Is today! Did you forget? Okay, it is not a real holiday but I am declaring it for myself. What does it mean?
I have erased all my blog feeds from my reader and started from scratch. So maybe a better title would be “born again feed reader day.” Virgin just sounds better.
Why did I do this? I honestly waste so much time reading and browsing sites that don’t give me anything back. Start from Scratch.
I just did it and it feels great. Now I only put the sites I remember and that give me the most insightful content. So it is about finding the 80% of great content in the least amount of time. Now, will things slip through my crack. No pun intended;) Possibly, but I will get the majority of news I want and have tons more free time to waste or be productive on other things. Thanks Tim for the idea. My feed reader went from 411 to 18. Free yourself.
Bottomline: Start a new feed reader today and become free. Let me know how it feels.
