More On Blog Links

As I had to rush to get into the once-boiling bath before it finally changed from tepid to ice-cold I didn't get to put up the corrollary to what I was saying below about the blog list on the right.

I'm trying to keep this list short-ish because I've seen a lot of sites with hundreds and hundreds of links on them - almost competitive linking. A bit like saying 'see what a good net community person I am - all these sites are fab and I read them every day'. When we know you don't.

I've considered doing a 'daily/weekly/occasional' list like I've seen others do, but I doubt I'd be able to resist the temptation to start showing off and linking stuff I feel I ought to read, rather than actually do. Which you'll then have to read for me because I couldn't be arsed to do my homework...

This is all for *your* protection you understand!

(If you want a big list and think I'm mad, let me know in the comments and I'll diligently copy out the contents of my bookmarks)

It's always nice to see what other people find interesting, it helps to give me a better understanding of that person. But I agree, some lists I have seen are ridiculously long, and probably detract from the good stuff because they are so daunting. I keep mine reletively short, to attract people to read what I think are very good weblogs.

i have a hug list o'links because it's a throwback to when i didn't have regular net access and i couldn't remember every single url i might want to look at when i could get online. i hate the look of it on my page though. come the redesign and i'm moving them all onto a directory-style page of bookmarks instead. whenever i get around to it. :)
