Whew! That was fun!
I mentioned on Thursday that I planned to do some housekeeping on the Book Blog Meme Directory page. I intended to go through the directory, test out each link, and update anything that needed updating. I figured I’d tackle it in small bites, maybe just trying out a handful each day until I finished.
Whoops. Nothing like having an obsessive need to finish things to move a project along!
I sat down to work on it earlier this afternoon… and here, I am, two hours later, with tired fingers but a big smile of accomplishment. I’m done!
I checked out every directory listing, and archived every one I found that was no longer current. For some, the host blog was still active, but I didn’t see any recent meme posts (as in, not for months or even years). For some, I could find the blog but couldn’t find anything related to the meme. And for others, the entire blog seemed to be gone, or there was a final blog post saying that the blog would no longer be active.
That’s blogging, I guess. Things come, things go!
Never fear: Nothing from the Book Blog Meme Directory is gone forever. I’ve saved all of the details and images, and can reinstate any of the entries if needed. If you host one of the deleted meme entries, just get in touch (my Contact page is really the best way) and let me know your updated details. If you’re not the host but happen to know some relevant information (like the meme was adopted by a different blog, switched names, etc), please let me know!
Here’s a list of the 32 (!!!) meme entries that I’ve archived as of now:
