I just did some housekeeping here in my actual house, and it looks like I need to clean this place up, too. There are blogs on my blog list whose titles I don't even recognize, and I haven't seen updates from many of them in months. The blog list vs. "follow" feature is another thing I need to clean up...I follow some blogs that don't appear on my blog list, and vice versa.
If you don't follow any blogs (back when I was hanging around here more regularly, there seemed to be an anti-follow backlash; I'm not sure if this feature is still controversial), then you might not know that the feature works something like a reader. You get a feed of your followed blogs, automatically updated in your dashboard. It's rather useful. But when I started following, there didn't seem to be any way to link your blog roll to your follow list, so you'd have to add new blogs separately to each. That's too much work. So when I start the clean-up operation, I'll see if I can synchronize these two features (I'm sure that it's really embarrassingly obviously easy to do this).
Since I haven't updated Twitter in months, the Twitter feed might have to go, too. I might change the layout and colors again. And maybe a new profile picture is in order...the Necco wafers were meant to be temporary, part of an old blog joke. Let me know if there are any new blogs that I shouldn't miss. I'll invite you all over when the renovations are finished.
