Want to know something? Unsubscribing from old feeds and basically reoganizing feed subscriptions in folders is a huge pain in the butt in Google Reader. It was much easier in Bloglines – hey, Google Reader team, get on that, wouldja? 😉
I’m down to 391 feeds, organized into folders (fewer than I had before). I’m sure that number will creep back up again, but for now, it’s the lowest it’s been since, well, since I started reading feeds.
I’ve had several requests for my OPML file (pre-pruning), which I’m trying to clean up, and I’ll post soon. I used Dave Winer’s OPML editor on my Mac to edit it, and had my “guinea pig” friend report problems when he tried to import into Google Reader, so something might be screwed up.
Anyway, it feels good to have a lighter, more concentrated reading list. Feels much more focused, which is good – that’s what I’m trying to do with my life in general.
