Getting back to RSS

Screenshot 2018-08-24 11.54.27

Here’s my exported Newsblur RSS feed list. It’s mostly everything I was following until the day Google Reader died. Of these couple hundred feeds, only a couple dozen are regularly updating these days and I’m slowly pruning out old dead ones that turn into commercial blogs when the owners stop paying for a domain and a squatter takes over.

For the most part, they’re people I met early into blogging and at events like SXSW in the early 2000s. Going through the list is like a trip through memory lane. I even pruned about a dozen links that went to long-since dead services like Google Blog Search, Bloglines, and Technorati search results I had saved in RSS.
