Here's the thing: I blog on my own time. This isn't work connected at all. So I do this before and after work, and I have other things that I do (oh, you know, life, plus some training and workshop gigs and writing for other sites and print journals and the like.)
So that's my pitiful excuse for why I am never as good as say, Kelly at Big A little a when it comes to updating my links and letting people know I updated my links.
How I update: I see who links to me (from statcounter, Google, technorati); I see who leaves comments; I sometimes get an email. If you think I have
deliberately ommitted you, absolutely not. It's just a mistake, and I apologize. I thought I added you and didn't. So, just remind me in the comments (or if you prefer, an email to lizzy.burns @ gmail.com, remove the spaces) if you are a kid lit blogger and are not in my sidebar.
If it looks like a blog hasn't been updated in, say, six months (and I don't know the blogger personally), I will probably remove the link.
OK, that explanation given, what I have decided to do, knowing I will never be Kelly-like in my updating and sharing, is to go thru and highlight a blog a day. (Ha ha ha ha ha .... anyone taking any bets on that? More like a few blogs a week.)
