I hope nobody takes offense to this, but I've all but eliminated my Springfield blog roll. I have three links left. One is to Spfldbloggers which covers everyone locally. There are too many new blogs coming and going for me to keep up, so just assume I endorse everyone on Spfldbloggers. Yes, I think some blogs are better than others and you know who you are. Still, it's a great group and I hope everyone keeps posting for years to come.
I kept JeromeProphet because Gene needs all the help he can get. Consider it a kind of a blog affirmative action. And he's the only one of you that knows where I live.
I also left Look Back Springfield because I'm part owner of that venture, even if I never post to it anymore.
I'm not a big user of blog rolls and I question the value of having one at all. Either way, I'm just too lazy to maintain mine anymore.
