365 and holding

I discovered the joys of subscribing to blogs through an rss feed quite some time ago. My feed of choice is google reader, it's convenient and I really like the way it sorts my stuff.

Anyways, since about August I haven't really sat down and read through my beloved blogs. I have 103 subscriptions, obviously they are not all updated regularly, but many of them are. Currently I have 365 unread posts. I've kept many of these blogs at bay by reading regularly, but so many I want to take time to sit and read thoroughly... and they just pile up, accumulating more and more until I am like, yah forget it!

So today I have decided that I'm going to spend the next 30 minutes to an hour reading as much as I can, and then I'm hitting the "mark all as read" button *gasp!* i know, i know...

I realized that this (as silly as it sounds) is one of the things that is burdening my mind. I am sooo not a clutter person. But on the contrary, I'm horrible at keeping things picked up. Go figure.

So here's to a little de-cluttering... even if it is cyber-clutter ;)

I used to have the same problem. I clicked "all read" so many times when I was backed up into the 100s or 200s or 300s....I finally just had to give up and decide to only follow a handful of blogs consistently. I just couldn't keep up with everyone as much as I would have liked to...I think I have about 25-30 in my reader now that I actually attempt to comment on.

I felt bad weeding through them all, but it was strangely freeing too! There are only so many hours in the day ya know? Can't spend them all behind the computer.
