About the blog roll

You can see what I'm currently reading online by clicking the my Bloglines list (on the sidebar). I did a bit of cleaning house there recently, and I hope I haven't hurt anyone's feelings by deleting some sites. A bit about my blogroll criteria: I only include what I actually read. I try to check out commenter's blogs, but I don't necessarily reciprocate links. Sometimes I'll add a new blog because of a post I really liked, but then discover that 99% of the content is about quilting, knitting, or scrapbooking. (All good hobbies, just not interests of mine!) If a blog does not have fresh content (new posts at least twice weekly), I usually drop it. If I'm having problems with a blog's RSS feed (or if a blog doesn't HAVE an RSS feed), I can't include it via Bloglines. (This includes most of the Homeschoolblogger websites for some reason.) And of course I reserve the right to drop a blog because I disagree with the author's viewpoint. If it's not uplifting, inspiring, or educational, I don't have time for it.

Hi Meredith - I just wanted to comment about the Homeschoolblogger feeds. I found that I had to subscribe manually to most of them.

Example: the Imperfect Homeschooler's addy is www.homeschoolblogger.com/BarbaraFrank

I entered the following http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/rss.php?u=

After the equal sign I put BarbaraFrank. I found that I could do this with most of them by just adding their personal part of the addy to the formula. Does that make sense? Hope so!

Thank you! I will try that. A few Hmeschoolblogger sites I've had no trouble adding, but others? No luck!

Meredith,
I noticed that you have Mrs.B Challenge included. She is my daughter and I would love to update her blog for her but I can't.
Anyway, I wanted to let you know that she hasn't updated her blog because she found out the first part of August she is pregnant and sadly for her she has been in the hospital the whole time!
