Unsubscribe

If you run a blog that is nothing but “speedlink” style posts, you will be removed from my feed reader shortly. Linkblogs are great when paired with real content. If you can’t generate any real content of your own, you’re wasting my bandwidth. Bye bye.

  1. It is good to reclaim some precious time. After your earlier post showing bloglines appearing to show that many blogs have ‘dormant’ subscribers, many more people need to do this, to reduce some author’s egos.

    I’d be interested to hear how many (and what percentage) of blogs you cull.

  2. I hate those “speed link” posts. It’s very rare that I find anything of interest in them, and the interesting stuff probably should have just been blogged in a full post anyway.

    Good thing the posts themselves are rather uncommon.

    I experimented with something similar to it, but eventually dropped it.

  3. I go through the same process every month or two… whenever I get around to it. Speedlink posts are fine, as filler posts.. nothing more. If that’s all you have to offer, perhaps it would be best not to have a blog at all?
