The unsubscription process has begun. I just deleted two blogs that would not heed my warning (if you continue to make me keep going to your blog to read complete posts and refuse to allow me to receive full content through my feed reader or in my email inbox I will disown you). I didn’t actually warn them. But they could have read my post a couple of weeks ago.
I did some detective work and found the RSS subscription rates for these two blogs (thanks for telling me how to do this Heather). One has over 900 subscribers and the other has over 600. That means that over 1000 people see the first couple of sentences of a new blog post in their feed reader and then have to click to the blog to read the rest. I. ain’t. doin’. that. I don’t jump through hoops. I don’t do obstacle courses. Don’t mess with me, I’ll delete your blog from my reader.
Two down, not sure how many more to go. There’s a liberating feeling clicking that “unsubscribe” button. No more frustration. Besides, I’ll fill their spaces with other blogs whose authors are happy to give me full content for minimum work. Will I be missing anything? I couldn’t tell you, I haven’t read their blogs in so long.
It’s purge season y’all. In the house and in my blogroll.
