Perhaps you noticed my new layout change…
Seriously, I love it. And this is me patting myself on the back 🙂
The new custom header is from my first tri- I am not sure which one is me, but I am out there I assure you! In addition to the header, I wanted a more (as Lacey so nicely put it) clean and inviting look. Mission accomplished????
And speaking of change….
My blog-roll also needed a make-over. A serious one. I took notice of the fact that my Reader and my Blog-Roll didn’t really match up. I like having a blog-roll but I think it is important to keep it cleaned and up-to-date. I had blogs on there that hadn’t been written on since summer! Although at one time they were blogs I read religiously and really liked, I feel like if you choose to have a blog-roll and promote certain blogs, you need to be fairly selective. In addition, because I am a bitch honest, I will tell you straight out…I took the blogs off that never comment me or acknowledge the comments I leave for them. You might remember this post-yeah, we all have our pet-peeves. I do not believe in promoting the blogs of people I have attempted to connect with who have no desire to do so and aren’t appreciative of my readership, especially when I have readers who do connect and are appreciative. I think of my blog like I do friendships…it isn’t how many readers/friends I have, it is the quality of the ones I do have. [Note: I am never offended when I do not appear on one’s blog-roll. And I totally understand why some people choose not to have one at all.] So, incase I don’t say it enough…I appreciate ALL OF YOU and really love the connections I have made (especially the personal ones that reach outside of the blog). I have made every effort to update my blog-roll but it is entirely possible that I missed you- if I did…please let me know so I can add you to the list.
What are you thoughts on blog-rolls?? Do you like them? Do you have one? Why or why not? How do you decide who to include? I am really interested in your thoughts.
TGIF readers- hope everyone has a GREAT weekend 🙂
