🤔 RSS users, do you sort your feed types into folders, maybe by subject matter or similar?

@matpacker I have been sorting into topic based folders, but it’s grown cumbersome as I’ve created quite a few folders, and now some sites that were mainly tech news are now more personal blogs, and vice versa...

@matpacker I mostly sort them by purpose: Folders I check for work and for leisure and news, with a sub-folder in each category of feeds for which I want to at least see, if not read, every single post.

For everything else, I just adopt the “river of news” strategy. It’s not email, I don’t even try to read every one.

@matpacker Basically. Feedbin lets you tag feeds which then appear as folders. So, a feed for something dealing with the Seattle Mariners will show up for me under "baseball", "MLB", "Seattle Mariners" and "Seattle sports".

@matpacker By tags. Broad categories are personal and topical. Under topical, I may have specific topics if I have > 5 blogs.

@matpacker I try to keep a list of only the feeds that I’m motivated and able to read each day. If I don’t check it and the unread number goes up, then I generally delete it. Feeds that are updated less frequently go into folders, with the top level being my favourites.

@matpacker My feeds are sorted into folders: fun, apps, Micro.Blog, Newsy, Te Reo (Māori language), Wahine toa (women), YouTube.
