My apologies that this isn’t a real post, but I’ve got a couple things I’d like to address really quick!
Firstly, and I know I never thought I’d say this, but… I get a lot of blog-related e-mail these days. And it’s kind of hard for me to keep track of sometimes. Now before you think that this is me saying “don’t e-mail me”, it’s not. I love e-mail from you guys. But I think lately a lot of e-mail has slipped through the cracks; i.e., I’ve read it and forgotten to reply, or I’ve opened up a link you sent me in a tab and then my browser crashed and the link went byebye and I can’t find it… etc. So I guess what I’m trying to say is: if you e-mail me and don’t get a response, I’m very sorry, and it’s nothing personal. It’s hard for me to keep track of all my e-mail. I do read everything, I promise, and I do try to respond to everything but I’m 99% sure that hasn’t happened, so I wanted to explain why =P
I do encourage people to check out my FAQ before e-mailing me though, those questions there are called “Frequently Asked” questions for a reason! *nods* Scroll down to the bottom of the “About” page to see them. Again though, I do love getting e-mail. Just wanted to make that clear. >.>
Second matter of bloggy business, if you are on Livejournal and want to receive updates from this blog on your friends’ list instead of a feed reader, you can do so here. I’ve subscribed to it with my own Livejournal account to help me keep an eye on any comments that wind up being posted to the entries over there rather than over here. Cause I love your comments. <3 Third matter of bloggy business, I'm thinking more and more that I need to trim down my blogroll. I fear that it isn’t accomplishing anything because it’s so big and unwieldy and intimidating that none of the links get clicked anyway. See, lemme explain something. When I started this site, I had a strict policy of “If you link to me, I will link to you!” but this site has grown far beyond any expectations I ever had for it and it’s simply becoming unfeasible to link to everyone who links to me, as much as I would like to. Especially when you toss blogs that don’t link to me but that I like anyway into the list as well. So I think over the course of the next few days I’m going to try trimming it down as much as I can. This isn’t going to be easy for me to do because I appreciate all the talent out there in the blog world and I don’t want anyone to feel left out, but I unfortunately think it’s necessary at this point. This also means that new blogs you send me may not wind up on my blogroll right away. I’ll probably make another blog post later regarding more details on this blogroll cleanup once I sort of come to a plan on how I want to go about it.
Okay, sorry for the quick sidetrack, and we will return you to your regularly scheduled hunterness momentarily…
