Internet Rehab


I just marked some 3000 entries as read in Google Reader, and I feel incredibly relieved. At some point in the last few months, I allowed myself to get weighed down by a feeling of obligation to the blogosphere, and that just isn't healthy, folks. I can barely keep in touch with the handful of people I consider to be my best buds much less the thousands of bloggers I want to get to know.

How do you manage to stay involved without getting overwhelmed? Do you limit the number of blogs you read? Do you rotate through them in batches? Would you rather have the ability to fly or the ability to absorb information from Google Reader telepathically? (Okay, just kidding on that last one.)

Seriously, though. This internet addiction can be crippling at times, and I'm curious to know how y'all deal with it.
