With Google Friend connect making an exit, I decided I needed to "back up" my subscriptions to make sure that I keep getting to see posts from all the blogs I follow. I discovered I have 252 blogs on my list. Yikes! How did that happen?
I guess there are tons of talented and fun people out in blog land that I love to read. :)
Every so often I pare down the list. It is a hard thing to do. I don't want to offend anyone by dropping off their readers list, but I have to be realistic in what I can handle time wise. If a blogger has a thousand readers, they probably won't miss me, so I will bookmark them to check in on every so often. But most of the blogs I read are smaller, like 300 readers or (way) less. And most of them I love to read, so it's not so easy to cut anyone.
What to do, what to do...
Anyway, I backed up my list by going to my dashboard and copying and pasting the list into a notebook document, then into a word document. (Word had a memory hissy fit, probably about all the behind the scenes coding, so I did notebook first.) I made a table and cut out the junk and now I have a list of all the URLS of my favorite blogs.
Later today I am going to go through Google Reader and add subscriptions to the non blogger blogs that I follow with Friend Connect. Hopefully that will solve the issue.
