I read a lot. I probably spend a couple hours a day just trying to keep up with new social media related content out there. I also send out a lot of articles and Tweets to my colleagues, mostly information relevant to projects we are working on, or projects I think we should be working on. Last week, a co-worker asked where do I find all of it. So I thought I would just write a post about what I read everyday (*or almost everyday).
I am not big on my RSS reader. I get bogged down in it for some reason, and I miss the things that would probably be most important to me, so I am a big believer in the email newsletter. I subscribe to almost every site’s newsletter that has ever had an interesting article or post. I weed through the newsletters every day and if it’s a particularly slow day (or night) I read them all. But on most days, I read the ones that are ‘can’t miss’ in my book.
