One of the things that going away and not checking your RSS feeds for a month can do for you is help identify who is blogging how much.
I generally clear my bloglines account every day. As a result I don’t notice from day to day which of my 350 or so feeds are updating frequently.
Being away for four weeks has left me confronting 7000+ unread items (many of which I won’t read). However in scanning through them I’m surprised to see how little some of my favorite bloggers are posting. In 30 days some of them posted less than 5 times.
I won’t embarrass anyone by naming names – however some of them are pretty prominent and in my ‘must read’ list.
On the other hand I also observed that some of the bloggers that I follow are even more prolific at posting than I am – with literally hundreds of posts over the 30 or so days.
I don’t really have a point to make – just an observation that I’ll file away to think through later on.
How often have you posted in the past 30 days?
