“Declutter” is the buzz word here, with our house on the market. It isn’t easy when one of you is an inveterate hoarder. I’ll just say that while all my books, ornaments and anything considered unnecessary are carefully packed away in cartons, (never to be seen again), there is no evident decrease in the boxes of tools, tins of paint, battery chargers for tools we no longer have and objects whose purpose is no longer known, but might come in handy one day. 🙂
While I was at it, I thought the blog deserved a facelift, and have tried to make it more streamlined.
One of the things no longer there is a blogroll. The reason is simple. From my stats, I can see that nobody ever clicks on any of the blogs. Therefore it is not serving the purpose for which it is intended, i.e. to recommend other bloggers.
Snitchim.com reports that there are probably some 250 million blogs out there. Although many of them will be dormant/stagnant, that still leaves a mountain of blogginess to climb. If I can find the time to read even 5 every day, I think I’m doing well, so the chances I’ll click on their blogrolls are very slight.
So instead of sticking links into a blogroll, I’ll flag up some of the blogs that I follow, covering, politics, humour, photography, writing, French life, health, cooking, and hope to introduce readers to other blogs they might enjoy.
Here are ten reasons John Do doesn’t like blogrolls. Interesting, yes?
