Organic Blogroll Revamp


You wouldn't believe how often I've tried to 'modernise' this blog.  I've now succumbed to my ignorance of technology and will stick with the present format.

But the past couple of weeks I've have been aware some of my readers' blogs are not mentioned in my blogroll and they're far too polite to say.  I apologise for my indolence but here's your chance. If you'd like to be part of my spring clean email me or put your URL in the comments.

I'll continue on my quest to expand this blog, although I'm partial to the present design (purely because I'm scared to modernise it), but for us older folks HTML is like saying organic is our food source.  To  explain that for younger generations 'organic' food didn't exist back in the 50s, 60s and 70s because most food was grown organically and that meant without an abundance of chemicals to improve grown.

I'm sounding like a grumpy old woman.  I make no apologies. There are too few of us who make our voices heard, but as life goes on younger generations will realise they will eat according to our country's natural productivity.  In this part of Scotland folk can always freeze berries and fruit from late summer and yet have a plentiful supply of root vegetables all winter long.  Thankfully Burns Night is at this time of year because if it was in summer we would be eating haggis and neeps with salad!

I promise any email correspondence will be treated with the utmost confidentiality unless I have your written consent to publish it. That has always been my policy and one to which the majority of bloggers adhere.

If you do make changes ( and why does everybody want change all the time?) please keep the text as black on white. I don't think I'm the only person who finds light text on dark backgrounds difficult to read. Remember the engineers' design criteria "KISS" - "Keep it simple, stupid"!
Oh, and thanks for putting me on your blogroll - its time I updated my own!

And your blog's fine.

I was tempted to relay mine, but the practicalities of it lead to to just leaving it alone.

Would you mention my friend Old Nick at http://damned-to-hell.blogspot.com?

For some unknown reason either of us has been able to figure out, he doesn't seem to be able to comment on your blog although he's tried more than once! (assuming of course you like what he does!)

I spent 20 years working with comuters and have long since stopped trying to figure these things out...

I rarely change things around on my blog either merely adding or subtracting from the contents at the side, so I have no problems with your blog remaining a constant and a damned good read.

It's a truism: "If it ain't bust, don't fix it"

You page is legible, well-laid out & easy on the eye.

There are some I visit which look like they were composed after/during an LSD trip.

Hi, thought I would pop in today since I haven't been about much lately. I'd certainly love for you to include my blog http://jeannetomlin.blogspot.com/

I just realized that you weren't on my blog roll so I'll add you, although you lot tend to baffle most of my American readers. Hehe ;)

EP, all I want to do is widen it a bit but most folk find it ok as it is it seems. And yes, I agree with the black on white.

subrosa said...

Thank you RA.

subrosa said...

Of course I'll put your friend on Dioclese.

I've no idea why he can't comment Dioclese. Tell him not to give up. :)

subrosa said...

Auch QM. you're too kind but thanks.

subrosa said...

I wanted it simple Dram and easy to read and not something which had too many distractions.

subrosa said...

Must admit some I visit are like that too Joe. Very difficult to read when you're in a hurry.

subrosa said...

Jeanne I'd be delighted to add you and sorry I haven't done it before.

Aye, we're a strange bunch here right enough. :)
