Feed Diet

I don’t know how to find out how many feed I follow, and I don’t really want to know the truth. But today I am starting a feed diet. I am a news addict and this i one way to reduce the time spent looking at my feeds. There is a few that I don’t even read, or have probably never read, but I at times I found it too hard to unsubscribe to them. In the new netnewswire I can just click on the feed article to unsubscribe from the feed (GENIUS). I am going to document a few that I am unsubscribing from and a little reason as to why.

Cult of Mac – They don’t show the full posts in the feed. I only really subscribe for the mac chick of the month, who I haven’t cared for some time anyways.
Hypbot – It was interesting to read about how artists should promote themselves and I have learned quite a bit, but I am no longer in that business.
Neatorama – They just steal content from others sites who I follow. I will not miss anything here as it will be duplicate content.
GigaOM – Too business for me.
Fatlace – I love looking at the car pictures once a year, but it is just too much for me all the time.
slashgear – I don’t know why i signed up for this site.
Fubiz – The posts are great and beautiful, but I never look at them.
Achthung baby – I used to like the music posts, but I haven’t listened to one in quite a while.
WSJ.com: Speakeasy – Copy and pasted the title, I have never opened a link from them.
Techcrunch – Hacker news will post something that I am interested in from there.
Ars Technica – Same as above.
Geekolinks – They just steal content.
ProBlogger – I don’t care enough about being a pro blogger
Dajaz1 – I don’t liten to the music that they post as much as I should
A List Apart – I don’t need to understand what the web is about

Thats it for today. A lot of these post too much and some maybe post once a day. So this will help my feed diet. I will do this again this week to bring my feed count even lower.
