I generally don't subscribe to any bits unless I have posted a question and I'm waiting on some answers (but not always)or its something I wouldn't expect alot of answers to but I am interested in. So don't subscribe to anything very often.
I usually just peruse the WDYT and the misc sections going back a couple of pages to whats been posted in the last 24 hours or so as per PP
I just browse the forums I am interested in, and click on the orange boxes to go the last unread post in a topic I have been reading.
I will scroll through the front forum page and if a topic grabs me from the most recently posted stuff in each forum I will stop and read that, and then maybe more from that forum if it grabs me.
Sometimes if I am struggling to find something interesting to read, I will go back and look at what I have posted in and see if there are any more replies in those threads. Or I might "stalk" a member and look at threads that they have posted in.
Or I do a search on keywords for topics that I am interested in.
I read HEAPS on EB. I generally will jump on and read while I am breast feeding. I am a bit of a reader, but it is really hard to balance a book and feed at the same time.
