I have a confession to make.
I do not read all the sites listed in my blogroll on a daily, or even a weekly basis.
In addition to pouring most of my efforts into what really matters in my life (my wife and children and my day job), I run another little blog, and write for a couple of other places. I’m more often involved in creating content than consuming it.
The blogs I have listed in my blogroll may have gotten there for any number of utterly arbitrary reasons. A scant handful of the most interesting and prolific make it into my list of actual daily reads, while a dozen or so I read at least weekly. I try to hit all of them at least once a month, and generally only delete a site from the list when they either let the blog go dormant, or when they simple aren’t worth reading to me.
The only other reason I delete sites is because they’ve done something I find high objectionable. I’ve just removed a site for that very reason.
Controversial sites are often great reads, but I have a hard problem directly any of the small level of traffic this blog generates to a site that misappropriates contents from other sites. Plagiarism is a big deal, and I won’t condone it or link to those who traffic in it.
And that’s the truth.
