Blogs, Blogs, OMG BLOGS!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, I don't know how I do it, but I have at least 90 blogs on Blogger that I attempt to read every day.

I also have about 100 friends on Livejournal and about another 100 or so on myspace. Thankfully, some are duplicates (like my blogs), and others are just feeds from news places like cnn, pw, media bistro, anime network...

But, in any given day I must read about 400 to 500 Blog headings. If I like the heading or think it has useful information, I will skim the blog. If it's a review on a book, I'll usually take a quick look. If it has anything to do with publishing, writing, agents, or editors, I will make the time to read it.

I can read fast. I'm also very good at skimming. I think this is the only thing that helps me get through as many blogs as I do.

Here are some you should follow or check out:
