RSS Reading

Before a couple weeks ago I had never had an RSS reader stick, I had tried numerous ones, every time a new one came out I would download it and try it I would start by dumping my feedly account into it and then just look at all the numbers of unread articles. It became overwhelming because I just wanted the numbers gone so I would just mark everything as read. Never actually reading anything, it was a total waste of time.

Then a week ago I read an article by Matt Birchler about blogs I should follow, and earlier that same day I had read a tweet about an individual using an RSS reader for just peoples blogs.

I tried it and I absolutely love it, it has just friends blogs, no news, no subscriptions, no random stuff, just friends blog posts, I have a small number of unread items, and I read all of them.

I still get my news from twitter and Apple news, and now I have a dedicated app just to read stuff from people that I have selected, with no news or filler.

I’m so glad I started this experiment, the only regret is that I didn’t start it sooner.
