I was a bit surprised to realize that the third Blogiversary of Mad Kane’s Political Madness is coming up on September 23rd. Of course, I’ve been blogging a whole lot longer than three years: I launched my Mad Kane’s Notables Blog back in September 2001 and started Dubya’s Dayly Diary on January 20, 2001.
Anyway, I figured I’d do a bit of housekeeping in anticipation of my Political Madness blogiversary. So I reviewed my blogroll to look for links that needed updating. And in the process, I made a disappointing discovery. Not only have several bloggers de-linked me, but dozens of active blogs are still linking to my long-defunct Notables Blog.
Now even if those bloggers failed to get my email requests for a blogroll update, you’d think they might have visited my site at least once in the last three years, noticed my relocation, and adjusted their blogrolls.
The upshot of all this is that, with a few exceptions, I’ve de-linked any blog that either has de-linked me or that still links to my Mad Kane’s Notables.
Of course, I’ll be happy to re-link anyone who notifies me (in an email or in my comments) that my Mad Kane’s Political Madness is on their blogroll.
No post would be complete without a limerick, right? So here’s my love-letter-limerick to those who still link to my obsolete blog:
Grumpy Blogroll Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane
If my link to your blog has gone missing,
Instead of complaining and hissing,
Check your blog and you’ll see
That your linkage to me
Is outdated three years. Reminiscing?
