Spring Cleaning 2013

What with the demise of Google Reader approaching I decided now would be a good time to clean out my blog list. As of a week and a half ago I had 140 subscriptions, and I've added several new ones since then. I added some of the Living Child-Free blogs from Stirrup Queens' Completely Anal List of Blogs That Proves That She Really Missed Her Calling as a Personal Organizer, and then a bunch from this month's ICLW. I've noticed that with our current situation it's harder to read some blogs than it used to be and I really don't feel like torturing myself right now. So if I've unsubscribed from you there's a pretty good chance it's me, not you. =) About half of the blogs I unsubed from either haven't been updated in ages (some not since 2010!) or just plain ol' don't exist anymore. About 3/8's of them were mommy/pregnancy blogs that I found too hard to read. The last 1/8th were like Reader clutter. For whatever reason I've been skimming or skipping over their blog posts lately so I decided to just get rid of them. I'm now done to 78 subscriptions! Some of these still haven't been updated in a while, but they belong to IRL folks and if they do start updating again I'd want to know about it. So excluding those I'm probably down to about 70 active subs which means I basically cut my list in half!

What about you? Done any spring cleaning of your own lately? Approximately how many blogs do you keep up with at any one time? I'd love to know where I stand as far as the average reading list goes.
