Of course I'm asking about blogrolls. See, I'm pretty sure my blogroll has hit a wall. It's always been on the long side, but in the last 4 or so months it's expanded by leaps and bounds. I blame the OBN for exposing me to so many great new (to me) blogs in about that same timeframe. It's an easy and convenient excuse.
|Blogrolls...hot outta the oven.|
I've always thought the blogroll concept should be one where you only post blogs you actually read and would recommend to friends. The proof in the pudding is that my site stats clearly show that some of my readers use my "recommendations" as an anchor point in their daily reading...clicking on a blog, then coming back, clicking on the next blog, coming back, clicking on the next blog, etc, etc, etc...
The only other "rule" I ever had regarding my blogroll was that if you didn't at least post once in a three month period, you were gone...didn't mean I don't like ya, just simply an attempt to try and trim the fat.
Well, I'm at a point now where I can't keep up with the blogs in my blogroll anymore, which is a shame because there are some really good ones in that long list. Also, with this blog's popularity sort of growing, I'm noticing more and more links to "Troutrageous!" in other people's blogrolls every day. To this day I'm still flattered by that fact, but posting all the reciprocal links I should in order to be a good Boy Scout is overwhelming.
There probably isn't a perfect solution, and I'm really don't expect to find one, but I'd love to read your thoughts in the comments section below. Thanks in advance.
