up with all the blogs. Steve uses his blogroll, which lists the blogs by most recent post, and just works his way down the list.
Right now I have 120 blogs listed on my blogroll. And I read, or at least browse, each new post. But I also haven't been to many of the actual websites in months. Instead, I use Google Reader to follow the blogs. I have subscriptions of all 120 of the blogs in my blogroll. I'll just check in with Google Reader three or four times a day, and it gives me all of the blog entries posted since the last time I checked in. I'll read the posts, and if I want to leave a comment then I go to the actual blog. Otherwise, I just keep scrolling down.
Using Google Reader means I don't see your headers or layouts. It also means that I'm not included in any site meter you may have. But I am reading your blog. So feel free to add seven more hits a week to your count.
So how do you keep up with the blogs? Are you physically here at Wrigley Wax or do you use a RSS reader like Google Reader? I'm interested in hearing what you do.
