Rules of Engagement

So I'm relatively new to the Blogger world.

I created a site a while back so I could share my life and the adventures of being a new dad. I've recently become more aware of this so called blogger community. It really seems to be a world of it's own.

Along the way I have developed some blogger friendships and some budding relationships. It's so hard for me to make any new friends in my line of work that I can't wait to meet new people on here. Who would have thunk it? God I think I'm turning into a sissy...

I've come across more and more sites that I enjoy. It amazes me how many people are out there doing this. I thought I knew, but I didn't know shit. So here's my question...

On my blogroll(which until recently didn't know what that meant) I have sites that I enjoy and some that are friends. Now, after developing these relationships and investing some time into their sites... If the effort is no longer there, ie. the content is no longer being updated at a normal rate. Is it ok to delete someone from your blogroll???

I'm sure it's done, but I kind of feel bad about it. I feel like I just decided to no longer be friends with someone just because we haven't talked in a while. We all know that's bullshit. When you see someone you haven't seen for a while, you always pick up where you've left off. Like nothing changed. True Peeps...

What is protocal? There are new sites I enjoy and would like to share with everyone, but I don't want to have one of those ridiculous blogrolls running down the side of my page. I'm not into making a link into a seperate page. No offense to anyone out there.

I guess the easiest way to do it would be to go onto those sites tell them to UPDATE THEIR SHIT or face deletion...

I dunno. Any thoughts?

I say this like anyone even cares about whose on my blogroll. Most of my hits are from me refreshing my page. Ha Ha...

I doubt you'd offend anyone if you're removing them for the...Jesus, this lady that just sat down in the cube next to me has an absolute assload of perfume on...now there's a thought, wouldn't that totally defeat the purpose of perfume...if you measured the quantity by filling an ass with it? I mean perfumes supposed to smell good right?

umm, where was I...ok, I doubt you'll offend anyone that isn't updating their blog. If they do get upset, they probably were busy macraing a pair of shorts for themselves.

The MAIN reason I have the blogroll is because those are the blogs I like to read every day and it is an easy place to find them for the stoopid like me. I only delete if the person quits blogging altogether and that has only been 2 blogs since I got the blogroll up. :)

I usually delete them after a month or two of non-postings. Real estate is valuable.

Track them on a RSS feed to about content updates; it's easier than going to the blog each day.

Ok just so you don't feel totally dumb in the blog world. What exactly is a blog roll and do I have one?

Furious-people drenched in perfume mean one thing...Don't be intimate with them.!!!

Scottsdale girl- I wasn't calling you out cause you have a HUGE blogroll. In fact you taught me the blogroll. My Tutor

Kiki- I think the French are whack...


Steve-good point. I think a month or two makes sense. As far as tracking them with a RSS feed... I have no idea what that means. I think I've seen it on other blogs. I'm with stupid...

Editor girl-We seem to have so much in common. You could be my sister. Oh wait, you are...

Scottsdale Girl said...
