Week 2: Blogs and RSS fun

I’ve made it to my second post! Proud.

I registered my blog with Technorati last time round (although I never got round to posting about it) and I must say, I wasn’t wild about the site. It turns out that, in this respect, I’m like quite a lot of 2010’s Thingers, who also found it a bit unwieldy. A search for knitting brought up, as the seventh option, a post entitled ‘Can You Spot the Gay Porn Star in the New Real World: Las Vegas?’. Now, I’d be the first to admit that I enjoy a bit of trash telly while lovingly crafting a pair of lumpy socks, but even I wouldn’t go as far as The Real World. The relationship between my favourite hobby and sub-Big Brother reality TV remains a mystery to me (I couldn’t bring myself to read the post in question).

Google Reader, however, I can’t praise highly enough. I’ve been a fan for several years now, and it’s revolutionised the way I manage my online reading. However, I’ve got to the stage where I’ve got so many feeds that I’m getting almost an hour of new content every day, which is a bit of a challenge. I can’t bring myself to skip over anything, just in case it’s brilliant. I’ve got a feeling that it’s a skill I’ll need to learn…
