Editing My (B)log Reader

I’ve used Feedly as my blog reader of choice ever since the demise of Google Reader. A few weeks ago I logged on and felt completely overwhelmed by the number of unread blog posts that popped up. It was time to make some changes…I’ve realized that I just can’t keep up with the amount of blogs I used to, so I sat down and began weeding out my feed. there was one main criteria that I kept at the top of my list when I was deciding which blogs were staying and which I had to say goodbye to…

  • Most of the blog posts needed to be interesting and relevant to me. If a blog published 5 posts a week then at least 3 of those needed to be ones I wanted to click on and read, otherwise I un-followed the blog.

So I ended up cutting my Feedly subscriptions down to 29 blogs.

  • 8 book blogs
  • 4 librarian/library blogs
  • 6 lifestyle/design blogs
  • 1 parenting blog
  • 2 food blogs
  • 2 fitness blogs
  • 2 planner blogs
  • 4 Utah/Local blogs (blogs that give me great information on local events, hikes, activities, etc.)

Years ago I actively sought out new blogs to read but I haven’t done that in ages. Now, I really only add a new blog when I’m introduced to one through social media or through another blogger I follow.
