Phase 3 of my get organized process and shedding the summer months behind for good is getting a handle on the RSS feeds that I read. I was up to reading nearly 300 feeds a day - over 1200 posts a day. Way too many to be productive and efficient.
My first step in the clean up was to delete any and all RSS feeds that did not include the full article -- any blogs/sites that only post partial RSS feeds have been deleted - period.
Next I organized my feeds into groups, selecting 20 top feeds that go into a "Morning Read" group -- the goal is to read this group first thing in the morning.
I also created a work, technology, VC, and photography groups. Work will get scanned throughout the day - as appropriate, while photography, technology, and VC groups will only be read at night - and then only if time permits.
To further cut down on the number of feeds, I also deleted any feed that did not produce an "interesting" post in the past two week.
I am down to around 100 feeds now - still too much, but much better than what I started with.
