After very little thought, I impulsively deleted the blogroll. Tim has been on my case for about six months now that it needed to be trimmed, and at some point I have to face facts- a not insignificant portion of our blogroll was dead. And I don’t mean dead links- I mean dead bloggers. Ex-bloggers. Bloggers who have ceased to exist.
I then decided to try and trim it, but it had become such a mangled mess of names and links I didn’t remember that I decided to just delete the whole damned thing. Over the course of the next few weeks we will build the links back up, so if you are not on there and feel you should be- that is what has happened. Don;t get your knickers in a twist- if I think you are interesting you will make it back up there.
However, being on the blogroll may no longer be a good thing. I have four new categories (and this I did put some thought into). The categories are:
Blogs John Reads
Blogs Tim Reads
Blogs We Both Read
Blogs We Monitor and Mock as Needed
If you see anything that is obviously missing, throw it in the comments. Otherwise, bear with us as we rebuild the list.
*** Update ***
Apparently I have botched the entire blogroll. Way to go, Tim. Couldn’t leave well enough alone, could you, and you pressured me until I did something rash. Does anyone know how to code WordPress websites?
*** Update #2 ***
SERIOUSLY. Does anyone know how to work with WordPress? My other guru seems to have died (or is no longer answering my email).
