Some Guy's Blog: A Blogroll Retrospective...

I was just thinking about how much my blogging output has declined since my peak in 2007. I looked at my blogroll and was sad to see how that's the case for many of my longtime blog-pals. So what I thought I'd do is work my way down the list and write a little bit about each person, how long it's been since their last post (or if their blog still exists at all), and how I found their blog. This way, it will be a long time until I run out of subject matter, plus, I may just drag a few of you out of seclusion in the process!

When I get to the bottom, I will continue with the people whose blogs I follow through Google Reader. I'm gonna try to plow through these, so you'll have to keep up.

Are you going to keep knowing everybody personally? Most of my friends don't even know I blog. Both of them think I just play Jezzball.

This should be a fun series Chris!

A wonderful idea! I'm going to try and comment on all of them

Great idea. I miss the "Golden Age" of my blog. But at least I have Twitter but I think that's about to jump the shark too.

Awesome idea! I've read them all and put several new people in my Reader.

I did, however, just notice that I never made your roll. That's fine, I'm not sure you can roll a mostly-defunct blog anyway.

Gwen- Once I started using Google Reader I stopped adding new people to my roll, but I'm going to rectify that at the end of this series. I think I met you right after I stopped.

Sounds like a really good idea.

I am going down my blogroll at the moment, try to catch up from the wedding / honeymoon time off, so it feels a little similar.

This is a terrible idea. I can't see myself reading all those. Oh wait, I'm nearly finished. You da man, man!

Thanks for the shout out Some Guy.

May I request a post from you about what it's like to be getting married? I so want to know what you're thinking about it all.

LOVE THIS SERIES! Makes me miss blogging.

Sweet idea. And a simple way for me to shop for new bloggers to add to my reading list. I just found this recently and I've been checking out a couple every day. Cheers.
