@cdevroe I find this… almost terrifying.

@devilgate Try it. I have no doubt you'll find it incredibly freeing and enlightening. You can, of course, backup all of your subscriptions if you chicken out. :)

@cdevroe I am finding this idea strangely compelling. For Twitter I'd only want to drop everyone who isn't in my 'Friends and Family' list, but that should be doable.

RSS though... I posted last year about a blog coming back that hadn't posted for years, and I saw it because it was still in my feeds.

How far do you go? Podcasts too?

@cdevroe That takes some courage, I confess I couldn't do it. Every once in a while I'll go through the feed list, and Twitter, and delete a few. But this is too radical for me...

@devilgate I am keeping family, of course. And, I'm keeping a log as I go to track progress.

@cdevroe I’m afraid it might work the other way 🤣 I’d end up following a few more, and regret it when morning came!

@maique That has happened to be more than once!

@cdevroe I don't go all the way down to zero, but I did do a big cull of RSS feeds in the summer prior to moving from Inoreader. Needing to filter out stuff is a big sign that it's time to stop following that site's posts.
