Joey Coleman: Cleaning up my Google Reader

Cleaning up my Google Reader

I’m cleaning up my Google Reader has I prioritize my feeds to reflect the topics and beats I presently cover.

One of my folders held a large list of “student blogs” which collected the feeds of various post-secondary student bloggers. Looking at the list, I realized that as the popularity of Facebook and Twitter increased, the number of updated blogs decreased.

The other thing I noticed, there’s a lot less discussion of student politics on blogs compared to the peak that occurred during the 2006/07 and 2007/08 academic years.

That said, the blogs that are still out there are of a much better quality and more informative than what existed a few years ago.
