I finally did it. I had to. I hit the big red panic button on my blog-reader. I use FeedDeamon, and I really love it. For a little while it wouldn’t show up all new posts as unread, but I noticed this week that there was an update. I’m thinking that problem had something to do with it. So I updated. And that cleared up my problems!
But I still had another problem. I had about 250 unread blog posts. I follow probably a good 50 blogs or more, and ever since my family had visited I’d gotten way behind on my reading. And no matter how much I read, I stayed behind. So after 3 months of trying to catch up, I did it. I hit the panic button, which deleted every post that was more than 24 hours old. Now after 4 days, I have ZERO unread posts. And I’m commenting on more of the blogs I enjoy, because I’m not trying to get through so many. It’s amazing how I can get up and do my daily computer stuff, and after an hour or so I’m done! I feel more accomplished, just from a big red button.
