The Great October Blog Purge to End All Purges (Part 4)

So… when I first started the Great October Blog Purge, it was increasingly difficult to choose 5 blogs from which to unsubscribe. It got a little easier the last week. The third week took me about a minute. And in the last week, I went a little crazy.

This week, there are 22 victims of the purge. I seriously pared down the subscriptions I had left, leaving me with… 130 subscriptions. OK. Don’t say anything. I know.

I’m not going to describe all these blogs; instead, I’m just going to list them by category (fitness, cooking and miscellaneous) and let you decide which ones are worth visiting at least, or maybe even subscribing to in order to make up for my unsubscribing.

[fitness blogs]
The Great Fitness Experiment
Andrew is Getting Fit
60 in 3
Trying Fitness
Almost Fit
Weight Loss Journal
Fat Man Unleashed
Quick to Fit

[cooking blogs]
Technicolor Kitchen
No Recipes

Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
The Kitchen Sink
The Food Pornographer

[miscellaneous]
Pasta Queen
Ed Stetzer
Apostrophe Catastrophes
Pete Wilson
Like Merchant Ships
Seth Godin
Worship Matters

As I’ve said before, none of these blogs are bad. I just have too many things going on.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

  1. Been there done that. One of the problems with the blogosphere is that there are so many great blogs to follow.

    It ends up taking over your life if you are not careful. I’m a big fan of regular purges too so I won’t take it personally. :)

  3. I ought to do a blog purge myself, but I find myself fretting about hurt feelings! I like your objective strategy.

  4. Say it ain’t so (sniff, sniff). Well they say breaking up is hard to do.

    Totally understand. Sounds like a very wise decision. If you ever find yourself bored and with nothing to do you know you’re always welcome back at Without Wax.

    Have a great weekend,

    Pete

  5. I am sorry to lose you as a reader… Perhaps you will change your mind and come back to me…

  6. Sometimes you just have to do a purge – even good blogs sometimes get cut from my list – just because they’re writing is my style, or it doesn’t capture my imagination.

    Good luck!
