My blog roll started out very basic and very short. Since I didn't know what I was doing, I started introducing people as they surfaced and, if they had a blog, I checked it out and then usually added them.
I like the idea of the people who visit here knowing a little about each other.
It works for me. The only problem is that the list has grown a lot. I'm delighted and I'll keep on adding and I'll solve the problem of too many names if that ever happens. I never expected this many visitors. Wow.
