It has been a long time since I last checked the links on my blogroll. I have made changes. Deletions from the blogroll were based on links that stopped working, links that redirected to a totally unrelated page, blogs that were blank, blogs that were password protected, or blogs that hadn’t added content in years.
If you own a website that was deleted and you would like it reinstated, you should probably include an explanation of why I found what I found when I clicked on your link. If for example, your link was dead because you changed your URL, then I’d be happy to revisit my decision to delete.
After those deletions, I am looking to add to the blogroll. I will be on the lookout for blogs that are Ohio-based and/or politics-based. North central Ohio, like the counties along the Lake Erie shoreline between Cleveland and Toledo and a little further inland, is what I consider my home territory, for I have resided in Erie, Seneca, and Lorain counties (Franklin County, too, but plenty of blogs cover Columbus). Huron, Sandusky, and Ottawa counties are of interest, too. If you would like your blog added to my blogroll, give me a holler (my profile with email appears on the About page). As you know, I identify myself politically as being right-of-center (even though there are those who disbelieve my self-assessment).
On another note, I was stunned to see that WordPress had begun to place ads on my site. I paid WordPress extra money just to keep my blog advertisement-free. If you see ads crop up on Buckeye RINO, I’d appreciate it if you would let me know so that I can investigate.
For social networking, I have been using just Twitter, as I find it least annoying among social networking sites. I once had Facebook and a few others, but I hated them, so I pulled the plug on them. However, if readers have a social networking site that they want to recommend, let me know, and if you really think I should return to Facebook, I will entertain your arguments (but make them good, since I’ll be difficult to persuade).
