Google Reader



This year I decided I needed to clean out my overrun of blogs that I follow in Google Reader. I had set my sights waaay to high. We are talking several hundred. I don't have time to read that many blogs daily! I can't possibly give the proper attention and be able to comment, etc. 

So I go into Google Reader, go into Manage Subscriptions and wean (delete) out the ones I no longer want to follow. Takes quite a while. A couple of days actually. But then the list is at a manageable amount that I can handle reading each day.  It doesn't take me an hour to read. I am blogging and commenting with ease!

Then, two days later, POOF! They are all back. What?!? This keeps happening over and over again. Every time I try and clean out my list.

Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? Is there a better way of doing it? I really feel like pulling my hair out!

  1. yeah it's so very frustrating so i just leave them all and just read the ones that interest me in all honestly. i have over 1000 on my list!! there's no way i can read them all so yeah- i skim the titles and the source and if i want more, i'll read, if not, i keep on going.
