Fell Behind, But Now Cleaning Up the Blogroll in Time for Openin Day

With all the hullabaloo, I forgot about updating the Sports Card Blogroll. And with Opening Day fast approaching, I guess there is no better time to do it than right now. So before we begin, let's review where we ended up last month. When last we updated the blogroll, we were down to 311 blogs. We gained six blogs this month, bringing our total of active blogs to 317. But there are a number of blogs that haven't been updated since the baseball season ended, so it is now time to send them to the inactive section of the sidebar. The blogroll says goodbye to the following blogs:

We just set a record for infamy. Fifteen blogs are being removed from the active blogroll, bringing us down to a now scary 302 active blogs (a net loss of -9). Has the blogosphere reached its peak? Have we over-expanded? Are there too many of us writing about the Hobby we love? The answer to all three is a resounding NO. But based on the last two months, it's definitely not looking pretty. Hopefully with the 2011 MLB season coming upon us, there will be more blogs to add to the big blogroll.

As a medium, we are starting to gain acceptance in the mainstream. In fact, a certain blogger was discovered based on an article he wrote and is now a big hit in Tampa (okay, so my ratings didn't spike, but a lot of people in Florida have now read my blog and know that Eric Rasmussen's 1981 Topps card was incorporated in the design of the show last night).

So please, I am begging, pleading, imploring...if you have a blog that's not yet on the Sports Card Blogroll, please send me a line at bdj610@hotmail.com and let me know about it. If your blog hasn't been active in a while, and you're itching to get back into the swing of things, let me know about it as well. If you're a blogger who has been adding new blogs to your own blogroll, send me a link to it as well.

The more blogs there are writing, reporting, reminiscing about the Hobby of Sports Card Collecting, the more information that can be shared, assimilated...and who knows, a certain card blogger can get some trades going (a want list is in the works).
