I’ve had to move all my bookmarked blogs from Bloglines, which is shutting down. I’m not surprised, it’s been not working properly for some time. I ‘exported’ them in one go, but it made me look at them – there are an awful lot of blogs which I’ve read for ages but don’t have any particular relationship with, and I think that some of them are going to have to go. I keep adding a few but not removing any and I haven’t caught up with all posts for a long time.
I don’t mind if someone whose blog I read and comment on doesn’t visit here, and some people rarely leave comments anyway and that’s fine. Though there are a few bloggers who complain when they receive fewer comments/readers than they used to, but never see it from the other side – that is, that if it isn’t reciprocal, they can’t really complain. Plenty of people whom I’ve followed for ages have never given any indication that they return the favour – not that they have to, but one comment would be polite, I think. I dunno, maybe I’m getting a bit of a stickler in my old age (just had a birthday, you know, a year older than last week).
Anyway, I’m starting to jettison some blogs. I think I’m going to have to come down to about 100. I can cope with that. No one who’s a friend, of course. Even if we don’t chat often.
