Blogger fail ate all my blogrolls!

Siiiiiiigh. I guess this means I get to use some other method now to maintain my blogrolls, since Blogger obviously is massive Fail there.

  1. Yikes.

    When you figure out the other method, please share.

    Now, I'm eskeered.

  2. What a disaster!
    Damn, that is just fucked up.

  3. Jazz, this is only an issue if you move a blog to a new URL. Apparently Blogger ties blogrolls to a specified URL. Move the blog, and your blogrolls go bye-bye :(.


    Well, my blogrolls were getting out of hand anyhow, completely obsolete and half the blogs on them either no longer existed or I didn't like anymore.

    I'm thinking maybe I'll try out Bloglines. That way I can both see what updates have been recently published on all the blogs I read, and export my blog list as a blogroll to my blog. We'll see how that works.

  4. Hum, they didn't eat mine so I guess they just hate you, ha ha ha.

    I save favorite book marks to a folder on my desktop anyway so so even if the bookmarks on the browser goes away I still have them.

    None of it really matters anyway, I've lost long strings of bookmarks before and my life has still ticked along just fine.

    It's like shit piling up on the desk until it starts falling on the floor, I just clear the desk when that happens and move on, it's all history anyway.

    New shit starts building up right away. New shit that in six months I still won't be looking at again. It's all pretty much just shit, like your shit, only it's my shit.

    Jazz, this is only an issue if you move a blog to a new URL.

    I've never seen the need to do that, but I'm not a stupid geek, ha ha ha ha

  5. This reminds me that I should really update my blogroll - especially as it approaches 50% dead or almost dead blogs...
