You all need to stop that blogging stuff

I mean, really. I spent 20 minutes sifting through my blogroll again today, like I do every month, and do you know how many I had to trim off this time?


That’s all. Four abandoned or off-topic blogs, and all the rest look lively and active. Ordinarily it’s eight or 10, sometimes 12. But not this month.

So either some of you promised yourselves to blog more as a New Year’s resolution (how lame!), or it’s just becoming more commonplace.

Which is either good or bad, depending on your perspective. It’s good, since it means FOSS in general (they’re not all Ubuntu blogs, you see) is drawing more converts — and vocal ones at that. That definitely can be a good thing.

But really, it also means my page loads slower! Too many blogs increases the time it takes to draw the page, and that’s no good for my customers! So everybody take a break for a month, spend some time playing Frozen Bubble or something, and stop typing so much. My sub-500Mhz museum can’t take all the stress. ;)

P.S.: If you have a blog and want it listed in the sidebar, please tack on a note and I’ll be happy to add it. And while you’re at it, submit it to Dr Small’s Linux Blogs project.

    Yea, I’ve been trying to post again after neglecting my blog for nearly a year. :D

    In my case, is not a new objective. I hadn’t had too much time to blog. I think I’m getting organized.
    Btw, if you want, you may add my blog to your blogroll :D

    Cheers mate!

    I’ve found a couple of your posts pretty interesting. I’d like to be added to your blogroll also. I’ve already added you to mine. Thanks!

    It’s amazing how this constantly keeps growing – no stagnancy in sight.

    But anyway – i love it and that’s the reason me too keeps blogging as long as i have the time to.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention, may I be included in the blogroll? Frozen bubble is fun. :-P

    I thought you were on there, but I’m not sure now. :| If you leave a link here I’ll add it. Your last comments don’t link to your page; I’m not sure why. (Usually the username in a comment on links to the page you enter when you submit. If that makes sense.)

    Well, my blog is located here:

    strange, it’s happening for a few commenters on my site as well.


  11. 11 Dr Small 2008/02/04 at 7:23 AM

    Maybe because they aren’t filling in their website in the field?!

  12. 12 nikopsk 2008/02/04 at 12:04 PM

    I’m logged in, it should display info…

    I’m a KDE fan and I blog about it. KMandla, you can add my blog to your blogroll if you’d like.

    (A rare comment from an otherwise silent reader of this blog. ;) )

  14. 14 Dr Small 2008/02/04 at 11:04 PM

    LOL. It seemes like everytime K.Mandla posts a blogroll cleanup entry, he gains back what he lost … and more! :D

    Well, more blogs come each week about the world of linux!
