Use It or Lose It

My house is a mess due to the painters. I can barely walk in my living room where all the bedroom furniture is currently hanging out.

So, unable to keep things clean at home, I'm, instead, determined to tidy up my blog--specifically my links to other blogs.

Can I just say that when I like a blog, I like to read NEW posts in that blog? Some of you have fallen by the wayside. I miss you. Where did you go? I want you back.

Solitary Dancer at Bare Bones Living is gone, though she assured me in a private e-mail that she is still tracking her finances, just not so publicly. The guys at Engineering My Finances and The Platinum Years haven't posted since February and July respectively.

At any rate, if you're still alive and haven't posted in awhile, let me know.

If you have a blog that you think I should be reading (and therefore adding to the list), let me know that, too.

I'm giving it a week, and then--

Ruthless pruning will ensue.

Don't forget me!

Unless, you don't like me any more? Boo hoo.

LOL! Of course I still like you (and read you). If you'd stop moving your blog around, it would be a whole lot easier to keep up with you. OK, I will put you back in when I do the complete revamp.

Hi Grace, I have just been so buried and I'm behind in following all my blogging buddies.

You are right I am tracking my finances. I added my latest count down tracker on my main blog. I was to be out of debt in 4 months but I tacked on another year to kill my 2nd mortgage.

Email me any time and stop by the new place. If I post finance stuff that's where it will be.

Well don't you prune me. (Even though technically, I'm on hiatus until the New Year.) I love when you come through and comment!

Not sure if I got pruned or not:

And we went through a painting project last year right about this time - pretty hectic right before the holidays. Good luck!

Kemkem said...

I like that...pruning! and a ruthless one at that..good for you!

Grace. said...

Relax, Ladies--no one gets pruned who has posted at least once in the last five months.

CTMom--hmm? I read your blog but for some reason, don't have you on the list--I'll add you in when I redo the list next week.

I know you read and comment but I don't seem to be on your list....

Hi Grace, I've recently started reading this one and think that you'd enjoy it too:

You can add me to your list too if you would like:

I get a HUGE thrill when anyone comments on my blog. (What a dork, I know). About 99% of the comments are from YOU Grace, so you see what a devastating loss it would be if you pruned me.

Sharon said...

Oops, so sorry but you'll have to add a new blog site for me! I've changed over and want you to come along!!! You have a lot of fans! Good for you!

Hi Grace,

I know you have commented on my blog before. I am updating my blogroll too and have added you.

Hope you decide to add me.

If you're in a planting mood, I've added you to my blogroll :)
