I stopped using browser bookmarks. Reading blogs by visiting the site is comparable to watching TV live. Using an RSS reader, particularly Google Reader, I am able to pull the posts and “aggregate” them into one simple to use interface. While this isn’t any particularly new technology, the new site designed for the iPhone is amazing.

How to organize your feeds
Not surprisingly, I organize my feeds similar to the categories for my site: technology, career, investing, and productivity. For posts that I enjoy, I’ll click share (which also gets shared on this site). You can also “star” your feeds and most importantly, Google Search through all of them.
