Over the last few days I had a few minutes on my hands between organizing seminar appearances, Hunting Courses and the upcoming annual Ice Fishing Derby on January 18, 2009 held by the Nicola Valley Fish & Game Club to check my growing blogroll.
As time passes blogs come and go. Some blogs just disappear altogether while others stop writing and in one case the blogger put up an access block on her blog with a window popping up saying, “For Invited guests only”. What gives with that? It’s a fishing blog not a porn site.
After trying several times, without any success, to find out if the dead or silent blogs will be revitalized again I came to the conclusion to delete the links. It’s not a decision I made light hearted, since many of the blogs were some among my favorites and offered good writing enjoyed my many. But after trying to contact the bloggers with to replies coming back I see no alternative but delete the links.
There is simply no value to my readers in keeping links on offer that lead nowhere or to blogs that haven’t been updated in a year or more.
