Few days, or weeks ago I turned on my RSS reader and… 400+ entries to read. Next day… 350+ entries, next day… 420+ entries. I hate it… I really hate. All of that because of mashable, techcrunch, thenextweb, etc. Come one…
I have something about 40 or 50 RSS feeds in my RSS reader. So it’s nothing special when I open it after 24 hours of being out of the computer and see about 100-200 new entries to read. Most of them are from design blogs, such as behance.net, CSS Mania, One Page Love or design you trust, where one entry is one image or layout. I can simply switch to expanded view and read/watch at them quickly.
In another part of my list – I can find blogs like copyblogger, how to change the world, smashing magazine or signal vs noise. These blogs are really worth to read and what’s the most important: these blogs are poor in amount of entries. And that’s good.
And the last part of my list… the worst one… blogs like mashable, techcrunch, thenextweb. Blogs… with 20-30 entries per day. Come on… who can read it? I can’t. I don’t have enough time for it. I am clicking on ‘Mark all as read’ and I’m going to the entries from the other blog. However… on the other hand: I shouldn’t unsubscribe these blogs, because sometimes there are some interesting entries there.
Now… I can unsubscribe all of these too-many-content blogs. Thanks to tweetmeme and digg.com. On tweetmeme I can find the most popular entries from twitter, via digg I can find the most popular articles at all. And… that’s enough for me.
