Every day I usually spend about 30-60 minutes reviewing my news feeds of blogs that I find useful and full of good information on either marketing, social media, connecting and sometimes just great life tips. Using an RSS Feed Reader like Google Reader or Feedly allows me to quickly and easily manage the information I view on a regular basis.
Here are a handful of the top reads for the week that I found valuable and useful:

How I Organize Google Reader for Blog Commenting – Kristi Hines did a great job with this post sharing how she uses Google Reader to organize her RSS feeds and how she is now able to comment easily on blogs, even though she is following over 500 blogs. I use a combination of Google Reader and Feedly to manage my feeds on a daily basis.
