Whorange You Glad You Remembered Whorange?

Looking through a long-abandoned to-do list, I saw Whorange. I had totally forgotten about Whorange! I somehow stumbled across her blog months and months ago, and made a note of it because I loved it, and I never went back. Now I'm so glad I did because she has the most interesting posts. Most design blogs have significant overlap, and I often feel like I've seen it all before. Not so with Whorange. It's all fresh, all new, all Whorange. It's so much fun too. Even though I'm not a big fan of the color orange, and she seems to have more of a committment to brightness than I could ever get on board with, I love the name, I love the eye candy, I love the personality. She's going on the list.

Speaking of the list, I fear I may need to begin a cruel game of "Survivor: Google RSS Feed Reader." At 72 sites and counting, I may have overestimated my daily capacity for intake of new info, forcing my brain into overload, and giving me tension headaches from too much read-scroll-read-click-scroll-click-read-scroll-click. But what to cut? My fun Fark headlines? My gooey Gawker goodness? My Limey Londonist lowdown? I don't want to miss out on anything, but I don't want my brain to pop either. For now, I'm putting all of my blogs on notice. No one is immune. A girl can only take so much.

You are weak! I have over 200 blogs on my list. The key is abandoning Gawker, though. That's what I had to do. I still check in every now and then, but I'm not constantly refreshing the page, and they're definitely not in my reader. Neither is Apartment Therapy -- too many posts.

Ha! I know, I'm an amateur, but at the rate I'm going, 200 is not far off. I don't even have AT on there! I think I may just put some on hiatus.
