Blogger bloglist widget- you CAN lose it!

Those of you that are on my blogroll/bloglist, down to the right there, I love you!

Yup, i love you so much, that i manually entered all of your blog url's that the Blogger Bloglist widget LOST back onto my blog.

So if you are there and I haven't visited in awhile, doesn't mean i forgot you. I am planning to visit each and every one of you in the next few days. I appreciate your blog that much more after losing it. If you're not there and you should be, leave your blog url in the comment section here and I will add it.

Now i am working on entering the non-IF related blogs, under "I dig these too" as those were lost as well.

Word of advice:

If you are planning to make changes to your Blogger template or html, even if you save a copy, the bloglist widget info will be lost. As you know now, I learned the hard way.

I saved a copy BEFORE I made changes. Then I didn't like the changes i made, so I copied and pasted the OLD html I saved and all widgets were there EXCEPT for the bloglist widgets.

So i did a google search for my blog url, hit the CACHED button and got a snapshot of my blog from the day before. The bloglists were there and when i put my mouse on the blog name, it showed me the url at the bottom of my screen and I started entering away!


  1. I've lost my blogroll too. LOVE dealing with THAT.

  2. What a PITA! Good job getting it all fixed. Using Goggle and your cache was a smart thing to do!

  3. Great solution...sorry you had to deal with it.

  4. You are so smart. I love the way you cached in.

    Thanks for including me!

  5. Ugh. That's happened to me...but only once. SUCKED!

  6. Bwaaaaah! That is so me. I have done that numerous times. I'm glad you were able to fix it and I'm sorry you had to do the extra work.

  7. You are so smart. I would have just cried.

  8. Thank God for Goggle's Cach :-) but still - a lot of work!
