Purging your Blogroll

One of the things which has always brought me a lot of pleasure is reading other FIRE blogs and seeing the different facets of the subject. It seems each blogger has a topic which motivates them, and they concentrate a great deal of energy on that topic. The result is some excellent reading and the opportunity to learn in-depth of a wide variety of topics.

However, as many folks know, blogging tends to be an exhausting process, and the ground is littered with bloggers who have not lasted more than a year. It seems folks start blogs to tell their tale or write-up their passion. Once that is done, they trail off, and the enjoyment that folks take in reading their work is lost.

As you look to the right on this page, you will see my “blogroll” of sites that I have found and believe worthy of further reading. Yet one of the tasks that has to be done, if the blogroll is not to grow too large, is the weed or “cull” the list occasionally. This can be done due to a fall off in productivity (not that many posts) or quality (no interesting posts). Some sites just stop publishing entirely.

It is often a sad affair, as the reason they were put on is because they have excellent topics and interesting writing. I try to do this at least twice a year, and recently culled a few sites (while adding several others). It is a personal decision, and not one that I take lightly. I hope that my blogroll continues to provide you, the reader, with a good list for you to check out on your own.

I hope you enjoy my writing and the writing of those I point out. Enjoy the rest of summer!
