See all those links over there on the sidebar? Neatly grouped into people I’ve met (Tasty Cookies), people I want to meet someday (Chewy Cookies), and knitters – because knitters are fabulous and deserve a category all their own? Well, I’m really weird about deleting links. Some of those sites I’ve had links going to for over 8 years. Whether I’ve met them in person or not, I consider them friends. So to remove them from the blogroll just feels wrong. They are the blogs that have helped me get through some low times in my life, and the people that have celebrated so many joys with me.
But I had to come to terms with the fact that some of them are just gone. No longer blogging. The links are dead. And there were others who are very important to me that needed to be added, because they weren’t there at all.
So I deleted links. I’m added in some new ones. I changed ones that I knew had moved. I’m nowhere near done, but I’m doing it in alphabet groups. While doing this and thinking about people that have influenced me, I’m realizing that I miss some aspects of my old blog. I’m going to go back to blogging about whatever is going on in my life. I don’t know when that stopped — but I want it back. I hope you’ll stay along for the ride.
Oh, and if you’re not listed on my blogroll but think I should be reading your site – leave a comment. I would love to add you to the list.
