Hi Shanta, So true, sometimes the sheer number of feeds can make you feel lost. Very interesting, searching through the feeds will save some time. Like you I too use feeds for passive notification sometimes, I think update notification is one of the big advantages of feeds.

An interesting article, Abhijit (one of many, I might add). I've been noting how my use of RSS has changed over the last 2 years or so. In the beginning I used feeds as a way to manage my blog reading (because blogs were the primary feed providers) and my reading list expanded almost exponentially as blogging became more popular. I don't really use feeds as a way read anymore. Rather I try to use them as a way to limit what I read by scanning headlines or as a passive way of being notified of changes. So I subscribe to a weather feed, my travel plans feed, my favourite magazines, journals and authors (only to notified of their next issue). One technique I would be interested in trying is pooling the OPMLs of my favourite authors, and then searching rather than scanning the whole unruly mess for keywords. It's so easy to be overwhelmed and distracted by volumes of reading when you discover feeds and aggregators; now I am interested in finding ways to read less (but better).
