How Many Sites Are in Your RSS Reader?

I would be completely lost without my dear RSS reader. It's the second window I open every morning (after geeksugar, of course!) and it is solely responsible for keeping me in the know, on track, and organized.

This question goes out to the impressive 50 percent of geeksugar readers who use RSS readers — how many feeds do you follow?

I only have 4. Sugar alone gives me way too many updates a day. All the other ones are seldom updated type things, so that keeps it a little more manageable.

I don't have an RSS feeder and don't really plan on getting into this. I'm already innudated with enough info and would rather seek out info rather than have it flooding in on a daily basis.

I have an rss feed problem. I get them under control and then they spiral madly out again... =S

i just started using an rss reader, thanks to the post geeksugar mentioned about them, and somehow I'm already at about 60. However, several of them are from the same sources, just their own categories, i.e. newspaper sections. it's definitely easier to read rather than going to each site. one thing i've noticed in some sites- they don't have their entire content on the newsfeeder. i know that it's because of content being stolen, but it kind of defeats the purpose of having the rss reader when i have to click on the link to see the actual article.

Can anyone help me with an RSS question? Just tried out Google's and sometimes when I sign up for a new feed, it doesn't go to my google reader, it goes into an RSS folder by my favorites! I am confused.

I have 145. I have them organized in 7 different sections. @EvilDorkGirl I would recommend Google Reader especially if you have an iPhone. The Mobile Google Reader is pretty good.

166 at the moment, but I'm always adding or deleting (most of the time, adding) feeds. Some of them are daily comics or feeds to etsy shops, so they don't require a great deal of time. But the rest, well, my problem is I have an interest in a great many things. Most of my feeds are related to music, art, design, animals, food, crafts, DIY, beauty, photography and informational blogs/sites such as boing boing, laughing squid, futility closet, and growabrain. Don't even get me started on podcasts. Help. Haha.

Holy crap people. I have 8, mostly sugar sites and I struggle to keep up with it. I don't even think about doing more or I will be forever behind. Maybe not doing a traditional reader makes it harder? I just hate hate hate the RSS readers, but I love my RSS threads in my Apple Mail. huh.

I have 69, I clean it up once in a while, but I usually read most of the feeds under different categories on different days, so I don't get too overwhelmed with the articles.

wow, I have way too many! I think it's time to delete a few feeds that I don't read.

@EvilDorkGirl I use igoogle and like it a lot. I have 23 feeds I check a couple times a day. And about 15 others I check once or twice a week.

I don't know why, but I just don't like RSS readers. I want to, but I just don't. Maybe I should find one that's supercool and user-friendly. Any suggestions?

77. I've sorted them into "Favourites" that I read daily and then a bunch of categories.

50+. A lot of the gossip sites and green blogs update several times a day, so there's always something to read...

I have under 25. I used to have a ton, split into categories and such, but they started to bug me after a while (didn't read half of them) so I shaved it down to the select few I always read.
