The great unsubscribe
Yesterday I had roughly 180 subscriptions in Bloglines. Over the last few weeks, I have found myself skipping over blogs with new posts quite often, which is an indication that I’m not really interested in them. Most of the time, I read one interesting article there and subscribed, just in case.
I have now cleaned up my subscriptions, and now I am down to 100 blogs:
– I kept the ones that are friends or people I read regularly
– I kept topic related blogs with specific interests (SAP, Security, Mobile)
– I kept a few of the ‘A-List Bloggers’ that I really read
– I added some meta-blogs like digg, Tailrank, TechCrunch or Technorati
The assumption is if that somehting interesting happens in one of the blogs I unsubscribed from, it will be linked by one of the other ones anyway.
I guess that’ll work, and cut my blog reading time down substantially.
