BlogRoll Call & Roll Call (enter Power Ranger giveaway here)

Published by on

I’ve been humming and hawing over what to do with my blogroll –> it’s that list on the right that says ‘OTHER BLOGS I LIKE’. You see, it’s not really accurate, I like and read WAY more blogs than that. Essentially, if you comment here, I read your blog. The problem is … I want MY blog to be nice and neat (I don’t care about yours, so don’t be insulted if you have a blogroll as long as your arm on your main page), therefore, the list is short. I find those long, long lists in the margins unappealing, ugly even.

I have decided then, to have a BlogRoll page see the very top black menu bar … click on BlogRoll. A spot where a really, really long list won’t bother me.

blogroll & roll call

If you’d like to see your blog on this list please leave a comment with your ‘blog name’ and ‘url’. I’ll add it to the list. :)

If you’d like to return the favor, I’d really appreciate it!

Warning: if your blog name is ‘winter tires’ and your url is: (or something else commercial and similar) –> chances are I won’t be listing your blog.

If you don’t have a blog, but read this one let me know by commenting below as well. You can say, “here, present, yo teach, delurking, hi, I’m here, shy in Pennsylvania” … you get the idea. Just let me know that you are here! If you’d like to go a step further and be listed on the blogroll page as a reader you could give me your name and location and I’ll add you to me BlogRoll Readers section (example: Cindi, Ohio). EASY!

All comments and back-links for this post will be entered to win one of two Power Ranger action figures (includes shipping and handling) in my ‘Power Ranger Giveaway’. If you comment and blog about the Giveaway you’ll receive two entries (too easy). I’ll randomly choose two winners on December 1st, 2008 @ 9 p.m. –> make sure to come by and enter often.

Smile and I will take your blog’s picture for my rotating image blogroll. If you like, I can give you the code, so you can include it on your sidebar. You can set the number of blogs it displays at any one time.

Andrea · November 19, 2008 at 7:25 pm

Great idea…I finally did that too…put my blogs I read on a separate page where it can’t bug me! haha :) Anyways, I dunno if you have me on there…but I read your blog and I know you comment on my sometimes, so you must read it at least once in a while. ;) my POINT is…I’d love to be on your blogroll and I’m pretty sure you are on mine, but I’ll double check to make sure!

nice…gotta admit over at the daily burns we’re total snobs and keep a veeery limited blog roll, purely for aesthetic purposes (which reminds me, need to get rid of the nike+ widget…i stopped running like 2 months ago or something). this is mostly due to the fact that my husband is the ‘creator/upkeeper’ of it & is “mr. minimalist”. :)

It’s always hard to add links to blog roll. In the beginning you have to few but after some time you have to many ideas, requests ect. I know I had a problme

Susy-Q · November 20, 2008 at 6:57 am

I was so bad at keeping my blog updated, I don’t bother posting it here. But I am a fan of this blog, so keep ’em coming ;-)

I have to be careful about reading blogs off the blog roll. I have too many I read regularly as it is. Probably not the best use of my time but quite addicting.

Mom On The Run · November 20, 2008 at 6:43 pm

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I read your blog from time to time and love your writing. I would stop by more often and say “hi” but you know how it is, so many blogs so little time. I need to do a better job commenting and adding to the community.
