Housekeeping.....Is your tatting blog in my list?

Since my five year blogaversary yesterday I realized my blog was in dire need of a good cleaning. I went through and deleted broken links and updated others. I cleaned up my blogroll and am left a bit saddened with a feeling of loss. Yesterday I had 222 blogs in my blogroll and today I have 123. I lost 99 links because they are blogs that haven't been posted to in over 6 months, or blogs that just "disappeared".

I'm not going to lie...keeping up a blog is hard work so I do not fault anyone for neglecting theirs...sometimes life gets in the way; I understand this. It just makes me a little sad.

I will try to look at it cup half full though...here we go...

123 active awesome tatting blogs WHOO WHOO YA'LL!

O.k. I feel much better now.

If you have an active tatting blog please look at my blogroll to the right and make sure your link is there. I want to make sure everyone is represented. It has become increasingly difficult for me to keep track of everyone, so I do not mean to overlook or exclude anyone...so help a sister out will ya?

Congrats again on five years and it's hard to believe how much little Miss P has grown.

You've got my main blog, but would you like to include my other one: http://tatting-origins.blogspot.com/ It's just history now, but will eventually have antique patterns translated. It may be too geeky for the average tatter but it's a good outlet for my obsession :)

Val said...

Yep, you got mine! :)

Jane McLellan said...

I've only been blogging for a few weeks, so I'm not surprised I'm not on your list, but I would like to be! My address is http://janemactats.blogspot.com/

I've been reading and enjoying your blog for a number of years, but have only recently got an internet connection that enables me to comment, blog etc

FIve years, congrats! That is a long time to keep up this much work and you do it so well.

Your blog list is also a wonderful resource of at least most, if not all, the tatting blogs out there. Thanks for keeping us all in one place.

Congratulations on your blog-aversary!

I could not find my blog in your list but maybe I overlooked it. I have not posted last week, and as I am on wordpress there are no pretty preview pictures in the feed, so I *may* have missed it. I don't have a blog roll there...

Happy tatting and shuttle making! I am drooling at the last batch of shuttles!
