left biblioblography: SOME SPRING CLEANING

Wednesday, January 03, 2007


Some of you may have noticed, that links are disappearing off both the blogroll and the 'friends of mine' columns.
Presently, I am trying to streamline this blog. It loads a little more slowly than I'd like.
The reason some folks have vanished off the Blogroll/Friends columns, is that they're already blogrolled via the Atheist Blogroll (herein referred to as the AB), and it makes little sense (to me at least), to have them 'rolled' twice or more times (yes, we're still friends: just trying to be economical). I am unclear as to whether or not Google will index them once or twice (logically, it should only be once).
As per Mojoey (who began the project some time ago), I used this yardstick: if you haven't updated your blog at least in the last 3 months, I take it off the independent Blogroll. If you're already on the AB, it comes off (I've made an exception for The Friendly Atheist, as he contacted me via email).
For instance, I have noticed that the Martian Anthropologist (aka the Town of Autumn) isn't on the AB, and he updates regularly, so it stays on. Etc, etc, et al. Why Richard Carrier isn't on the AB, I have no idea. The same goes for Bay of Fundie, and Fundie-watch.

I realize that the AB is a work-in-progress, so I am in no way slighting any omissions: it's a big blogosphere, and growing exponentially daily.

Anyways, those folks are still counted among my friends, there's no shady undertones for it, it's pretty much cut-'n-dried. I'm just trying to make it easier for my readers, be-dee, be-dee, be-dee, that's all, folks.

Normal programming is hereby resumed. Please carry on.

So do we on the 'Some Friends of Mine' area have nothing to worry about?

MF: I dunno, how often do you update your blog? ;)

I expect to be listed on everyone's blog AT LEAST twice ;)

I've actually updated it twice recently. :p

I'd love to, but doesn't Google index on it once, if there's two links on 1 blog? I used to program databases, so I'm kinda curious.
Besides which, I think YOU'VE got the bigger readership: I should be listed twice on your blog, until my readership goes way up.
(Kiddin', hehehehe).

I know, which is why I winked.

it's a big blog world - all I can say is if you know of a good blog to add to AB, let me know. I'll do the rest.

Krystalline Apostate said...

Well, I think those items (except GII) in my blogroll are a bit of all right.

Krystalline Apostate said...

Hey, Mojoey, did you modify the AB since? I coulda sworn Carrier & Fear of Clowns wasn't on there. Or am I gettin' senile, or something?

RE joey

Good idea. I did come across a couple the other day - now if I can only remember what they were...

I purged dupes off my main blogroll who appeared on the Atheist blogroll a while ago. And I placed the Atheist blogroll above all the other ones I am a member of including my personal non Atheist blogroll.

I have promoted the Atheist blogroll over at Raving Atheists a few times, but for some reason a few bloggers still won't bite.

Choobus for example and his Chooblog.
