Blogroll Complete

Please tell me it’s pretty.

I finished hand-erasing html code off of 2000+ entries on the blogroll.  If not, the blogroll had strange spacing and blogs were hidden (meaning: the url was there, but there were no words to link it to, so I could see it in draft, but no one could see it once I published it.  So it really was necessary to fix this). So go poke around and check out the new numbering feature on all the subsections so you can tell how many people are in a category.

And while you’re there, you can thank Josh who sat beside me through most of it watching Across the Universe on continual play because he is that patient with me.  And he only mentioned once or twice when we heard Joe Anderson sweetly croon “A Little Help From My Friends” that it takes 19 times of hearing Joe Anderson sweetly croon “A Little Help From My Friends” to fix the blogroll.  Thank you, Josh, for enduring.  And thank you, Joe Anderson, for providing the music.

It was like a really good eyebrow plucking, where it’s a pain-in-the-ass to make the appointment and have someone put hot wax on your face and RIP OFF YOUR HAIR FOR THE LOVE OF G-D WHY DID ANYONE THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?  But…er…then you leave the salon and you feel so clean and neat and orderly.

First request: if you have a link to the blogroll on your sidebar, please change it to the new space: https://www.stirrup-queens.com/a-whole-lot-of-blogging-brought-to-you-sorted-and-filed/.

And now, I can add people again.  Second request: if you write me in the future about moving your blog to a new subsection, please let me know where your blog is located (as in: “hey Mel, I’m #34 in male factor”).  If you don’t know where you are, put your blog name in quotes (as in: “Stirrup Queens”) in the search feature on the left sidebar.  See that?  Under the ads where it says “search this site?”  It will bring up the page of the blogroll that contains your blog.

In case you care, the number of blogs in each room: adoption (223), loss (171), child-free (10), donor gametes and surrogacy (130), pg and parenting (509), general IF (274), diagnoses (336), miscellaneous (89), and situation (294)=2036 blogs.

Now back to you telling me that it’s so pretty and neat that it’s making your own eyebrows feel like a Costa Rican rain forest.  Not to even mention the state of your nether regions…

Finishing it was most definitely a perfect moment.  Sigh.

Lovely job, Mel! Thanks for all you do for our community! (and thanks for the reminder that I need to get my brows done!)

5 Angie { 10.05.09 at 11:18 am }

It is very beautiful.

6 Lavender Luz { 10.05.09 at 11:23 am }

As amazing and beautiful as the blogroll is, it holds just a fraction of the amazingness and beauty of its creator (as well as her long-suffering husband and her blog guide Lindsay).

Nicely, nicely done.

Lovely. And a good reminder to get my brows done.

15 Kate (Bee In The Bonnet) { 10.05.09 at 12:35 pm }

MEL! It is SO pretty! Nineteen “Across The Universes” proves that you really DID miss your calling as an organizational professional. Way to go!

And now, I’m suddenly feeling the need to make an appointment at my local salon for a little grooming…

16 Guera! { 10.05.09 at 2:16 pm }

Is it too late to get added?

17 Sunny { 10.05.09 at 2:52 pm }

PHEW that had to be hard work! It looks GREAT!

You are so amazing Mel. The fact that you put this much love and heart into helping us all in the IF/loss community means the world. Thanks for all you do. *hugs*

21 Another Dreamer { 10.05.09 at 4:33 pm }

Love it! Love it! You have the patience of a saint Mel. Really, you do.

Beautiful! Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this.

28 Leah { 10.05.09 at 9:14 pm }

It IS pretty. But not nearly as pretty as you, my sweet.

29 a { 10.05.09 at 9:41 pm }

Very nice – and well worth Josh’s time!

30 Lindsey { 10.05.09 at 11:51 pm }
