Rolling out the New Blogrolls

I reorganized my blogroll both here and on the emergency blogspot – I hope I didn’t leave anyone off by accident. Mostly I added sites; removed a few links which weren’t going anywhere any more, but on the whole my blogrolls are longer!

I blame KateBlogs from Itisi! It all started when I noticed her new-look blogroll showing the title of each blogger’s latest post. Which I wanted to do too. So. I’ve organized my Blogspot blogroll so that the most recently updated appear at the top along with the time. For example:

BBC NEWS Peston’s Picks
Now there are runs on countries
2 hours ago

Space Cat Rocket Ship
Springtime on Saturn
1 day ago

Mel’s Photoshop Brushes
Making perfect repeat patterns in Photoshop
1 day ago

Stephen Fry
A suitcase of cables
5 days ago

…etc. A pity I can’t do that here on WordPress. 🙂

Something else I did that I’m dying to bore my readers with – see the small triangular tab next to ‘About’ in the header bar? Jolly the Trolley deserved his own page, don’t you think? I gathered together all the links concerning him, and listed them there with a photo. This was an interesting exercise as there were a couple of posts I forgot about… when he was still just a small grey wheelie bag.

Nostalgic sigh.



I live in the UK with two cats -- Samson and Delilah.

  1. Yay! A page for Jolly, he deserves it.

    Glad you like the blogroll. It seems quite popular, I’ve noticed a lot more people are using it. I suppose seeing a title gives them some idea of what to expect. It is a shame we can’t do that here . . . unless, I wonder if you could do it using delicious. Hang on, I’ll have a look. Back again – no, I don’t think you can. I’m sure there must be a way though, I’ll have a think about it and get back to you.

  2. Hi, Well, I’ve done it… I’ve signed up… You up for this? You gonna be my writing buddy?
    We can do this! One month!
    daffy1 if you want to add me when and if you sign up!

  3. Thanks Kate. 🙂 I’m not sure that I would be allowed to add code of my own as I’m one of the freebie users… ahem. I was able to customize the current theme colours because the feature is built in for us, but I wasn’t able to do anything at all with the last theme I used.

    Hi Daffy, this is exciting! Absolutely I’ll be your writing buddy… I just have a monolith to move (see Kate’s On Writing and Design in my blogroll), and then I promised myself I would sign up. Gah, I hate moving monoliths. Sigh.
