I gave up 70 blogs for Lent, and I don’t want them back

The number of blogs I read is always on the rise. Occasionally I go through and prune my reading list. I rarely unsubscribe from bad blogs; that would be much easier. Instead it’s the much harder job of separating the best blogs from the good ones.

Before Lent I decided that I needed to take radical action. I unsubscribed to some 70 blogs. I still have them stored and can add them back anytime I want. But it’s freeing to only have about 30 to keep up with now.

I keep hearing of people who only read 3 or 4, and they don’t seem to be any worse off than I am. I don’t want to go back to 100+ blogs I’m following. What’s your ideal number?
