Cutting Down On Feeds – Getting My Time Back

I read all my feeds in the new Yahoo! Mail. I’ve been cutting down on feeds over the last few weeks. I’m down to 55 from about 100. Still too many I guess… I’ve seen other people doing the same around the same time. Is the quality declining? Or are we just subscribing to too many feeds?

I meant to keep a list of which feeds I unsubscribe and why but didn’t really see a lot of value in it. Here are the ones I unsubscribed today:

  • Download Squad and Download Squad: Yes, both feeds have the same name, one is for Google and one is for Yahoo!. They were more interesting in the Unoffical … Weblog days. And the Googleholic entries are really hard to read.
  • Coolz0r: He (can’t find his name on the site) does a good job at highlighting interesting ads and marketing. However ever since the hotlink protection, the feed doesn’t show images anymore in my feed reader. Clicking through, then clicking on the headline and then hitting F5 has become to tedious. See screenshot below.

Sorry guys, no offense intended…

Update: I just saw that coolz0r has been asking for feedback in case the above happens. I added a comment.
