Information overload

I need a better way to organise my reading page. I currently have a heap of subscriptions, mostly to things and people I genuinely want to read, but I am seriously lacking in time. I find that if I don't read my flist for a couple of days then, by the weekend, I'm too far behind to catch up. Or I open tabs with the intention of commenting but find that, by the time I read it a week later, the moment has passed to make a useful comment. So, how do you deal with information overload? Do you filter by topic or by some other secretly genius method?

Can't. Make. Decision. HELP!

On the one hand, SGA Big Bang is live, and I have a burning need to start reading [info - personal] telesilla's, [info - personal] sabinetzin's and [info - personal] auburn's fics all at once.

On the other hand, there's 20% bonus Achievement Award on EQ2 this weekend and, while Raelynne is fully capped out and ready for the next expansion, I really need to be levelling my shadowknight, Sentai. And of course, I have my shiny new RAM to give everything Go Faster Stripes.

On the third hand (or maybe a prehensile tail), I've finally ported my RL journal to DW. But I now need to devise a tagging system that will work for that journal and this one (since I intend to crosspost) and then retag 6 years of entries.

So, a poll to help me decide )

The first thing I am going to do is get dressed. It is technically the afternoon now, and I should not still be lounging in my scruffy dressing gown. Then, maybe a bacon muffin for lunch...

Post in passing

It's been quite a manic few days. Builders were supposed to be finished on Friday; they weren't. They were back today, despite the bank holiday, but are still not done. I'm also not 100% happy about the things that they have done today. Paz and I have also spent quite a lot of time looking at carpets, buying paint samples, sanding walls and cleaning up after builders. I think tomorrow will be more of the same.

I have recs to post, and no time, damnit!

Also, tag autocomplete! Loving DW more and more.

I can haz Dreamwidth!

I had no idea that registering an OpenID account on Dreamwidth last month would get me an invite code today. I feel like I've had a birthday! So, I've spent most of the day playing and finding people (comment if I haven't found you yet), and now I'm testing the cross-posting, which has to be the most nifty feature ever!

Happy days :D
