I’ve decided that I’ve really got to stop wasting so much time with the internet. I look at how other people function in the world without having hundreds of RSS feed stories to sift through every day, and see that they are getting along much better than I am.
I’ve decided to stop following the webcomics that I’ve been tuned into, as well as several other sites:
As you can see from this screenshot, I’ve reduced myself down to a respectable 11 feeds:
I may very well suffer shock from not getting a constant feed of news into my brain, but I see it as an opportunity to spend less time worrying about the new whizbang thing, and more time doing creative things.
I’ve kept the few feeds left for specific reasons, most of which directly relate to the way I do work today. Hopefully this will work out for the best, and I won’t regress to visiting Digg 1500 times a day.
Also, I plan on spending less time visiting forums. I belong to a pretty long list, and they’re just going to have to live without me for a little while, while I get things straight. (Not that anybody would be much worse off without me.)
I can hear the crickets chirping already…
