The increase in inactivity also brings the annual expansion of the Troutrageous! Blogroll Quarantine (TBQ). For those not in the know, I maintain a very generous blogroll on the right hand side of my blog. (Not in already and want in, drop me a note HERE for consideration).
Anyway, the rules are that once in the blogroll if you don't write a blog post in 3 months, you are relegated to the TBQ all the way at the bottom of the page until you write a new post. Don't write a new blog post in 6 months, you're out of the quarantine and booted from the blogroll pretty much for good.
During the spring and summer months, when people are out and about and fishing, the TBQ might contain 3 or 4 blogs at one time. This winter, much like many folks' waistlines, it has expanded to a maximum of 18 different blogs. That number's a bit smaller at the moment, as some recently did new postings and others were removed due to extreme inactivity. Today, it stands at 12 blogs.
I present the dirty dozen.
Fortunately, just today, 2 blogs wrote new posts and are now back in the general blogroll population. Those fortunate souls being American Sakasa Kebari & Casting Around (which also has a new "look"), so check them out and perhaps leave a comment at their place when you get a chance. It'll probably encourage them to write more.
As for those other 12...if you're not dead...what's up?
I think I know what's going on with a few, but I only ask because I'm a fan of your work.
