Um, apparently there’s some kind of raging controversy in the blogosphere about blogrolls (that’s the list of links to other blogs in the left hand column, somewhere down the page, for any newbies). It’s White, Male and something or other. Oh, and The Truth Laid Bear Ecosystem is Pure Evil. Bloglines is Quite Bad too (because it tells you how many subscribers there are to each feed).
I have to say that this particular hot debate reminded me that my own (whisper) blogroll was in a bit of a state. And so the net result is: it just got longer and More
Bad Mad Dangerous Thrilling and Profound than ever. (Sorry, my TTLB link is still there too, near the bottom of the left hand column.) A deep dark mirror into my diseased blogging soul.
Bugger, now I’ve turned on Sarcasm Mode, I’m having trouble turning it off again. Look: I have a blogroll because it’s useful, I’m keeping it, it’s not such a mess now, and you might even find something you like if you visit a few of the links. (But don’t assume that I love everything there with equal passion and visit them all religiously every day.)
It’s amazing the things bloggers can get worked up about.
