Don't get me wrong - I love getting round to the blogs but 'doing the blogrolls' is a pain in the butt. Have a quick look at mine and you'll see what I mean. Some of you have pretty large ones too [rolls, I mean] and I wouldn't want you revamping them because you might just drop me off yours.
They do need reworking though. Mutual visitors, those I visit but they never visit me, the deceased and dormant, the active - the thing I don't like is being unfair. The majority of my visitors read the blog in RSS anyway so how can we know?
Also, it shouldn't be a tit-for-tat thing. A person should be blogrolled because he/she is interesting, except for Bloghounds where I'm duty bound to carry the whole roll.
Also, I made a decision some time back that I don't like using the RSS because it doesn't give that blogger a hit. Only visiting does that. So though it takes some time, that's what I prefer to do and have a look round while I'm there.
How do you handle yours [blogrolls, I mean]?
UPDATE 13:27 - Gee, it's a big job, isn't it? Have to do the bookmarks too and the RSS feeds.
UPDATE 15:31 - Blogs done on Word, news sources now being HTMLed - don't trust Blogrollingdotcom any more.
UPDATE 17:24 - Have created a new blog to house the Guest Posters - going crosseyed here with the html.
UPDATE 19:04 - Time for breakfast - guest posters done on Word and now need to be put on the new blog.
