Blogroll backlog

Time-out for maintenance discussion...

I've fallen immensely behind in maintaining my blogroll (see sidebar). In fact, I've fallen behind in maintaining the sidebar as a whole. I've been so busy with writing, work and life in general that I've barely been involved in maintaining my blog's health and happiness. Priorities...

(I won't even begin to talk about my inability to comment on anyone else's blog. Please don't assume I've abandoned you...I just have too much on my plate these days.)

In reviewing my comments, I notice a number of you have added me to your blogroll. If you have done so - or are thinking about it - please let me know and I will add you to my own during my next round of site edits. And let's not forget: a huge thank you to you all. Without readers, I'd be talking to myself.

Thanks in advance.

Your turn:
  1. Please let me know if you've blogrolled me (i.e. added me to your list of favorites).
  2. Similarly, let me know if you'd like me to do the same (I'm assuming so, but you never know.)
  3. Even more similarly, kindly let me know if a current entry for your site needs to be updated...basically, this is your chance to set me straight.

This makes two of us, so at the very least you have company. I've actualy stopped posting as much as I would like to in light of work and lack of inspiration. :) Still swingin' by though only that today it is, indeed, thanks to Michelle. Hope you have a great long weekend, weather is looking fantastic.

cheers

Unfortunately life does sometimes get in the way of blogging. Of course, if it didn't we might have nothing to blog about. Michele sent me.

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

You are safely ensconced in my blogroll, and I am happily providing the foundation for yours. No updating required. And I came here all by myself.

Kathy said...

Coincidentally, I added you to my favourites list this morning (before I came and read your entry). I'd love to be on your list.

Summer is such a busy time. Fun, yes but busy. Almost makes me pine for those long evenings in, staring mindlessly at the television or playing Sorry with the kids on the living room floor....almost.

Knockoff said...

Hiya Carmi! *waving* You need to stop stressing. We understand :) Sometimes, life happens ;)
I'm the knockoff formerly known as "my life as a knockoff bag." If you could, could you take that link out and replace it with my new, bit more anon one? knockoffgirl.blogspot.com. "It's a knockoff life," is my new title. I know, not very far from the old one!
Have a great weekend!

Christine said...

I am having the same problems. Summer hit and all of a sudden I can't seem to keep up!

Well of course I have you blogrolled - you're one of my favorites! :)

puremood said...

I have you blogrolled, but don't expect you to link me unless you want to :)

I do invite you to come guest blog on my site today... :)

P.S. no one sent me hehe

Tammy said...

I have you on my blogroll...but I'm not on yours. Poor poor pitiful me!

No one sent me. either, lol...I wandered here all on my own.

bmh said...

Done and done. You and I are even stevens.

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

i had you blogrolled on my other webpage and i've been too busy (actually lazy) to blogroller anyone at this point, it's on my list of things to do in the fall. you're bookmarked and i do try and visit every day.

Diva said...

Yours was included in the first set of links I ever posted, and of course it's still there.

Danb said...

Hey Carmi-

Thanks for all the kind words on my blog... I've had you on my favs from the beginning... and its nice that you want to return the favor... thanks man!

Zee said...

Hi Carmi - I've blogrolled you and would be pleased an honored if you decided to reciprocate. :)

And, for whatever it's worth, if you were so un-busy that you could blog all the time, what would you blog about? Television, maybe. Or politics. Or the state of the rivers in Africa. Ok, nevermind. There'd be plenty to blog about even if you had all the time in the world.

My point is (wait, did I have a point? Yes, yes I did), being busy is much preferable to the alternative, because it means you're out there living. And that's cool. :)

Valderbar said...

Oh, hi Michele sent me.

Here's a tip Carmi, use http://www.technorati.com/ to know who is linked to you. It's fairly fast except for some hours of the week when it's server is too busy.

Business in life is a kind of blessing. So are forced or self-imposed naptimes.

And with that I'll scatdaddle.

~Cathy~ said...

Hi... Michelle sent me, but I peek in from time to time anyways! I need to still add you to my blogroll... and you can feel free to add me too if ya choose! :)

CanEragon said...

I understand where you're coming from. My sidebars are out of control. I keep adding blogs to my bloglines and then i realize that I havent read any blogs in over two months. The internship I'm doing now doesn't leave much time for doing fun internet stuff. I'm so behind!

Robert said...

Hello (or Allo), Michele sent me!

Dlynne said...

Happy Friday - Michele sent me! I have "blogrolled" you. I'm still new to this, but came across your site last week and liked it - I hope you don't mind. Hope you have a good weekend - have to take the dog out........

amanda m. said...

I've had you blogrolled through bloglines for a bit now.
Found you through sxKitten.
I enjoy your photos and the little bits of family life you share with us.
Feel free to add me if you like.

Michelle said...

CARMI!!!!

Here via Michele tonight, but I do have you on my blogroll. Have a great weekend!

MissMeliss said...

I found you through Michele, and added you to my roll because I really enjoy your writing.

Would love reciprocity, if you're so inclined.

Mrs. Fun said...

I have thought about blogrolling you. Just haven't done it yet. i get sidetracked too easily these days.
Love your pictures :)
and i don't expect you to blogroll me. Just wanted you to know i want to blogroll you because you asked ;)

PresentStorm said...

I have had yo on my blogroll also :)
It is your choice whether you choose to blogroll me back or not ...I will keep you on mine regardless ..
I hope you are having a great weekend and I definately know what it is like to get busy with life and not stay caught up on my blogroll ..lol
Michele sent me this time ...

scrappintwinmom said...

If I didn't have a life, I wouldn't have anything to blog about, yes? Here via Michele's today!

Guppyman said...

Holy crap... I just realized you weren't on my blogroll... I think I may just add you.

Michele says hello!

Terri said...

As soon as my hosting company can fix it so that I don't get "Forbidden" errors whenever I go to modify my MovableType templates, I will be adding a blogroll and WILL add you! :)

patricia said...

I've added you to my blogroll (you've got a great blog); you can add me if you like!
