Unbold & Unsubscribe
I spent a few moments — okay more like 2 hours — unbolding and unsubscribing several feeds in my bloglines account this weekend. It’s not that I haven’t been reading feeds lately, I just felt bad that so many of them had reached the *magic (200) unread posts.
Most of the feeds that I completely unsubscribed from are the most popular blogline feeds. Slashdot (30,170 subscribed), Wired News (24,690), BoingBoing (18,921), Gizmodo (15,057) and a few others. I’ll undoubtably still visit these sites on occasion, but I won’t try to keep up with their feeds. It’s just too much.
Then because I’m a glutton for punishment I decided I needed to get a few more c#, .NET, OOP, developer blogs into the mix. I subscribed to these 9 blogs. I’m assuming these are the right ones to be reading based on the post and association. I’d only heard of Martin Fowler and Roy Osherove before finding this post. We’ll see how it goes.
* 200 is when bloglines stops counting
