But I don’t always take good advice …
- Keep your feed under control. Don’t subscribe to too many feeds and periodically go through the list and remove the ones that don’t provide value to your life.
- Avoid feeds that are too busy. Don’t subscribe to feeds that push content out on a daily basis. Disable all notifications from your RSS reader. Unread messages counter, email notifications, push notifications—turn everything off.
- Subscribe to content that is not time-sensitive. Only read and poke around your feeds when you have time to read something and you’re in the right mood.
- RSS is a bit of a relic of another time, when the internet was slower and things were
For example, that first thought … I use folders to manage the feeds that lets me focus on topics I want when I visit.
