Over the years I have been adding feeds to my feedreader willy-nilly. As a result it’s a wild overgrown garden. I can’t keep up with the info that feeds into my system. As with any other time I become overwhelmed, I’ve shut down and haven’t been keeping up with the blogs I used to read at all. So I am starting anew.
I’ve added a really simple feedreader to my system called Eat Feed. It sits in my system tray and turns blue when I have new feeds to check out. I click on it and reed what’s new.
Nope. Doesn’t have a gajillion options, can’t share, can’t favourite, can’t clickity-click-click to tweet, share on facebook, diig, plurk, whatever. Nice and simple. If I want to share something I’ll manually tweet or blog about it, which may make me think about whether it is really worth the sharing or not.
The first 3 feeds I’ve added are the blogs I’ve commented on for the One Comment A Day Project so far:
All three are great writers I’d like to learn from and I’m going to be adding to that list very slowly. I’m thinking lately I’d rather read few blogs in-depth than a myriad on the surface. For now.
