Blog Roll or Blog Slice?

Blog Roll or slice

I have a question for all of you about blog rolls.

For several years I have had the same list of blogs on my “blog roll.” Yesterday I took them all down – all of them.

Why? Because I wanted to start over with a fresh list, one that more accurately and fairly listed blogs which I either visit or endorse.

However, how do I do that? What is fair? And for that matter, how many to I post a link to?

To be honest, I don’t read as many blogs as I’d like, simply because I don’t have that much time. Every once in a while I will go on a binge and do a lot of clicking, reading, scanning, and “liking.” I may even leave a few profound comments. There’s just so many blogs out there, and I can’t read them all.

So, how should I do this? Should I list every single blog I ever visit more than once? Should I list a long blog roll of 50+ websites, many of which I may rarely visit more than once a month, or less?

Or, should I just give you a “slice” of what’s out there? Like, what if I listed the blogs of people I really like, along with some popular ones everybody else likes?

Or, what if a “slice” of blogs consisted of those whose owners commented here? I could, let’s say, keep a “top 10” slice; the ones who commented the most (“likes” count half) would be at the top of the list, all others further down.


You see, I just don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, you know? I mean, if you own a blog and only post once a year, should I put you in the “roll,” much less the “slice”?

What do you think? Leave a comment, please (It may help your score 😉 ).
