Topic tags/keywords: pulse page new posts question

When I go to the pulse page I have been using the “All activity” link at the top of the page. I noticed that the links that I have looked at (or replied to) show “X new in last X minutes” in a nice green highlight. Easy peasy to just scroll down and see the posts I wanna go back and check, as well as scanning the titles of any that I have not yet read.

This morning I started scanning, page by page, and as I got to page SEVEN I see that its’ still only the posts that have occurred in the last 22 hours! SEVEN pages and it’s not even a whole days posts!

It dawned on me, if someone takes a couple days (or a WEEK) off from LJs, you may NEVER see something that might shake your woodworking world to it’s roots, and may have been a life changing post that you’ve been dying to ask but never did.

Just a little searching has shown this site has been growing in leaps and bounds in just the past few years. So I’m not too surprised at the quantity of posts on this site. To those of you that have been here for years, how do you keep up?

Struggle heartily to keep up. Because I want to learn, sometimes it takes hours to catch up.

My greatest fear is that I’ll “miss something that will shake my woodworking world to its roots”. I’ve spent some very late nights making sure I don’t miss anything! Wish I wasn’t quite so anal!

I try to look at every project thumbnail when I get behind. When I have more time I read ones that interest me and comment when I can.

But often I have to settle for a scan of thumbnails.

I look at every project thumbnail, constantly watch the forums page for new threads and check the blogs and reviews every few days. Pulse page is too overwhelming for me. ;-)) I watch for future with the watch list option.

I tend to look at everything… It has become a morning ritual with me when I check my email; I check all the thumbnails added since I last looked… I have my favorite types of projects and my favorite woodworkers that I will peruse in detail but I have that awful feeling that I’ve forgotten something important when I don’t have my daily Lumberjock fix…

I had to quit my day job just to keep up. But, it was worth it!
