After that basic setup, every time I go to GR it gathers the titles of the latest posts and makes a list for me.  If I see something that looks interesting I can read more. I probably take a quick look at one out of every ten titles, then read half of those more closely. After I check the entire list I tell GR I have read everything, so that on my next visit I only see new items.
