Why the suspension? Too much work?

I’ll go back to two-a-week links, then.

Michael, There are two main reasons for suspending the links. One is the time taken, not so much to add the links, but to keep up with a large number of blogs via RSS. The other is that Twitter and Facebook provide another outlet for sharing links. I might start doing it again at some time in the future or think about other ways of promoting cross-linking in the Taiwan blogosphere.
