Blogs I Read, Books I’ve Read, Podcasts I Listen To, & Other Media Consumption

I’m starting a new series of posts later today about my media consumption habits and recommendations.  I am frequently asked to recommend blogs, podcasts, books, and other media sources that I find interesting and useful. 

In part, this series was inspired by a post I read this morning by Daniela Barbosa.  She, in turn, had been responding to a call from Jeremiah Owyang to other bloggers to discuss their media consumption “diet.”  But it is also something that I had been planning to do anyway, this just got me going faster.

In some of the forthcoming posts, I plan to discuss broad categories of media (like magazines and newspapers) and cover what I read regularly and why.  But for the sources that I use the most (especially blogs, podcasts, and other online/social media) I will do posts specific to the source.  I hope to explain why I consume what I do and touch on the strengths and weaknesses — purely as I perceive them — of each. 

Hopefully this information will prove valuable.  I expect it will be an ongoing effort, though there will be an initial burst of activity as I come out of the chute.  Obviously those blogs on my blogroll will likely be featured, but I will touch on others that I add along the way.

To give readers some perspective on the (roughly) prioritized order in which I consume media, here you go:

  • Web (including blogs, podcasts, and other online media)
  • Email
  • Magazines
  • Books
  • TV
  • Music
  • Newspapers
  • Radio
  • Movies

I plan to spend some time on the tools I use for consumption as well as the sources, so stay tuned for that in the near future.
