So after some honest to goodness work on writing toward my phd, I just blasted through 588 unread items in my aggregator. As I read, I tap the “post to weblog” button and save a draft of each post I want to write about or respond to. Tonight, I saved 19 drafts. So I guess my feed items to posts ratio is 19 to 588, giving me a posting rate of about 3%. In other words, for every 100 items I read from my feeds, I want to write about three of them.
In addition I have 14 additional saved drafts related to work or off line phd readings, which might suggest that I want to produce at about 2% the rate of what I read.
I wonder how this stacks up to other bloggers’ habits. It is interesting to figure out this process as I go. I’m sure it needs more fine tuning, especailly from a time management point of view. Now, it’s time to sleep.
I have plenty to write about this weekend. As a bonus, I’ll have comments to write about, too… and when it comes to certain topics, perhaps I’ll be better able to blog with discretion than I might have been tonight. ;)
