Updating the Blogroll

For the last 6 months, I've really been trying to figure out what to do with my blogroll.  Some of the blogs I followed in my quest for C haven't been updated in over a year.  Yet, I don't have the heart to delete them from the list as I felt/feel such a kinship with many of them.  They helped me through such a difficult time in my life and in the off chance they update their blogs, I surely don't want to miss that.

I wonder what they're up to sometimes. I wondering if they're still trying, moved on, or gave birth to #2. I wonder if they're content with #1 and how come I can't seem to find my peace as well.

I have been increasingly trying to find blogs from writers who struggled for #1 and who are also in the trenches for #2.  After all, misery loves company, right?  This is a more difficult population of bloggers to find as many who are currently mothers just don't seem to have the time to blog, or have lost interest.  Should I leave them up and keep hoping they'll come back, or should I turn the page?


  1. I tend to leave blogs in the hopes that their writers return, and if they do, I can be there for them. I know for me, because #2 was mercifully easy I didn't 'need' my blog as much as I may have. I still love knowing it is there.

  2. I don't use my blogroll too much, because I use Feedly for blog reading. I do leave them alone, at least so far, so I'll see if they ever do return. I'm sad sometimes, not knowing how things turned out for them.

  3. I only delete if someone has pissed me off ;) but I use Feedly for blog reading so that only the ones that have posted a new post come up.
