The new Blogger moved many of us out of our comfort zones and forced us to do some blogging things differently. I hate change. I love my comfort zone. I haven’t switched History Is Elementary over to the new blogger, yet. I did, however, set up Georgia On My Mind in the new Blogger and I have found it very easy to use. Hopefully the process for this site will begin in February. Take this as a heads up that some changes are underway…..I just hope I don’t loose things in the process.
As I’ve branched out a bit and taken a gander at homeschool blogs, mommie blogs, political blogs, and religious blogs I noticed many people had the collapsible blog rolls. I thought they were really “neat-o” (excuse me, while I reveal my 1970s mentality). I decided to take the time to cut and paste code and move each blogroll into a collapsible program. It took one entire afternoon. Previously I had spent another afternoon organizing my links into various groups.
Well, no offense to the particular folks who wrote the code which enables a blogroll to collapse…it’s a wonderful thing I’m sure for most people, but as my post title states-----out of sight…out of mind. Blog names that stare out at me as I check to see if something posted correctly prompt me to go and and visit.
It took a few weeks but slowly it dawned on me that I hadn’t visited several people in several days…not necessarily because I was too busy, but because I had lost my prompt. My long, long list of links served as a prompt. If I haven't visited you in awhile, I'm sorry. I'll be by sometime this week. Look for my long, long list of links to reappear shortly.
