Taming the Fountain of Blog

There are nearly 71 million WordPress blogs. Tumblr boasts more than 43 million microblogs. Today.

There’s Blogger, TypePad, Moveable Type, etcetera, ad nauseam. So many blogs, so little time to read them all.

I subscribe to RSS feed readers that are supposed to make following a multitude of blogs easier. So why do I still feel like I’m drinking from a fire hose?

While I learn to narrow down, take in, process and respond to all the blogs I want to read, I’ve gone back to basics.

I’ve made a list.

As Lucy said in a Peanuts cartoon, “That’s called survival, baby.”

My list is actually called The Social Network. You’ll find it in the overcrowded menu at the top of this blog.

The Social Network is now categorized to help you select blogs to explore. There are some recent additions. More will be added.

Please check back as this list grows, evolves and probably gets out of hand.

Cheers to you as you tame the fountain of blog. May you swim and not sink in this flood of information.

Regis, throw me a lifeline.

The LORD sits enthroned over the flood;
the LORD is enthroned as King forever. Psalm 20:10 NIV
