Freud Plays a Hand

Well, for the second month in a row, I have not deleted the blogs that I had warned I would. Last month, I was really too sick to be dealing with this, and this month, I just let the time get by and the month ended before I thought about it. Nobody's fault but mine. I did think about deleting all of them a couple of days before the end of the month, but I wanted to give everyone as much time as possible to click on their voting links. It really pains me to think of losing close to 200 blogs in one fell swoop. Maybe the whole episode has been a Freudian slip. I don't know.

Anyway, I still have my list of who was warned to vote for themselves or lose membership, so I will be deleting these blogs during this month, without warning, IF they do not have at least one HIT IN.

And, why, do you ask, am I so determined to get rid of these blogs that do not vote for themselves? There are two main reasons. One - it means they are probably not ever looking at the TopList, which means they will not be reading any other Villager's blogs. Two - it means I would have to keep checking on all these blogs each month to see if they still have the BLOG VILLAGE voting link on the site. And that's just too hard to manage with so many people to check on. I'd rather be spending my time READING and COMMENTING on fellow Villager's blogs - not being the "banner police"!!

So, again I remind you that you are required to vote for yourself ONE TIME Each MONTH to keep your membership in our Community. Vote for yourself FROM YOUR BLOG, and then go vote for those Villagers you would hate to see deleted. Seems easy enough to me.

I just voted for myself! Sorry if I was being one of the delinquents, I can't remember if I voted last month. I did NaBloPoMo so I was so busy blogging I didn't do much surfing!

I really appreciate you taking care of this, Mauigirl.

I really appreciate all the hard word and dedication you have put into blog village. You rock! :D

I appreciate that, Nicole. Lately this is beginning to feel like I am wasting my time.

Quality, not quantity, is what the Blog Village COMMUNITY is about.

I think that getting rid of the dead weight is a positive, leaving a solid foundation on which to build further.

There was a time I supported limiting the number of members. In that vein, it's possible seeing so many members makes some less inclined to join.

Take a stand and knock 'em out, Dirty Butter. If they truly want to be members they won't be shut out from returning as I have understood what you've written.

Here's to a great '08 for Blog Village!!

I am working my way through the list of blogs now, Kilroy. It's a long list, and I have other more important issues to deal with than this, but it will be done.

You will probably find a few blogs you liked disappearing, but I've done my best to warn everybody. If they are gone, they can always come back, IF they will just take care of the HIT IN each month, and keep their blog Family Friendly.
