- There are millions of blogs out there—how do I find one that’s worthwhile?
- How do I narrow down my choices—do I have to read hundreds to find one that fits what I need?
- Where do I start looking—it’s gonna be like finding a needle in a haystack!
- First, look for recommendations from people you trust.
- Second, most blogs have blog lists as a part of their layout. If you like blogger A and he likes blogger D, chances are you ought to give it a try.
- Third, look for blogs from familiar people. Now days, most bloggers have or are at least affiliated with more than one blog.
- I start with three to five blogs that I follow regularly. These are blogs I almost always read.
- Then I have a second level of six to eight blogs that I watch closely. I read these about one half of the time and I decide when by paying close attention to the subject lines and titles of the posts.
- Finally I have a third level of about twelve to fifteen blogs that I watch the subject lines and titles and read when they sound interesting.
