Looking back at my old blogroll sidebar links

Back when blog rolls, in your blog's side bar, was a thing. I kept mine up to date with lots of interesting sites.

Now, I don't even use a blog feed reader. The interesting posts from my friends pop up in my social media stream.

Recently I came across an old blogging friend from England, Bloggerheads. He used to be on my sidebar. This prompted me to look at my blog's HTML code to look at who else I used to follow. I'd commented out the blogroll years ago. Keep in mind, I started this blog 11 hers ago in November of 2000.

Hey. November 30, 2011 is my 11 year Blogger blog anniversary! Here's my first month of blogging. BTW, lots of my images from the past 10 years are going to go away when Apple discontinues iDisk support. Not sure what I'm going to do about that.

I started blogging by hand back in 1997. ;-)

Here's the blog roll. Let's go through it together and see if we can find any gems still maintaining their sites. Leave a comment if you find something you like.
