Time has come to drop some blogs..............


It was time for me to go over the blog and do something that is never very easy to do.....I have had to preform this function in past and never looked forward to it. The time came to look through the blogs on my blog list and remove the ones that have been dormant for some time. As I went through the blogs I had noticed that some were without any activity for more than a year. I felt these ones for one reason or another were no longer functioning. It ended up I only had to drop about 3 blogs but it gives me more room to add active blogs. I can understand how workloads, family and sometime health problems can lead to a blog going stagnate. One thing I am guilty of is not changing my blog layout now and then to give it a new and fresh look. I think in the 3 years the blog has been up and running it has had....maybe 2 makeovers!! I should pay more attention to this as well as adding and or refreshing up the pages as well.

  1. My blog has had the same layout for years, as has my website. Fortunately I don't think hams are too fussy about appearances. There are far worse ham homepages out there!

    1. Good morning Julian, well that good to hear as I just don't seem to have the time....just adding another thing to the to do list will have me dropping something else that needs to be done.

  2. Hi Mike, I change my blog layout every few months. And I will remove sites from my blogroll after 1 year of inactivity. I will keep the list up to date. 73 Paul

    1. Top of the morning Paul, in my comment above to Julian I went over how it's hard for me to find the time to change things up design wise BUT keeping it current is very important to me and that is were I have to start find some time.

  3. Hello Mike, if you want to change the lay-out it means you're probabely not satisfied with it? I think everyone should decide for themselves changing the design or not. Yours is really nice I think, different then others. I also removed blogs from my blogroll and add a lot more. I will review my blogroll every december to start fresh every year. 73, Bas

    1. Good evening Bas, well the bands are very hard to work this evening and it was time to shut the radio down and check out the blog.....you have a good point as my dad said if it's not broke then don't fix it.
      Have a nice weekend
