I enjoy writing blog posts, but that’s not the topic of this post. One of my favorite blogging activities is skimming through and reading other bloggers’ posts. I don’t read them all, but I use a mixture of WordPress Reader, e-mail updates, and scrolling through random bloggers in one of two ways: first, picking a category that WordPress offers up; second, scrolling through the blogs I follow and looking at what they have posted recently. In the second case, I look for bloggers that I haven’t seen in the Reader lately. I use a similar approach when looking through vlogs. I may also do topic searches on blogs and vlogs.
I learn new techniques, places to look for things, and other tidbits by reading through blogs or watching vlogs. I may also learn new ways of looking at things.
In addition, I may re-blog or share a blog or vlog post that I find interesting, funny, unusual, or remarkable in some other way.
