Chaos on the blogroll

Blogger has rolled my blogroll.

Actually I don't know whether it's Blogger or me, but it's not you. I mean I'm not offended with anyone or anything. (There's a PhD thesis in this issue: online bullying with particular emphasis on blogroll contents and their implications and effects.)

Normal blogroll services will be resumed shortly, ie as soon as I've been to the vacuum cleaner shop to replace the last bag, now filled with tiny lethal fragments of glass left over from the deplorable Locked Out of the Car in the Middle of Nowhere episode, and written and filed my weekly copy.

Comiserations re the car thing.
and re the blogroll thing.

so long as no cats were harmed during it ...

Haha, there is a PHD thesis in blogrolls. I just got rid of mine altogether in the end. Too much silliness.

Your blogroll is fab. I always look to see who has updated. I'm not fancy enough to do those rss feed thingys.

Ms O'Dyne, indeed no cats were harmed. I would not dare.

Paul, got rid of your thesis or your blogroll??

Mindy -- I think the fancy new Blogger upgrade thingy more or less did that for me -- if you use the My Blog List function in Add a Gadget you can choose to order them either alphabetically or by most recent post: you enter the URL in the field and then Blogger finds the blog for you and adds it automatically without you having to fluff around with code. The downside is that if someone doesn't have their feed turned on then there's no way (at least that I have yet figured out) that you can add them to that blogroll.

Cool I will try it and see what happens.

I've always rather liked your Blogroll, and have to admit to using it for the same reason as Mindy.

I look forward to the resumption of normal service :)

SL, normal service is being slowly resumed by degrees; as is usual in my life, I am remodelling only when forced by some crisis to do so, but rather than a tedious marathon of linking, cutting and pasting -- not being a geek by nature I find this kind of thing no fun at all -- I'm mostly tending to add people as they comment because it's quick to link back to their URLS.

'Chaos on the blogroll', to the same tune as 'Murder on the Dancefloor', I presume.

It's a great motivation to blog, seeing your name move up to the top.

Paul said...

Both, I'm afraid. My blogroll trailed off into an eternity of irrelevance and so did my thesis.
