I've been trying to figure out a sorting mechanism and way to organize items and read them and I was wondering how everyone else organized theirs? My biggest complaint was when I've starred items, I end up having to scroll through a whole bunch of different posts to find them again. I read blogs about Sewing, Cooking, Paper Crafting, Personal Blogs, and still a Wedding blog occasionally so there are starred items interspersed that are not related and it was driving me crazy but I may have figured out a solution.
I thought I would share some tips, but I was hoping you might have some other tips for Google Reader as well. I found some other tips you might find useful here.
- Organize Feeds in Folders - When you add a feed to your Reader, click on Feed Settings and choose your Folder to add to. If you don't have any made yet, click on new folder and create the one that you want. I like to organize mine by subject, but some people like to organize them by importance.
- Use Keyboard Shortcuts - Some of the most common shortcuts include:
- j/k: item down/up
- o: open/close item
- s: toggle star
- m: mark as read/unread
- t: tag an item
(I cleaned up unread posts just for this picture :-) )
