Blogrolls

I like them.
I use them.
I use other people's blogrolls.
I miss them when they disappear.
I agree with Bitch Phd.

Like others, I often use blogrolls to find new reading material. I originally found this page from the list of links on Jill's blog (or it might have been the other way around, I can't remember). And I visit a lot of the pages that Francis has listed on in his margins.

I wish someone would do a study on "link loyalty." I find that I leave links on my roll long after I've decided to stop reading a page regularly. Also, I leave one person's link at the top because I'm afraid if I move it lower, that person will be hurt. I wonder if others manage their links this way...

Blogrolls are my way of recommending other interesting sites without limiting my entries to writing about what others are writing.

Heck, I hardly ever write about what others are writing about.

Equally important, I discovered many of the sites I read regularly when they linked to me. If they are interested in what I'm interested in, it seems to follow that I might be interested in what they're interested in.

Coincidentally, I spent about 15 minutes today updating my blog links. I deleted quite a few big sites, eg Informed Comment by Juan Cole - even though they are sites which I like or support, I rarely visit them and I figure they have lots of readers and links. I was more uncertain about deleting links to some local personal blogs by people who have commented on my blog. But I decided that as I don't really ever read their blogs and I don't set out to have a comprehensive blogroll, more a blogroll of people I read regualrly or sites which I am very sympatico with, then it served no purpose to have them on my roll. I did worry that those people will notice and feel hurt...

There are some blogs which I only visit via someone else's blogroll.
