Hey Local Bloggers: You're Off the Roll

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.

The horror ... the HORROR!

Joking aside, I understand. Every so often I look at my list and think, "Damn! Some of these sites aren't even working anymore." Plus, I start feeling bad when I don't add someone I normally read ... and hope they don't think it's a knock against them ...

Anyhow ... I totally get where you're coming from. It's all good TEH!

That’s exactly how I feel. As soon as I take the time to update the blog roll, it’s out of date again with dead links or I’ve left some newbie off. And it bugs me. So thankfully we have Spfldbloggers. I also think the best way to promote other bloggers is to link to them directly in a post of your own. I haven’t been doing enough of that lately either.
