If you are a regular reader of this blog you likely have noticed some layout changes to this blog. With Mike Huckabee leaving the race I needed to take some of that information down… so I felt it was a good time to change the look. Clean it up a bit. I also wanted a theme that gave my trackback address by the comment form if people wanted to send trackbacks.
You may notice that the blogroll to the side is much shorter. I made a decision a couple of days ago to only have blogs who reciprocate links highlighted there. All of the other blogs that I like and read I’ve created a blogroll page for. Reciprocal linking blogs are also listed there… so you get listed twice, how cool is that?
I made this decision for a couple reasons – my sidebar blogroll was starting to get pretty long. Also, I think reciprocating links is a matter of blogging courtesy whether it is done on a sidebar blogroll or on a created page for links.
Also regarding linking to blogs, I do try to reciprocate, but there is some criteria I use for my blogroll either to the side or on the page (this is subject to change).
- I don’t link to blogs about blogging and driving traffic to your blog.
- I don’t link to blogs that about wealth development, starting an at-home business, etc.
- I will not link to blogs with pornography or other explicit content.
- I think the blog is interesting and will read it. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a daily read, but I am not going to throw links to blogs that I wouldn’t want to read myself.
Anyway, for the few of you who may be interested in that… there you go. If you read this blog and want to exchange links just leave a comment.
