Imagine that! Taking a step back and removing oneself from the expected (organizing feeds into things like Friends, Marketing, Visual, Frequently-updated, etc.) had never occurred to me before. This works for me because now I only focus on a handful of assorted feeds each day rather than all of them; now everything gets read. Maybe I deal better with organization in the parts of my life that have lots of stimuli attached to them.
In either case, this part of my life is now infinitely more lovely, and I have no more stress and "mark all items as read" feed bankruptcy panic. Thank you for this bit of genius, guys.
