Do you really need to have all those blogs in your sidebar site wide?
You could also just put them all on one page. It’s well known that Google and other search engines penalise site wide links, so it’s better to keep them all on one page. Further more, you are also likely to prevent or lose visitors from browsing through your site as they get distracted and go to external sites. It is the same situation for links to individual post pages, you should ensure that they are content related, if not it does not help your site or your friends.
