Every day I read lots of blog items pulled from all over – library stuff, crafty stuff, school related blogs, miscellaneous weirdness and bits of usefulness. Thanks to Google Reader’s “J” and “K” keys and the space bar, I whip through a couple of hundred posts most days, because – shock, horror – I don’t actually read them all. Don’t tell anyone. I skim the post title and the beginning of each item to see whether it warrants a close read or further investigation. If it does, then I pop it up in another tab and get back to it later. If it doesn’t, I use space bar (page down) to have a skim read, or if I’m really not interested, I just hit “J” to move to the next post.
