Cleaning Up Google Reader

I had 178 feeds in Google Reader.  That's a lot of reading but I knew that some of the feeds were not current and no longer posting.  I wanted to get rid of some of them.  I hoped that there was a way to do so.  There is.  I Googled it.

I found a web apps help page.  Basically, the solution involves using the trends section of Google Reader.  I won't share more than that because it isn't my idea and I want to give Chris K. his or her credit on the Web Apps page.

My Reader is now down to 140 feeds.  Still a lot but they are current.
