I’ve decided that I no longer have enough time to read as many blogs as I did. Although having said that, although I felt snowed under during the week, I’ve found myself with way more spare time at the weekend than I expected.
Anyway, my Bloglines account had almost 300 subscriptions in it. I’ve followed the advice that all those lame “don’t waste as much time blogging” articles contain, and I’ve trimmed it down to under 200 now. I’m only sticking with blogs that I really like to read. I’ve also made some changes to the blogroll. I usually give borderline blogs the benefit of the doubt, but I’ve been pretty ruthless this time.
Another reason why I’ve taken a lot of blogs out of my Bloglines list is because I’ve realised that I’m no longer really reading blogs. When you’ve got a counter that actually tells you how many posts you haven’t read, the whole thing becomes like a game to get that number down to zero. Well, that’s how the world of Duncan works anyway.
I’m not sure how much time this is going to save me though. A lot of the feeds that I took out hadn’t been updated for a long time, sometimes up to a year!
Anyway, I’m hoping to explore the blogosphere a bit more in the way I did before I discovered RSS readers.
