For a long time now, I have been meaning to do something with the links on this site.
There were a lot of people linking to this site, and I wasn’t linking back, which didn’t seem fair. But who gives a shit about being fair?
Anyway, I decided to do something about it. I very nicely asked those people in Google if they would kindly tell me all the links that people had clicked to arrive here. They were quite obliging and sent me the list.
All 13,090 of them!
This was a bit of a pain in the arse, as I had to go through them removing pages that were sub-pages of the main site, if you know what I mean.
Then a lot of them were from comments that I had left on other sites [yes – I do comment occasionally]. And some of them were casual mentions, and some of them were on forums and shit like that.
After all the pruning, I then had to visit each site to make sure it was still working, and to get its name right.
I finally whittled the list down to 134.
So there are 134 sites out there that have
bogrolls blogrolls that link here? I’m flattered.
It was actually quite an interesting exercise, as I came across a few sites that I had never even heard of before. The other thing I got a laugh from was the great names that you lot have thought up for your sites. Where the fuck did you get them from?
Anyway – I then spent an age putting all those links onto a page on my site. It doesn’t look very neat, and I may do something about it sometime, but all the links are there. All 134 of them. I had to put them on a separate page, otherwise the front page would have been so long, it would have scraped off the floor.
Another thing that amused me is that half link to Head Rambles, and half link to Grandad. Make your fucking minds up! One or two linked to “Grandad at Head Rambles” which made sense.
Now, I may have missed one or two. Take a look, and if you have a link on your
bogroll blogroll, but you ain’t on the list, just tell me. I will probably ignore you as life can be cruel sometimes.
If you want to be put at the top of the list, just change your site name, as the list is alphabetical.
