I noticed that I was not having the same pleasure I used to have while reading blogs from my blog reader. So, I decided to delete some of them.
Yesterday, with many things to do, but no motivation at all to do them, I opened EACH ONE OF the 400+ blogs I had on my blog reader, took a serious look at the last few posts, and made a decision to keep them or not.
I am learning to value the time I have for working on things I like. Thus, I am discovering the things I like most, and I want to organize my life and my stuff to DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY.
I am also realizing that I will not have time on this life to do and learn every single thing I want. This, I think, is helping me to delete certain things from my life without pain; as I did with 300+ blogs yesterday.
Here are some of the questions/thoughts I had before clicking at the tab ‘unfollow’:
No beautiful and big images? Delete.
Not my style? Delete.
Mixing too many topics? Delete.
What is this blog doing on my reader? Delete.
I saw this post before. And I know I didn’t like it. Delete.
I don’t have time for this. Delete.
I will not miss this. Delete.
My blog reader doesn’t have blogs organized by folder.
My blog reader has 78 blogs – yes, still too much. I will keep an eye to my new fresh list of blogs and delete those that don’t deserve a place on it.
Guess what! I AM HAPPY with my new clean blog reader!
