Building a blogroll

It may be a little too inside for some of you, but I'm going to document the process as I expand my 'blogroll. For non-bloggers, your blogroll is the set of links to other weblogs, often of a similar philsophical bent or with similar interests to your own.

My own blogroll is, well, pathetic when compared to Doc Searls (about 120 in his "blogrolodex"), and I'm ready to do something about it.

I'll be adding a few sites a day to my blogroll and documenting here why I think they make the grade.

First up, I'm cleaning up my existing links a bit: One friend's page out, one friend's page in, with Schmoop.org getting the boot, and forebrain sliding into its slot.

Also out: SatireWire. Close a place down, and soon enough (okay, a couple of months later), even I have enough sense to stop going there....

I'm also adding a few links to pages that have been kind enough to link to my ramblings: Inluminent, Scott Johnson's FuzzyBlog!, and John Mahoney's dispatches from miami beach.

More to come....

<whew!> I'm still in . . . . .

Actually, this is interesting: I have been looking at the thicket that is my righthand column for a while now and pondering how best to organize it. I think this is something MT could make easier somehow: maybe have some modules that allowed you quickly and easily alter content that isn't a blog entry. There's always serverside includes, of course . . . . .

Thanks for the 'roll, but now my short roll seems even more anemic. Size does matter, sometimes. ;-)

BTW, I like your segration of the constant and daily reads. Huge uncategorized rolls like Doc's can be overwhelming.
