This is an important concept to keep in mind for life: In most cases new does not mean important. It’s highly unlikely that the newest content of that website is the best content that the website has ever produced. The quality usually follows a normal distribution, with a slight trend to improve or degrade in quality over time.
When I find a blog or website that I like, I always go to the archives and look for the “top posts”. If I can’t find that, I just work my way through the archives. This works much better than reading the front page. By looking at the archives, you can also get a big picture view of a website. You can see how it has changed over time and how long it has been around.
That’s why I read archives instead of front pages.
To happiness, and beyond!
