Today, I started to read my new items in Bloglines, but then, seemingly out of nowhere, I said “Fuck it”. I deleted all but 4 subscriptions (there were 82; at one point there had been as many as 120) but saved a backup OPML file in case I change my mind.

I guess you could say I pulled a Merlin. You could also say I “retired from the Blogosphere”. I call it gaining back my time.
