Housekeeping

I just found out that there is a limit of around 300 blogs that you can follow.  As a result, I went through my list of followed blogs and cleared out a huge bunch of inactive ones.  This way, I can start adding new blogs that are active to my list once again.

To all those that have not done this yet, I highly recommend you to clear out your list of inactive blogs.  You will not be able to follow more blogs once you hit this 300 limit.

Bottoms-up my friend.

  2. i went through last week and got rid of all the blogs that don't update anymore, seems like it needs to be done every 2 weeks or at least once a month.

  6. Been doing this since I started. Once you get one that has daily in its name and hasn't updated in 2 weeks, it's a clear sign.

  7. Nice info, is there a way to identify blog without updates?

  8. Baxxman - yes. If you go to your blogger dashboard and look at the bottom-left panel of your screen, you will see the list of blogs that you are following. Click through them individually, you will be able to see when was the last time they update their blog, and you will be able to tell which are the ones who don't update anymore.

  14. I think the majority of bb.comr's made pointless blogs and don't bother with it anymore, I try and
    update mine as much as I can, hard when money is tight and I can't go out and review restaurants

    ReplyDelete
  15. This is a good idea and something I should do later today.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Im not anywhere near 300 yet but I imagine it would take a long time to go through them all if I was there, so I should do this now.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, didn't know that. I'll do that once Im at least in the late 200s.

    ReplyDelete
  18. thanks for the tip, going to clean it when I have some time : )

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah I'll have to go through my blogs eventually to see if people are still posting, a lot of what I follow is new and many blogs don't last.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good idea gotta get rid of the useless ones

    ReplyDelete
  21. is that right? i never knew that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Really? Is 300 the limit? Might have to check my list...

    ReplyDelete
  23. yeah, unfortunately it takes about an hour to go through a list that size. I already did it once, I'll probably do it again every other week.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yea, I've been slowly cleaning my following list, but it's a pain the way it is setup on blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  25. cheers man, I didn't know there was a limit, I kept following everything. I might have to start clearing stuff as well

    ReplyDelete
  26. So much work. :/ But yea, you're right, gotta be done sooner or later..

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow I didn't know about the limit, thanks for the tip!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ugh this sucks, I hate limits. Luckily, I'm far from reaching it, but the day it comes it's going to be a huge hassle.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice tip. Didn't realise there was a limit. Might have to do a bit of a purge. Of course, you will remain on my follow list.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I had no idea! I appreciate the tip!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It would seem as if the system encourages pruning of the followers list. Perhaps an alternative system would be worth investigating...

  40. Unactive blogs make me sad...like the death of someone who's close but not THAT close

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm getting to the point where I need to do that to, as well as clean up my morning coffee extension. I hate it when I go to make my comment rounds, and somebody only posts once every 15 days...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey! Thanks for letting me be one of the new ones! I hope I don't disappoint! :-P

    ReplyDelete

  50. Thanks for the tip, I need to clean mine up some.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Huh. I had no idea about the 300 limit. I guess it's to keep from falsely following a bunch of blogs for views.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh, I need to do this soon. Thanks for the tip!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks for heads up! Going to do this now!
