It seems Blogger has managed to lose the Blogroll and every other link on the left side. Please stand by.
Update One: It seems that Google doesn’t believe in backups, at least for free services. I should have backed the damn thing up myself. At least the Wayback Machine has a fairly recent snapshot, so I can rebuild the missing content. The question is, do I want to? I have considered closing up shop. I’ve also considered moving to another platform. With the recent reduction in income, it would have to be free. Time for the One Minute Analyst to have a go at this.
Update Two: Having some play with WordPress. It has some interesting features, but lacks some things I like in Blogger. I would have to move the blog over and would still have to recreate the blogroll, etc. Available templates are much more pleasing to the eye. Not too sure I like the compromise, though.
Update Three: Killed the WordPress site. Couldn’t make it work for me except in IE. Not happening on my computer, thanks all the same.
Update Four: After some experimentation (I hope not too many people saw some of that, it was…weird) I have a template I like better than the old one. I have the width set to 1500 pixels, which may be rather wide for some people. I’m going to start repopulating the various link sections a bit at a time as I feel like typing like a data entry clerk.
Feedback is welcome. Really. I need feedback on color choices and page/element widths especially.
