A quick housekeeping post.  You may wonder why the blogroll page is gone and why the sidebar blogroll is shorter (or maybe not).  Let me explain.

I decided to get rid of the blogroll page because it received very little traffic and was quite frankly a mess.  I decided to place my blogroll on the sidebar instead.  Currently the sidebar represents blogs that link to me, but I will expand.

You may have noticed that it is shorter – I had over 50 blogs listed.  They are still there.  I have a “better blogroll” widget in my sidebar which just shows 25 (you can set it for however many you want) links.  When the page is refreshed it will show different blogs – pretty cool huh?  I saw this on Anne Jackson’s blog and knew I wanted to add it when I updated my blog to WordPress 2.6.2 which I did last night.

These links still count toward the Technorati authority of your blog if you were listed before.  I would also like to encourage you if you have a blog and would like to do a link exchange to e-mail me at shane@caffeinatedthoughts.com or comment on this post.  My three main qualifications are that you don’t have a blog that I wouldn’t want my kids to see (no explicit material), that it is an actual blog not spam and not just links, and while it doesn’t need to be a Christian blog I won’t link to blogs that denigrate (not disagree) with the Christian faith.  So if your blog is an “all Christians are stupid” type blog – don’t bother.

Also I moved my podcast back into my blog – so my regular blog readers can be “blessed” with it as well.  I did that mainly because I was getting tired of keeping up a seperate site for it.  You can still subscribe to it in iTunes or another podcatcher.
