Just a quick reminder – I’m going to be in Texas attending Netroots Nation until Sunday. As The Hold Steady would say: I couldn’t even have done this if it weren’t for you. Thanks again, guys.
But since I’m going to be busy with schmoozing with serious bloggers and hoping some of their smartness and traffic rubs off on me, that means there’s going to be a post reduction over here. For your sake, I’ve decided to limit blurry photoblogging and “look at how awesome blogging and bloggers are”-style onanism for the next few days to my Tumblelog, so if you’re into that sort of thing, look there.
Meanwhile, you’ll notice that I trimmed up my blogroll. I thought it was about time. A lot of the blogs on there, while good blogs that I read regularly, don’t really match the tenor of the site and certainly don’t need me linking to them anyway. Cruel and capricious? Maybe, but I’m pretty sure Kos will somehow bravely soldier on without a slot on my blogroll. Other blogs just haven’t been updated in a month or so, so I figured that they’re inert by now.
I also added the “Friends of the Blog” category for people who A) I know personally, B) exist in the same vague corner of the blogosphere as I do, or C) have had some back-and-forth linking with. Or, D) just because. This is my small way of emphasizing that this blog is part of a blogging community, and relies on information gleaned from a lot of other very good blogs out there. A lot of those blogs aren’t Daily Kos, and I’m sure would appreciate some extra traffic or commenting, so feel free to show some love.
