Blog Housekeeping

I've put up a page on the blog for my blog roll and am adding new blogs there that I have been neglectful in adding for many months.

The amount of blogs I have linked is getting ridiculously long to have it posted to the side bar I feel.

What do y'all think?
Keep the blogroll on the Home page, keep it to it's own page(linked at the top tab of the home page)or have them in both locations?
Cast your vote now. 8-)

I have also been deleting a few blogs.....ones that seem to have been abandoned and no one has posted new material for more than 6 months as well as some that have ended, like Judy's(where the heck did she go?  she isn't answering my email!?).  Morrison's has been taken down as well.  Precious left her second Frugal Makes Cents the beginning of the year but then last month she posted about another blog called Grandma's Frugal Days that she is enjoying.  Call me crazy but I swear this new blog is Precious too. 8-)

If you have a blog and I don't have you on the roll, please feel free to email me and ask to be added.
I am always happy to promote other bloggers' work.

      I have been SO WORRIED about you!!!! (along with the rest of all your online blog-friends, of course!!) Glad you popped on to let us know you are alive and kickin'. We care about you, so leave a message with Sluggy once a week, okay?????

      PS Sluggy, you are one of my "daily smiles" too, I just don't get the chance to post on your blog very often. Thanks for the Anon Reply feature!!!! It's the only way I can reply on blogs!! {{{HUGS}}}

  2. Hi Judy!!!
    And Sluggy - keep the blogroll on the main page. It's easy to find and I don't have to hunt for it if I even manage to think, hey! I should see who she reads?

  3. Whatever happened to Lisa Pie? Do you know? At least she left us a chocolate cake recipe.

    udy with a J, Just because some of cannot walk well enough to be active and work or are just crazy enough to blog every day does not mean everyone has to. I would rather hear from you once a week rather than just think you dropped into a black hole.

    That goes for Wendy at Little House in the Big Wood. I think she reads this blog.

    Sluggy, I don't care where your blog roll is located, but I am glad you warned us if it going to move from your main page.

    And, for anyone I am not talking to, it is because I cannot even respond on my own blog. If you don't take anonymous or url comments, I cannot comment. This is just killing me.

    Sluggy, sorry to use your blog for a message board...lol. NO, I am not sorry. Ooooh, I am in trouble now.

  4. I use your blog roll a lot to check if anything new has been posted by the bloggers. I'd love you to add mine. Christina1952.wordpress.com

  5. Your blog roll is actually easier to find and read on a separate page because I don't have to try to see it through the background of pictures. But, I can do that.

    1. I agree with Parsimony!!! Much easier to use on seperate tab and easier to read!!!

  6. Sluggy, I didn't even know you had a blog roll on the front page... ( hangs head in shame)... I'll give a big shout out to Udy with a J... I miss reading about your life...

  7. I think a page is fine! Thanks for having mine on there. You show up in my stats as a referrer, so it's great!

    I also cull blogs with no updates in 6 months, or otherwise abandoned. No use sending people to out of date or non-existent sites.

    Peace <3

  8. I eliminate a blog from my list if there is no action x 6 months. I also drop those which I don't think my readers would enjoy. Once in a while I am small-minded and drop one when i am constantly visiting and commenting but there is no response/thanks and no reciprocity.

    1. I am very bad about responding to comments, though I do leave ones for others.

  9. I really miss Judy's blog - I wish she'd left it up so I could go back and read all the motivating stuff :-( I keep thinking I'll see her post on a blog but haven't yet. Most of my blog reading is done at work and for some crazy reason I CANNOT log into my blogger ID there - google doesn't like it - but for now I'm logged in on my pc downstairs. (I also read blogs at home when I need to be cleaning (like now)) sigh...letting my late breakfast settle...

  10. I say do what you want with the blog roll. I delete the ones that haven't had anything written on them in more than 3 months. I figure that they are abandoned.

  11. Nice to hear briefly of Udy. And I need to do some housekeeping too; normally I clear them out once or twice a year, and the ones that are taken down are inactive ones as well.

  12. I'm still here. Just did an update sweep and started all over again:

    I do that from time to time.
    Hi Judy! Glad you are well. Think of you often

  13. Miss you Judy! I have to say when you didn't email me back I was worried. Are you talking 2 FULL TIME jobs - oh my! No wonder you have no time to write. Just know we care about you and miss you - just say hi once in awhile :) xxxooo
    Sluggy - I seem to NEED my blogroll in my sidebar to I can quickly see whose posts I need to catch up on. But that's just for me - if I need to see yours for some reason I certainly don't mind going to another page. After all, I will soon have some extra time on my hands!

  14. I think you should put your blog roll where you like it best. You can always move it if you change your mind.

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to do some housekeeping on my blog. No....I am not just trying to avoid packing.

Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
