Bloggety blog blog blog…

Monday, May 19, 2008

So, lots of you often leave me comments and e-mails asking me to be added to the blogroll at the right, and I'm having a very hard time keeping up. So, here is your chance – if you would like to be considered for blogroll inclusion, please leave your blog URL (or, if you're not a blogger yourself, feel free to suggest a blog you think I'd like) in the comments of this post. I'm going to do a blogroll update in the next few weeks and will try to take the time to consider the tons of blogs I've missed so far.

A few notes, while I'm at it. I like to include as many blogs on my blogroll as I can, but I have a few basic criteria:

1) I usually don't add blogs until they've been up-and-running for at least a few months. Too many blogs (including past ones of my own) can die out pretty quickly, and I like to be sure the blogs on my blogroll are established and going strong and not likely to end up having to be removed soon after they're added.

2) Same goes for blogs that don't get updated very frequently. If your last post was in February, you'll probably get nixed.

3) There are other things I look for (attention to grammar, editorial integrity, good writing, pictures of pretty things that get me all excited!) that couldn't possibly all be listed/articulated. Please don't take it personally.

4) Um, and if I add you to my blogroll, it would be pretty nice of you to add me to yours.

That said, I'm looking forward to finding some more good reads! Suggest away!

Hello Ms. Spinach, I just started reading your blog and I love it! I found you through ASJiNE, may it rest in peace, and I've been trying to get a feel for local bloggers :) Take a peep at mine, if you get a moment. It's not as posh as yours, but my grammar is good and I post neat (weird, silly, inexpensive) things frequently. Cheeerio,

Oooh, yay! I love your blog, I don't know if this is creepy (heh probably) but if I lived in DC I think we would be friends :)

Here's my blog, I'd love to get some more readers. (I haven't posted in the past few days because it has been finals week over here...)

And I'd really like to plug my friend alison's blog, she's amazing. She's just generally very arty and creative and wonderful, and her blog is really lovely to read. It's She also has some pretty hilarious side blogs that she keeps running!

Thanks, and once again love your blog!

I'm a UK style/shopping blogger, and over 27 (real age a state secret!). There don't seem to be many of us so I have rarity value :-)

I think I caved about the same time you did on the Sharpie multi pack, too good. You should try the Pilot G2 retractable ink rolling ball 12 pen set for an assortment of lovely colors to write with.

You are already on my blog roll, I'd love to be on yours. Thank you for your consideration.

I'm here to ask you to PLEASE take down the picture of the cinnamon roll. It's hard enough making it through my work day on Pellegrino, egg-whites and salad without having to look at a carblicious pastry dripping in sugary icing every time I upload your site.

Hmm, point number 3 is interesting. Your grammar is impeccable, but you often sound like a 15-year old. Don't take it personally.

Hi Betsy,

Here is our blog for your consideration. We update once a week.

Now, I'm off to get me a cinnamon roll ;>


pretty said...

I don't fit criteria (1) which I agree is a very sensible criteria, so I would not request blogroll addition (I can't remember if you're on mine or not either... oops) but if you would like to read a blog with attention to grammar and pictures of pretty things, it would be lovely if you popped over to my blog.
