Newbies and News

First of all, I wanted to let ya'll know that I wrote BlogRolling to see what was up with the updates not showing as new and here is what they wrote:

We are currently working on a new version of BlogRolling with updated features and some fixes to commonly encountered problems, such as pinging and some formatting issues.

We don't have a set timeframe as to when those fixes will be released, but they are being actively developed.

You can check our peer support forums at http://forums.blogrolling.com for help, though we are looking into your issue and expect it to be resolved as soon as possible. If you have any more questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Regards,
Beenish M.


So, it appears it's just a waiting game until they have their side figured out.

Now, on to some newbies.

Clean Up Time

Our issue with blogs not moving to the top of the list seemed to have occurred when we reached the 200 blog mark, which has prompted me to try and clean the place up to see if that helps. Not sure if it will or not yet but, I figure it's worth a try and it needs to be done anyway.

This is always a tough thing for me to do because removing blogs is not what this is all about, but blogs that aren't updated isn't what it's about either. I usually go back about 6 months however, this time, I only removed blogs that haven't been updated beyond February of this year. I've also removed any broken links, of course. In addition, any blogs that are only open to invited readers have been removed as well. This is a public list after all and if the owners of these blogs do not wish their blogs to be public, why publicize them right?

Anyhoo, here's what's been removed. As always, if you are the owner of these blogs and are updating again, please email me and I'll add them back right away!

Phew. That's done and we're now left with 154 blogs. Lets see if the updates work. If not, at least our list has been cleaned; something I've been wanting to do for a while. It'll be January when I do it again so if you haven't posted in a while, be sure to do so.

Have a great day!

A Newcomer

Hey folks. Not a lot of emails coming my way lately for new additions but, there is one new update listed below. If you know of any NL blogs or blogs from people from the rock, be sure to pass along this site to them eh?

I've also updated a couple of previous listings to reflect their new URL's (Like Meeker on Media which has been picked up by the telegram. Congrats on that!)

Anyway, here's sole new addition for this update.

New Blogs... and More

First, I'll start with the 'more'. Robert from productofnewfoundland.ca contacted me this week with a blogging project that I thought you'd all be interested in. Here's what he says...

Hello,

Just a quick note to tell you about my latest blogging project. Inspired by Sounds Like Canada and the New Seven Wonders initiative I've decided to start 7 Wonders of Newfoundland game.

The goal is to have readers submit some of their favourite, must-see places and events from around the province. When the submission period is over I'll set up a voting page and we can determine the top seven favourites.

I'd like to invite you to participate and to encourage you to help spread the word...

Thanking you in advance,

Robert


So, go ahead and check that out! The direct link to the project can be found here. I've also added it to the BlogRoll for the duration of it's existence.

There's also a few other new additions to the list which are as follows:

A mention in The Express

So, I found out today that Geoff Meeker mentioned the Newfoundland and Labrador BlogRoll in a an article about blogging in the latest edition of The Express. I just finished reading it and thought it was pretty neat. Great article too.

If you have adobe acrobat installed, you can check out the digital issues here: http://www.theexpress.ca/pdf/express022207.pdf

Cleanup Time

Well, it's sad to see all these blogs go but, cleanup was definitely necessary, so it seems. I'm removin' 25 blogs today, which still leaves us with 157 blogs. Most that I've removed are dead links but I'm also removing blogs which haven't been updated since before June of last year.

If you're blog has been removed and it's back up, or if you have a new one, just contact me and I'll put it in the roll again. No problemo.

Anyway, this is what's been removed.

Happy New Year... n' Stuff

First of all, Happy New Year and best wishes to you all in 2007. I can't believe it's 2007, by the way. Freakin' crazy!

Second, sometime this month I'll be cleaning up the list again and getting rid of any inactive or not available blogs. So, if you're around and reading this, be sure to post something in your blog if you haven't in about 6 months or so. If not, it'll be removed. No worries, however, if it is. Just write me to add it again if that happens.

Last; here's a few new additions.
