This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!

Despite me being subscribed to about 25 RSS blog feeds I attempt to read on a daily basis, there is one that I just decided to remove: Huffington Post BC.

The reason I originally subscribed was because I thought it would be great to get a feed of mainstream news headlines amongst the other Vancouver and international lifestyle, Marketing/PR/Social Media/business, environment/conscious/self-help, real estate, and film blogs I read. Huffington puts out at least 30 BC-related stories daily, so having hoarded all my blog reading last week for the weekend, I ended with about 150 unread posts. But the volume isn’t why I deleted it. It was because of the amount of negative headlines I thought were inherently in there that would be a waste of my time.

Just from yesterday:

Having made the habit of already reading mainstream news headlines each day before I start work AND the morning and noon news on TV in between, I figure I don’t need a repeat of them in my blog feed. Call me overly optimistic or naive, but I just can’t let this particular news feed get my day down any longer.
