I subscribe to some 400+ RSS feeds in Google Reader, which means that most of the time the number of unread items remains safely above the “1000+” level that is the maximum reported, and I usually have unread items dating back at least a couple weeks or more at all times.
However, there are occasions where I actually go through and clean out my unread-items (not by reading them all, mind you, but primarily by scanning the post titles from this or that blog or category of blogs, reading maybe 0.5% of them, then hitting ‘mark all as read’). Today is one of those times: my Google Reader is now empty. At least for the 2-3 hours it’s inevitably going to take to fill it back up to 1000+.
Now what shall I do?
