External links who have been valuable to me. Putting them here as an experiment to remove the WP blogroll and speed up load time. See reason in link at bottom.
Removed Blogroll based on this tip Rethink that Sidebar
“Do you really need to link out to all your buddies in your blogroll site wide? Or is it perhaps wiser to just do that on your front page? Google and other search engines these days heavily discount site wide links, so you’re not really doing your friends any more favor by giving them that site wide link, nor are you helping yourself”
It works! Each link in the Blogroll is an http and takes time to load.
