Downsizing Again

I started blogging in 2008 and have been going strong the entire time. One blog led to another and another and another. Soon I had so many blogs, I couldn’t keep up with own myself.

Instead of making all of those blogs and sites public and putting them out there for the search engines, I left a lot of them in draft form. Nobody could access them but me. My intention was to fix them up really nice and publish them. That never happened. 

I have so many things going on these days, it is impossible to focus the way I should and to be truly productive. The last several months with more things to do added on top of an already full plate, it finally dawned on me that I need to get rid of some unnecessary things.

I started two weeks ago to do just that. 

-First, I eliminated several networking sites that I never visit or participate on.
-I deleted a couple of my Blogger blogs that were public but never got much public attention.
-I deleted six blogs from Blogger that remained in draft status and never saw the light of day.
-Then, I unsubscribed from six or seven newsletters I never read.
Yaaa, way to go dellgirl.

The downsizing is going well it has made a big difference already. Now, I don’t have to check on blogs I’m never going to have time to do anything with. I still have quite a bit of de-cluttering to do, going right now to work on that.


Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi - just came here to read your blog. I also have really too many blogs, and they have become cumbersome to update. Perhaps I'll wind some of them down - someday. Good luck with your downsizing!

downsizing is a continuous process...

Wow! You really did have a lot of blogs. I have just this public one on Blogspot. I have another one that is not made public that I only use to test things out on. Other than that, I have a back-up for this blog on Wordpress, juuuust in case something goes wrong.

I downsized a year ago and don't miss the accounts I deleted. It diminishes the online clutter.

Downsizing is always a great thing, Leona! I love that you were able to do that. I need to do it. Now you've inspired me. :-)
