Shortening individual blogroll categories

Darren at ProBlogger is doing 31 days of tips to improve your blog, and some of his readers are joining him by posting tips on their own blogs. Yesterday I grabbed one idea from all the reading, sorry I can't find the blog I got this from. 10 demerit points for me.

The suggestion was that link lists can become far to long and thereby unusable. The authors said that his goal was a maximum of seven entries under any heading. That works for me as my blogroll categories have long outgrown their usefulness under the weight of the list. So I will be making changes to the blogroll over the next week or so, as time permits. The list will probably look pretty junky until it is done.

Added 8/4/05:  Wow it's interesting to try to lump links into narrower "categories."  I'm sure not a cataloger by any means, and my hat is off to people who can visualize keyword connections on the fly.  I think I may go for 10 or less in a grouping for now until I get it worked out.
