Today is a day that I’ve been looking forward to. I get to take down my list of Australian librar* blogs.
I am pleased that there are now two places on the web which I can turn to when I want to find Australian blogs.
First is the list on lint. If I ever miss maintaining my list, I can be happy because I can always do so as a contributor at lint.
Second is something I have only recently noticed. The Australian Index has a very worthy list of Australian librar* blogs.
I made that list because there wasn’t anything like that around which was managed by Australians, and I thought there should be. Now that two good Australian-made alternatives have appeared, I can happily drop the responsibility of maintaining my list.
While I’m at it, I’ve decided that it’s time to overhaul all the other external links on this blog. This time I want to try something different. Instead of tinkering with what’s already there, I’m dumping them all and will then gradually rebuild. I'm sure that many of the blogs which used to be there will return. But for the moment I'm enjoying this moment where my sidebar feels light and uncluttered.
