I use NewsBlur as my feed reader. In it, I subscribe to:
- personal blogs
- sports blogs
- news publications
- GitHub releases
- Mastodon feeds and tags
- Bluesky feeds
- StackOverflow tags
- severe weather alerts
- YouTube channels
- PeerTube instances and channels
- Lemmy instances and sublemmys? (I don't know the Lemmy lingo yet)
Basically, if it has an RSS feed, I subscribe to it there.
Today I noticed I'm subscribed over 1000 feeds (1042 to be exact)!
Over 300 of them are personal blogs. This has taken a few years to curate. I remember my reader being empty when I first started. As I've read newsletters and personal blogs, I've followed things they've linked to which is where I find even more feeds to subscribe to, especially when they're easy to find.
There's some pruning that needs to happen at this point whether that's because of broken links or I just don't read those publications often. However, I find myself usually checking in on personal blogs and newsletters on a daily basis so I think many of those will stay.
