Not that it really matter, but . . .

I've been noodling around with my link lists on the sidebar. I used to use these as a way to keep up with blogs that I liked, but for a while now I've been using Google Reader to do that, so I thought I'd pare down the lists and do some rearranging.

Any blog is a kind of self-portrait, and these lists have to do with letting visitors know the kind of things I'm interested in, the "focus" of Wilderness Fandango. Now, admittedly I haven't had much of a "focus" lately. I've kind of been meandering, and very recently I've been thinking about what I want this blog to be about.

Hence, the first list is labeled "Missional Types," because I want that to be one important focus for me. The second list is "Other Assorted Christ Followers." These folks are Christian bloggers who are not necessarily self-defining as missional, but I love and respect them and their writing, they are old friends of WF, and I want to continue to feature them somewhere here at WF.

The third list is a sort of catch-all. Right now I'm calling it "Readers, Philosopher-Poets, and Classic Film Junkies," but that may change. Again, I "follow" these folks in my Reader, so they're here simply as a part of the self-portrait, or for those who like to rummage about on blogrolls!

Long-and-short, I've dropped some, I've moved some, and it doesn't really make much difference.

I like the idea ... I follow a lot of blogs through google reader so I wrestle with what if anything to put in my blog's sidebar. The approach of using it to paint a portrait of one's self seems good.
