I decided to FreshenThings Up

I took a page from Alexa's book, and messed around with my template, and like the sleek new look. I also added a few more links. I added Luminous Miseries, which holds the record for being on my blogroll the least amount of time, because when I checked the link to see if it worked, I saw Owen had closed it down. He has replaced it with these new
blogs, and I highly recommed checking them out.

I was going to delete a few links, as they are inactive, but decided to just put them at the bottom of the list with a # next to them. Who knows, they might come back.

Do you ever remove people from your blog roll? If so, why? I have been dropped, and it makes me feel as if I have done something wrong. Maybe if there are reasons that are purely practical, I won't take it so personally.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the new look. I am open to feedback about it. LMK. And enjoy meeting Owen if you haven't already.

I don't mind being dropped from a blogroll. It just means my stuff isn't working for someone.

I've revised my blogroll, but it's not because I don't enjoy the blogs that aren't there anymore. I just happened to decide that I wanted a certain theme to my links. So I focused my blogroll on that theme, and still visit all my old friends via bookmarks and bloglines.

Hope that helps.

I enjoy dropping by here! :)

I did comment on your previous post that I like the new you here!!
I do from time to time clean house on my blogroll, it's already pretty short and the reasoning that I only "really" read a few of them, and for various reasons. Mostly my own effective use of time. Not that I am a poor time manager........nothing like that:)

I used to hate it, but then I realized people had all different reasons for not having me on their blogroll, very few of which had to do with me or my blog! Like with me, I've often deleted the WHOLE blogroll because it would make it too easy for me to spend too much time on the computer. Right now my blogroll is only half of what I visit, because I discovered bloglines which is how I surf blogs I'm sure there are people mad at me! LOL But I don't mean anything by it.

Nice and clean. Good. No blogroll, no problem. I haven't kept one for quite a while now. I keep track of my reads via an rss feeder.

But you are sweat and I hang my head in shame because I just noticed your blogroll and who is there at the top, um, me. Oh how chagrin should have been my middle name. However, it is true that I don't keep a general blogroll. Obviously, you are in my rss feed list though ;-) for here I am.

I actually hesitated to bring up the "blogroll" thing , but for some reason it was "sniggling" at me. So, I am glad I asked, because Ginger, Amy, Ayekah, Owen, your explainations really do make sense. I always knew I was being silly, but now that I got it off my chest, I feel much better. Thanks, all.

renee - I like the new template. Easy to read and quick to load.

As for blogrolls - I've been dropped from quite a few in these last fews months of inactivity. I don't sweat it too much - I wouldn't be reading me these days ;-) - but it would hurt my feelings a tad bit if it was someone I feel I've gotten to know like you or Alicia. KWIM? I use bloglines myself, so it's pretty much just the blogs I actually read.

I like the new look Renee!

Linking on blog rolls does affect the TTLB system and blog ratings so in that sense it can make a difference.

You're on my roll!

Looks good.

I need to mess with my Blogroll, it's not been dealt with in an embarassing amount of time.
