City Slicker Mom brought up a very interesting issue in her post today. What is proper blog roll etiquette? You know the list of blogs you have on your side bar. Do you link to the ones you really like? Do you link to anyone that links to you? Do you keep someone on if all of a sudden you realize that their beliefs are not necessarily in line with your own beliefs? What if you delete someone from your list, are their feelings hurt? What if they are boring?
I am pretty picky about who I list, most of them are all daily reads for me. My new problem is that I am finding more and more blogs that I enjoy and I haven't been great about linking to them. The longer my list gets the less I will read on a regular basis. I have seen on some sites where people will set up their blog roll to be ever changing. This might be the way to go, but there is something to be said about having a super long list of blogs and supporting the blogging community?
I really need to set up my blogroll so that it isn't just a list of links, how long does this take to do? I would love to know when blogs have new posts on them instead of checking blogs over and over again.
What do others think about this issue?
UPDATE: I did it. I signed up with Blogrolling so we shall see how well this works. Stefanie says it is the greatest, so I am trusting her good blogging judgement.
