How Do I Get On Your Blogroll?

Ok bloggers, help me out. Do you ever feel a sense of guilt when you edit your blogroll? I totally do! I feel terrible when I take a name off the list so I rarely do. And when I add names to the list I feel so cliquish (and my super-social mama would not want her daughters to be cliquish!) So lest anyone should question who is or is not on my blogroll here is MY criteria - if you're someone who comments on my blog often (doesn't have to be every post, just enough so I know you still check in with me) then I'll do the same on your blog. If you're someone who I keep up with on my board or via email, then I'll add you to my list so I can be sure to hop over to your blog regularly. That's it. There are a few blogs I stop by every so often but I've had little to no interaction with the authors so I don't put them on my blogroll. They're still strangers to me (even if I do have access to read all about them....weird). So that's it. That's who is on my blogroll - people I interact with, some are family and friends I've known for years. Some are internet friends I've known for years. Some are new friends and acquaintences. But all are people I've "met" and enjoy checking in with to see how their lives are going. And I'm certainly not exclusive so if you want to be added, you now know how. = )

This has been a public service announcement.

Too funny! And, btw I am not commenting so you will add me to your blogroll. ;) When I read comments on blogs I read everyday, I like to go read the blogs of the commenter(s)...make sense? Anyway, that is how I found your blog and then I link to blogs from your comments, etc, etc... My blog reading never ends!

Shannon Bieger said...

LOL Alyson - damn her for having a name that starts with AI!! And you're not just on the list because we're related. You're also my friend and you're witting and intelligent and talented and I like to see what you're up to!

LOL no Jewels, no one complained because that would be quite pitiful. I just felt the need to explain myself. You know me....I just like to blah blah blah so that I'm all up front about everything! I was updating my list today and I thought "I'm gonna post my reasons."

Hi Shannon, you are on my blogroll at http://scrapbooklady.blogspot.com/ because I add scrappers as I find them on 2Peas. I like to have a big list of scrappers so my visitors can get a feel for the many types of blogs there are. If want to be removed from my list just let me know at any time. If you would like to you can add me to your blogroll, but no pressure! :)

Mom said...

I'm not on anyone's blog roll because I have no idea how to do that stuff....I am just your mom and I comment occasionally because I think you are quite talented and creative..... ok I am prejudice... I love you!

Gina said...
