RSS Adjustment

I finally went through my Google Reader and unsubscribed from a bunch of feeds I either don’t read or don’t care about when I do read.

My intention was to limit the amount of content that went to my reader.

That lasted about 2 days, and then I started subscribing to other blogs, including Kalingo English and Dangerously Irrelevant. They’re blogs that I’m more likely to want to read and to comment on though, and are very shareable with colleagues, so I’m confident in my decisions to add them.

Reading my RSS feed is much more informative and enjoyable since I made the changes. I shouldn’t have waited so long to shake things up.  I set up a quarterly reminder on my calendar, encouraging me to rethink and delete.  I don’t think I’ll need much encouragement to add.

Maybe I should set up “clear off your desk” reminders also – the cat just jumped up and fell off.
