Mrs. Newlywed has just made the fabulous executive decision to nix her blog roll. Maybe some of you wouldn’t agree with this decision, but I can’t help eyeing my own blog roll in all it’s beastly form – knowing full well it’s out of date and out of control long. And then I think, “What does my blog roll mean?” I don’t use it to read any of your blogs – I have my Google RSS feed for that (never leave home without it). Do you guys actually check it? Does anybody care? I’m starting to think, maybe not. I’ve even got some of your buttons down at the bottom of my sidebar – are buttons the new blog roll? It’s certainly more fun!
So as Heidi Klum would say, As you know in fashion blogging, one day you’re in. And the next day, you’re out. Blog Roll? You’re out. I encourage you all to join me – we don’t need a blog roll to tell each other we love one another. Mrs. Newlywed has another great idea to replace her blog roll for good:
Instead I am going to try to do a much better job linking over to blogs when I see something interesting or funny or whatever. I am going to do a better job of pointing out new bloggers and bloggers who are just extraordinary.
Now who can argue with that?
