I am a Bloglines packrat. I am an info packrat. Period. But having 750 posts saved in Bloglines — because I’m going to come back to them, you know — just makes me shudder.
Here are some ideas I’m kicking around to deal with this:
- Just delete everything. This, of course, is the kill ’em all let god sort ’em out solution. And also the easiest and quickest to implement.
- Go through them, one blog at a time, and cull out everything that doesn’t immediately resonate. A bit more time-consuming, but also potentially worth it.
- Build on the above, but take the day’s reading, the posts that really resonated with me, and post them. Do the ol’ daily round up of reading. Maybe even call it Daily Roundup of Reading. Or something like that.
Either way, the Bloglines has to get emptied out — because if after only a few months of using it I’m busting 750, then all that means is that 4 figures if frighteningly close…
