Robert has it exactly right. I have about 480+ feeds. Here are my secrets: pre-saved searches for topics you're interested in and group your blogs into must read, and down.

I rarely read the info from all my feeds, I just don't have time either (with writing for about 10 blogs...time is a premium).

Also having an RSS aggregator that lets you power-skim through the information really, really helps. I like Lektora (lektora.com) and I've heard good things about the new Onfolio. Sage for Firefox is also good for skimming, but no save-able searches. I can cruise through, like Robert, several blogs a minute. It's all in training and skimming.

I read a ton of feeds in one minute.

Here's a hint: out of 10 blogs, only 2 or 3 publish anything in the past 24 hours.

Of those, only 10% of the items are worth reading.

So, you can chew through feeds very quickly.

I put the best 100 or so things up on my linkblog. You can see that at http://www.scobleizer.com

I probably only check 20-30 or so on a regular basis (all manual, I'm stuck in the pre-rss era), I tend to cycle out the pop-sites though. The real power is in the long tail - the real voices of real people (who you can even strike of a two way conversation with via the comment section). I've found some very unique voices through searching odd keywords on technorati and following blog recommendations.

1,000 blogs a day! There are 1,440 minutes in a day. At one minute per blog, that leaves Scoble 7 hours and 20 minutes to do everything else.

I don't doubt him.

I wish I had that kind of time.
