I follow through google friend connect or through RSS and feel like I'm missing so much...how do you make sure you stay on top of those blogs you want to keep current with?

I would love to hear from anyone who has a good solution. I don't "follow", but I do subscribe to 125 blogs in Google Reader. I just don't have the time to keep up anymore.
Same here...I am subscribed to a bunch in google reader, and have a few that I get RSS feeds on in email, but really want to keep up with more of them...there's too much good writing out there to miss!
I use Google Reader like the other ladies here, but I organize mine in different folders. Friends, Mom Bloggers, Blogging (blogs about blogging), etc. Using the folders really helps me stay on top. I usually check my friends folder first and then move on to the others.

I have also found using Twitter is a good way to keep up with folks. A lot of bloggers tweet when they a have a new or interesting post.
Google reader, and click individual on some.
I use Google Reader too but I'm thinking I need to pare down. I subscribe to too many!
I use Google Reader to read through them, then click on the individual posts to comment on them (not all, but say 50% at least). I also organize them in different ways
I have them in folders to read on different days, I usually can get an hour a day of peace while the little ones are sleeping. Sometimes I can't get to all of them, but I do try, it really helps my sanity most days as i'm usually home alone with the little ones all day.
I tend to go through the emails (I always forget about reader). I know I don't get to as many blogs as I would like to per day, but I do try to at least return comments, or email with a response. Everyday I hope to do more, but it doesn't always end up that way!
I also use google reader and have my subscriptions organized into categories, but I only have less than a dozen. I couldn't possibly read everyone! I also subscribe to the news but at the moment I have 770 messages! I wish the news papers would only send out the headlines once a day...

I agree it is import to leave comments on the ones your read and the posts that really strike your fancy. It always feels good to get mail...
As a single mom working full-time & in school, I don't have near enough time to read all the blogs I follow/subscribe to, but when I get "notice" that a new post has been added to a blog, I glance at it & if it is something that really pertains to me or something I'm really interested in then I'll read the whole post. I hope that's not being mean, but I know everybody who follows me doesn't have time to read every one of my posts. I don't know of any other way to do it.
I'm with ya on this, I will glance at the blogs I follow and if it grabs me I read the full post, except for a few blogs I adore who gets my full attention always. It's the only way ALL the blogs I follow get read;)
I have my google reader split up into two catergories.

*Blogs I like to read
*Giveaway blogs

I try and read Blogs I like to read everyday... the giveaway blogs are not so important to me.
I read them at work.. and sometimes on my Black Berry, however it is not very user friendly that way.

I e-mail follow a few of them (about 15) and that keeps me busy first thing in the morning.
