But not putting the pressure on myself to read 1,300+ feeds every night sure is making life more enjoyable.
My feed list on bloglines is up to 250 feeds. There is no need for a bloglines notifier anymore. I know there is going to be at least five feeds that have updated at any time during the day. I have no idea how one could go through 1300 blogs, and remain sane! I'm getting better at only reading stuff that is interesting, but there is always a nagging feeling that I might have skipped over something that might be important.
Another effect I have noticed of being subscribed to so many feeds is that sites such as slashdot are no longer relevant for getting the important news factor. Stories on slashdot are old now by two or three days. I've already the story through posts in the blogosphere. The only thing slashdot might be good for is the discussion that follows the story, but usually that itself is just a bunch of posts claiming "First posts!".
