When I was younger (like real young, just started learning to read), my aunt once asked me what I like to read. My reply was “everything”. I still feel that way, except I’ve found that reading “everything” can be problematic with so much to read. Sometimes I find myself reading about something I completely don’t care about, like when Britney Spears’ shaved her head. Couldn’t care less, knew all about it. I’ve begun to try and stay off things like Yahoo!, which has a ton of things staring in my face that I don’t need to read but will.
To try and escape information overload, I’ve made my homepage and favorites specific parts of websites that I want to read, like CNN or Washington Post opinion and politics sections.
