You know, I almost never look at my own blog. I mean, I write the thing, of course, and I get a copy of the posts on my Reader, but it's RSS, man, and I almost never hop over to the blog page itself to look at it.
(I don't read my books after I've written them, either, apart from a little segment here or there for a public appearance. Can't bear to see all the places I've gone wrong, I guess...)
Anyway, in discussions today with my favourite web-wizard Dale McGladdery, I discovered that more people than I are negligent of their blogrolls, and some are removing them altogether. I try to share the link-love with everyone I talk about in the blogs I write, but almost always forget to add them to my blogroll.
So, today I ditched the thing altogether. And I like it. Less distraction on the main page. I'm actually planning to re-situate all my writing posts onto my website (I'll keep this site for blathering about all the other stuff going on), but from now on, I think all the love's going to come from my links instead of my roll.
Fewer calories that way.
