A Change for the Methodist Blogs Daily Links

During the two week hiatus of the MB Daily Links I have been pondering its future. I have been pleased to offer this service to the Methoblogosphere for quite some time. (If the old listings of links from the Methodist Blogs Weekly Roundup are included, I've been posting links for a little over four years.) But I am finding that it has become quite a chore to maintain this project day after day and week after week. I enjoy reading links from the Methoblogosphere and regularly do so during the week as I get a chance, but I really want to concentrate on my personal blog posts.

So, I have made the decision to discontinue the Methodist Blogs Daily Links in its current form. What I have done instead is to create a Methoblogosphere blogroll at the top left hand column of this blog. I spent some time yesterday going through the blogroll of the Methoblog and the links I have posted over the past year and a half. Currently there are 161 blogs linked on the blogroll. I included every blogger that has posted within the last six months. I will maintain the roll regularly deleting blogs that are no longer active over a period of six months or longer. I will also add new Methodist blogs to the blogroll as I am informed of them. Anyone who wants her or his Methodist blog included in the blogroll, email me at mbdailylinks(at)yahoo(dot)com. If you click the "Show All" tab at the bottom right of the Methoblogroll, all 161 links will be visible. If your blog is not included and you would like it to be, please email me at the above address.

In this format you will still be able to get all the daily links from the Methoblogosphere, and bloggers who do not post regularly will not drop from the links, as tended to be the case when I was posting them manually. Each Saturday I will post five Methodist links of note from the week.

I hope this works in keeping everyone in the loop on the writings and reflections from the Methoblogosphere.

Quite reasonable, Allan.

Thank you for all the effort over these past months (years?).

Happy New Year.

Thank you also from me. It was an enormous job and one which I'd not have done willingly, so I understand why you want to move on.

All the best in 2011 and I'll look forward to reading your thoughts!
