This morning I started doing a little online spring cleaning. (The dire need for the old fashioned version of spring cleaning in my house and yard is a totally different post). I noticed that I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by online stuff lately. My inbox is overflowing, I’ve always got 1000+ new feeds in my Google Reader, etc., etc. These kinds of tools are great, but I suspect I’m not the only one that has gone a little overboard in subscribing for feeds and updates. This stops now.
I spent the morning cleaning out my subscriptions on Google Reader. I re-organized folders, deleted subscriptions that no longer interested me and tried to declutter so that this goes back to being a functional tool instead of another source of angst. We’ll see how long this sense of digital cleanliness lasts!
