Feed habit, recovered from I have

by oneafrikan on October 12, 2006

In the words of Yoda…

I confess, I used to be a feedaholic. No, I didn’t sit and read feeds all day, neglecting client work – my feed inbox just grew to gigantic uncomfortable proportions… But that’s all gone.

I’m recovered now, and vow never again to go over that magical 250 feed mark, where all hell breaks loose, sanity flies away, and it feels like the noise from everyone speaking inside your head just won’t go away…

So, I’ve pruned my feeds down to something manageable – most people have very little of importance to say on a daily basis anyways – and I’ve actually cleaned up my feeds folder so it’s at empty, waiting for the sync tomorrow morning.

So now I’m ready to do battle with the noise again, and even keener to pick up some more blogging, now that I’m getting back into my workflow and my zone, and have come to terms with the fact that I’m never going to lead a normal life, at least not for the next 3 to 5 years anyways…



You are going pretty hard on yourself. Being a feedaholic isn’t insanity or crime. Feedback keeps the Blog alive! so dont fret.

Gareth, may I suggest the BulimiaTM patch? It immediately throws up content after consuming your feed. It keeps you very nice and thin albeit with a few minor side effects.
