The rule of five? For me, that would be off by a factor of 10.

April 29th, 2007

At Saturday’s Wisconsin Blog Summit, discount cialis see local radio personality Charlie Sykes said he thinks most people can only keep up with about five blogs a day, viagra usa but to me that’s like saying you can only read five articles in the newspaper or in Newsweek or Time.

I’m currently following over 50 blogs. It’s easy to do when you use a newsreader.

Here’s the list of blogs I’m following on a daily basis:


At the Tap

The American Mind

An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

Ask Me Later

Atomic Trousers

Badger Blogger


Blogger Beer

Boots & Sabers

The Confidentials

Eugene Kane

Folkbum’s Rambles & Rants

Frank Lasee

Freedom Eden

From the Salty City

Fuzz Martin

The Gun Blogs

The Happiness Project

The Happy Circumstance


Lance Burri

The Law Dog Files

Letters in Bottles

Living on the backside of 20

Marquette Warrior

Milwaukeean Rhapsody

Milwauke Idiot

Musings of a Thoughtful Conservative

No Runny Eggs

The Other Side of My Mouth

Patrick McIlheran

Real Debate

Scott Mehring

Shark & Shepherd

Silent E Speaks

Spotted Horse

Subject to Change

Texas Hold ’em Blogger

The Unpleasantness

View from the Cheap Seats

The Volokh Conspiracy

Wigderson Library and Pub

The World According to Nick

They don’t all post everyday, but all of them are worth reading when they do.

By the way, if WTMJ would get their feeds working, I would also add Charlie Sykes and Jessica McBride to my reader.

If any of you out there think there is something I SHOULD be reading but I’ve missed, please leave the url in the comments section. And if you see any blogs on my list that you haven’t heard about, feel free to give them a look. You might find a new blog to add to your daily five (or 50).

    Nope I can’t think of anyone you should be reading who you are not reading…

  • 2. Fuzz Martin  |  April 29th, 2007 at 7:23 pm

    Thanks! Yours is on my list of daily-reads, too.

  • 3. Dean  |  April 29th, 2007 at 8:15 pm

    Thank God. I thought I was trying to do the impossible. News readers are definitely a must.

  • 4. Kate  |  April 29th, 2007 at 8:23 pm

    Wow. So it’s not just me that reads a ton of blogs pretty much daily, eh? :) Oh, and thank you for having me on your list. I’m honored.

    We have to help these amateur better handle the ever-growing infostream. Time for a RSS 101 workshop.

  • 6. Peter  |  April 29th, 2007 at 9:21 pm

    I just subscribed to Google Reader and am trying to find out which one of my daily reads has feeds. I was surprised to find Boots & Sabers rejected by Google Reader.

  • 7. Sean Hackbarth  |  April 29th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Peter, there are links to two different RSS formats at the bottom of the B&S page. Here’s one:

    You should be able to cut and paste it into Google Reader.

  • 8. Peter  |  April 29th, 2007 at 11:32 pm

    I knew there had to be one somewhere. The rejection notice from Google Reader stunned me. But I don’t know enough about feeds to know what to look for.

    I think you might enjoy Ambulance Driver’s blog.

  • 10. Sean Hackbarth  |  April 30th, 2007 at 8:18 am

    Peter, keep an eye on URLs with “xml” at the end or rss in it. Or look for the orange icon that looks like a speaker–see the first column of my weblog’s sidebar.

  • 11. Administrator  |  April 30th, 2007 at 8:29 am

    Thanks Bob, I’ve added him to my reader to give him a chance. He’s in a good circle. (Although I had a little falling out with the View from the Porch crowd a little while back.)

  • 12. Administrator  |  April 30th, 2007 at 9:14 am

    Kate, you’re a great read.

    We’re gonna miss you now that you’ve went south on us, though. ;)

  • 13. Rustmeister  |  April 30th, 2007 at 9:28 am

    I used to only read a few, but now that I’ve figured out the whole RSS thing, I can cover a lot more ground.

  • 14. Nick  |  April 30th, 2007 at 5:51 pm

    Boots & Sabers has a working feed (though not terrific). This is the one that I use in Google Reader:

  • 15. Stacy  |  April 30th, 2007 at 9:36 pm

    I know I’ve been saying this forever, but I really mean it this time: WTMJ feeds will be up, probably the beginning of June.

    Coming shortly thereafter….comments!!

    You ask, we listen. ;)

  • 16. Lance  |  May 1st, 2007 at 8:31 am

    Let’s see, I’ve been to a brat feed, a chili feed, a chicken feed, a corn feed, and even a cheese feed. Oh, and I had lutefisk once. That was a feed. But an RSS feed? How does that taste?

  • 17. Fuzz Martin  |  May 1st, 2007 at 8:37 am

    “how does that taste?” Uhm… Really Simple, Stupid. :-D

  • 18. Sean Hackbarth  |  May 1st, 2007 at 8:45 am

    Lance, find a dead 9-volt battery and apply it to your tongue. Yummy!

  • 19. Lance  |  May 2nd, 2007 at 8:00 am

    No way, Sean. I’m not falling for that. Again.

  • 20. Kate  |  May 2nd, 2007 at 12:23 pm

    Ah, but that’s the beauty of the internet. It’s almost like being right next door. :)

  • 21. Sean Hackbarth  |  May 2nd, 2007 at 9:47 pm

    Lance, ok then bite down some some aluminum foil. Feel the tingle.

    […] recently posted a list of blogs I follow every […]

  • 23. Pete Fanning  |  May 8th, 2007 at 8:31 am

    I use Sharpreader as an RSS tool…it’s free (or donationware), and very intuitive….you might want to give it a try if you use Windows as your OS of choice….

  • 24. phel  |  May 21st, 2007 at 4:48 pm

    Thanks man, yours is on my list too!
