Blogroll Housekeeping: Your Input?

Stephanie

A short while back, I asked our readers for suggestions for relevant links to add to our blogroll. Before adding the new, I performed a bit of housekeeping on the blogroll because it is important to us that you are provided with quality content. A few links needed to be updated, and some removed as they had become non-existent or no longer publishing new content. I then reviewed each of your submissions and added a number of your suggestions and also two or three that I thought you might find interesting. (Such as: “The Well Appointed Desk.”)

When visiting the home page of Rhodia Drive, you fill find our “Blogroll” down the right hand side of the page and beneath that, additional links categorized into such sections such as “Art Journaling” and “Retailer Blogs.” I would prefer to categorize all of the links, but with some it’s difficult – even my own personal blog isn’t dedicated to just one thing.

My first question to you: Do you regularly visit the blogs on our blogroll?

And second, would it matter to you if they were in one long list or would you prefer to see them all categorized? As always, we appreciate your input.

  1. Just happy to be part of the blog roll. Thank you. Ours is just set up as “Blogs We Read” It’s hard to categorize some of them so I just arranged them alphabetically.

  3. Thanks for the culling, and I’m glad to have made the cut! Blogs that aren’t updated are a huge peeve of mine.

    Yes, I do visit the blogs on your blogroll, but many of them are on my regular rotation. When I see a new one, I check it out.

    I would prefer them categorized, but that’s just me. I really, really prefer niche blogs. When a blog is mostly about pens and paper and then it goes off on a tangent about food or kids or favorite TV shows or what have you… I feel like it loses its focus, and it loses me.

    I will be more likely to visit blogs that stick to their agenda (unless they are exceptionally well-written, well-photographed, or brimming with enough personality that they can get away with it – it does happen every now and again!), and only hit those that are in the categories in which I’m interested.

    But I grant you I’m a pretty finicky consumer.
