* spring cleaning

Posted on March 31st, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Links.


I just deleted more than half of the feeds I read on Bloglines. I am feeling overwhelmed by the craft blogs lately. I think I spend way more time reading them and following all their links than I do making things. I’ll make the updates to the site this weekend, plus the long-intended redesign (mainly brought on by almost hitting my bandwidth limit this month and realizing how big my background image is). So, fair warning if you want to take a last-minute peek at the links page before they disappear.

    I know how ya feel! xo

    Yes. I, too, have cut my bloglines in half. So much great, beautiful stuff out there, but I don’t think it’s necessarily so healthy for me to see it ALL at once! So much information! Ack!

  3. persephone Says:

    Oh! I do this too! And I probably have a small blog-role compared to yours. I need to focus on some “main” blogs (my favorites) and get back to more crafting.

    You have more will power than I do. I feel the need to get back to crafting, too. It’s tough to resist the internet machine sometimes.

  5. stevie Says:

    I was just thinking about the fact that I have 85 feeds in bloglines — I need to do the same. Good call.

  6. Michelle Says:

    85, try 164. I’m thinking about doing the same, or more.

    i recently converted all my links to del.icio.us, then just put a link to the page on my site. it works pretty well, although i’d be happier if you could sort through it alphabetically (it looks like that might still be in the works). it was actually pretty easy to load them all – you can download a button to your toolbar that makes it simple – but it did take some time.

    feel free to take a look:

    I feel the same about the craft blogs and Craftster too sometimes, just so much inspiration, tutorials and things to admire! I spend too much time scrolling through projects and not enough time making my own! >_I feel the same about the craft blogs and Craftster too sometimes, just so much inspiration, tutorials and things to admire!

    I hear you. I was away sick from the computer for one day and it took me almost 3 to catch up on all my reading!

    EEk! Totally feeling you on this. I rarely venture ouside of my links Monday-Friday (not that I don’t have a ton of links, but I am trying). I try to limit major blog reading days to Saturday or Sunday mornings. Those days when I find myself spending an hour or two reading blogs I want to kick myself! Good luck and congrats on the simplifying. Have a good weeknd, abby

    Thanks for linking my site. I need to cut back on my feeds as well, too much good stuff out there, but not enough time to read it all.
