Purging The Blogroll

I hate to do this but I have to purge the blogroll of Leftover Thoughts.

So, how do I begin to tell the story of how love ends with the links? First I’ll check the sites I linked to and see if they linked back to me. Unless they are superstars (my definition), or write like my favorite authors, without my link in their site, their links from this blog are the first to go. Sorry folks!

Some of those in my blogroll have not updated their blogs for more than half a year. I am not even sure what happened to them. Are they still on this planet? But I do hope and pray that they’re alright and not watching from the stars above. Those without updates for the last six months are the next to go. If they transferred sites, they should have at least left a message telling their fans that they packed up and migrated somewhere. A quarter could be tolerable but half year is too long. There are few sites that I'll exempt here.

The purging will start today and ends Wednesday. There will be rooms for new links then.

ako rin, i did some purging last year. one reason was that i just realized some of them just wanted a link back, other than that, walang interaction. this person doesnt read my blog, and i too have no interest or have lost interest in theirs (ang taray ba :D )

Lazarus said...

(looks at the blogroll, my blog still there? yes.)

some also have to go from blogroll.

Wil said...

hala! I wonder if i'll survive the purge. hehe. anyway, i also have some blogs on my blogroll i rarely visit. it might be a good idea to purge some blogs from my blogroll.

CM said...

huwah! I think I should do purging too. Hehe.

lazarus said...

zherwin, relax ka lang. your blog is still in my list. same as wil and CM.

Annamanila said...

I have you linked, do you me? hahaha anyway, would just like to share that i have blog buddies -- maybe close to 10 of them -- whom i have not added to my blog roll, for sheer laziness. Oooh, i should add them now lest they delete me ha.

jho said...

Agree ako sa move mo, maraming ganyan akong na meet sa blog comms. To think na ikaw hihingan ng link, ilalagay mo sila, pag check mo ala naman pala ikaw dun, Imbyerna!

Pssssttt, wag mo ako tsugihin, nasa blogroll ikaw lol..... Kung may panahon ka lang pakipalitan ang akong URL http://blackbaies.pansitan.net/
Kung okay lang naman po lol....

Me mga blogs talaga minsan na maiksi lang lifespan. Ako I don't have a blogroll, pero I keep my links in my bookmarks. :D
