From blogroll to graveyard

While doing some blog housekeeping this week, I decided to weed out a raft of blogs in the higher ed category of my blogroll. Gone from the roll are those higher ed blogs that were either extremely stale (no posts since 2009 or earlier) or missing in action.

These blogs have been purged. May they rest in peace:

I hated to let some of them go, because they were fine blogs in their day. But if they’ve been abandoned by their creators, why should I attempt to keep them on life support?

P.S. – If you are the owner of one of these blogs and you do start posting again, please let me know so I can resurrect your link on the blogroll.

P.P.S. – While housecleaning, I added four other noteworthy blogs to the higher ed blogroll: EMG’s Brand Manager’s Notebook, Ron Bronson’s edustir, Dave Olsen’s Mobile in Higher Ed blog and Rachel Reuben‘s blog.

P.P.P.S. – I know I also need to prune the other blogroll categories. (One of these days.)

  1. Phew, I survived *this* round. :) Trying to get back on the blogwagon this summer. So much to share, so little time to type it out. Thanks for the inspiration (even if at the demise of others). :)

  2. I know you’ve got a lot of ideas swimming around in that creative mind, Brad. I look forward to reading about some of them on your blog (or on BlueFuego).
