Given all the discussion of blogrolls, I decided it was past time for me to update the “Blogs Linking here” blogroll. (I’ve also moved it close to the top of the sidebar. Now does that qualify me to make observations related to blogrolls? Or do I need to change the format too?). So, the following blogs have been added to the blogroll, or updated with name and URL changes. I highly recommend checking them out.
African American Opinion Blog
African American Political Pundit
Daddylology (Formerly “Thou Shall Not Suck”)
How to Learn Swedish in 10,0000 Difficult Lessons
Make It Plain
My Left Wing
Shakesville (Formerly Shakespeare’s Sister)
Shining Light in Dark Corners
What’s more, for the next month or so (at least) I’ll make a point of adding more blogs as I find more that link here (and there are some I’m already aware of that need to be added). However, I’ll stick with the drop-down list because it’s the best way I know of to keep a relatively long blogroll on the front page. It’s either that or move it back to the bottom of the sidebar, which is apparently a no-no. (Or is it just a no-no depending on how it’s displayed?) Or find a way of displaying a random selection from the blogroll with each reload…
Also, I’ve added a block further down on the sidebar (Is it OK to put it there?) of shared items from Google Reader. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and potentially a great way to promote the blogs I read regularly. In that same spirit, I’ve decided to also bring back the 10blogs meme. I jumped on that bandwagon a while back, and fell off. So, I’m climbing back on.
Is there anything else I can do to help promote other blogs?
