So what have I done about it? I've made myself a spreadsheet. Yes, a spreadsheet I hear you exclaim. This girl is clearly studying for a Psychology degree and has been drilled in statistics to within an inch of her life. That and she is quite obviously a geek and proud of it. What can I say? I love a good spread sheet, I think they're pretty.
What's in my spreadsheet? Well, there's the date I last reviewed that particular blog's place in my blogroll, it's name obviously, the category I've filed it under in my bloglovin' feed and which social networks it's a member of, complete with usernames. It's a mini blogland database if you will. I'm thinking of making a blogroll mark 2 to include ravelry and etsy/folksy shops as well and maybe a bit of colour coding. With the help of my trusty spreadsheet I shall be able to keep an eye on the blogs I read, and hopefully weed a couple out from time to time?, and be an all-round more organised and happy bunny.
See - I told you it was an illness! Some people collect teapots, some collect anything with a frog on (Grandma) and some people collect small model elephants (Great Aunt Gendy). It appears I collect blogs. Well I suppose there are worse things to collect, at least they don't take up any physical space, only virtual, and they require little to no dusting...
Ok, well maybe I haven't really managed a clear out, but I have at least created some order. That's enough to keep me happy for now. And maybe some of the contents of that little spreadsheet of mine will make it into a little blogroll page in my navigation bar. Maybe. At some point in the future.
Anyone else fancy coming clean about how many blogs they read, Blog Readers Anonymous style? All are welcome, no matter how shocking the revelation.
Edit: I've just realised that Blog Reader's Anonymous' acronym would be BRA. Haha, I rather like that. Perhaps that's an idea for a regular feature for some time in the future?
