saying goodbye to outdated links

i have been trying to change my template for days and i know i have links (esp on my blogroll) which dates back to 2004, when i first started blogging. gee! its been what? 4 years already!

unfortunately not all my friends since then are still active in the cyberworld. or then again, have already changed locations..

as much as i want to keep them on my list (maybe they decide to put their sites back) i have too much going on at my sidebars that i need to lessen the activity. aside from that, i have this pop up thingy that i cant seem to remove lol. its adbrite's fault. oh well i havent opened my account there in ages! so thats another thing to add to my "to do list".

but here goes the links that i shall remove from my sidebar. the minimum time frame for me to classify them as outdated is if they havent touched their blogs/sites for 6 months or more.

the Burning Question

i visited them one by one and placed a comment on their last post. (if i do not end up in a 404-page) some of them used to be really great blogs. strangely, a few tho ended up owned by somebody else or the owner suddenly felt its better to have a spam blog.

and i now remember how blogexplosion used to be so fun. now they have totally blown out of proportion when it comes to blog counts. i dont even go to the shotbox anymore. it's too crowded. but if you wanna drive traffic to your blog, thats one of the best ways i guess lol. anyways..

as Robert Smith sings "this wonder always leaves, the time always comes to say goodbye.. and this tide always turns.."*

i guess i wont easily get tired of blogging. let's see tho in another 4 years time?

Thanks for sparing my blog from the remove list, though I blog irregularly, hehehe. You've been blogging now for 4 years? Wow, that's quite an achievement.
I always enjoy reading your write-ups and viewing your artworks, so I wish you more years of happy blogging :)

i really do understand the gardening needed to be done... I am thinking of doing the same thing; perhaps just creating a page for links and taking them off the blog page altogether; and making this other page worthy.
