Do you all keep track of the blogs you read just by your reader? Or do you have another way that works better?
I have been considering putting the blogs I follow into a spreadsheet, so I can check up on them regularly and not worry that I will lose entries in the Reader.
BUT, I’m also concerned that I will spend a LOT more time trying to make sure I never miss a single post of the fairly large number of blogs I’m following.
Also, somewhat related: If you regularly read and comment on a blog – say, for 9 months or so – out of support for a fellow writer, and not necessarily because you just ADORE the content of the blog, and that blog owner never reciprocates, do you eventually stop following that blog? At what point do you decide it’s no longer worth the effort?
