Mission Impossible: Keeping up with the Web

February 8, 2008

30: the number of days I set to accomplish the mission.

158: the number of subscriptions in my Google Reader account.

0: the number of unread items I was hoping to reach at the end of the 30-day period.

3780: the number of items I read.

126: average number of items read per day.

255: the number of unread items at the end of the 30-day period.

Conclusion: Keeping up with the Web is impossible!

At first, it was quite easy, but things got complicated as I entered my final exams period. The whole thing fall apart after I spent an entire day without an Internet connection. I tried to make up in the last day, but after reading 316 items, I raised the white flag!


Lifehacker was (and still) the most frequently updated among my subscriptions with an average of 16.5 items/day. It is repeated in the list because I subscribed to their full feed recently.

What should I do now? Maybe I should organize the subscriptions according to their priority.

How about you? How many items do you read per day?

    16 articles a day? Hot damn. I have three feeds, but none of them give me 16 articles a day. One gives me an article a week, another an article every few days, and the last one gives perhaps 5 articles a day.

    16 is nothing compared to the 40 articles that Engadget posts everyday!!

    Now I have 198 subscriptions and 472 unread items, and it just keeps increasing!
