Unintended Consequences

Now that I have my own domain,, I thought it would be just spiffy to put my blogs on it - and it is, but there are a few things I didn't realize would happen. I had about 80 blogs listed in my blogroll here before I changed my url, and now they are GONE. I can't remember all of them off the top of my head, either. If you were in my blogroll or have a right-blog that you would like to see in my blogroll, please let me know so I can add it. This is messing me up because I often come here and check out the feed to get ideas to post about & also post to the A-C page.
I wonder if my blogs still update in other blogs who've added me.

If you have me or would like to have me in your blogroll, please update my listing to the new url for

Awwwwww!!!! This is why one should always PRINT OUT the important stuff, in this case the blogroll. With the computer probs I've had over the past few months, I'm printing out a number of things including all my iPod playlists and all my FB profile info. I also save my brower bookmarks every few months (I use 5 diff. browsers). Just a word to the wise ;-) Hope you get most of them back!!

CLICKFREE - not very expensive, multi-computer capable, very compact, easy to use (actually requires about 5 clicks). I have the 320gb size, there is 500gb and I think in 1tb size. That should hold you till the cows come home !

While checking them out on-line before I bought mine, I read the reviews; not one negative review ! Just sayin` ! Added bonus; it doesn`t require a "Dummies" book !

Peg, my printer went caflooey recently. LOL
I should have saved it to a word doc or something, but it never occurred to me that my blogroll would vanish because everything else stayed put when I changed the url.

Thanks, SPG, the only thing I lost was the blogroll so I'm basically OK. At this point in time I can only take advantage of free services because we've got a very tight budget here - that's why I sell ad space & have "donate" buttons on my blogs. I really need to find some paying gigs.

This is a test from Dave

okay the test worked so I just want to add to what signpainterguy said: clickfree is a great back up system and you can back up more than one computer. Just plug it in to the wachamacallit hole on the side of your pc or laptop and it does the rest. very easy to use(even for me) Got mine sent to me from Dell products for under $100.00 bucks

I'm using Carbonite now and lovin' it!! I also am using 2 (yes, 2) external HDs.

Zilla said...

Hi Dave!
Thanks for the suggestions everyone. After the holidays, I'll definitely look into that stuff.

SignPainterGuy said...

Zilla, I can certainly empathize w/ your situation. When Dad signed over the bus. to me 3 months before cancer took him from us, I had nearly no bus. accumin, an established clientele, some stock, a short log of orders, a wife who offered NO moral support (she cut a trail a year later), enthusiasm to-burn but no money - Mom got all that ! Hunger is a great motivator !!

Friends and associates offered tons of advice, all of it envolved spending money ! Unless your the gov., you really can`t spend what you don`t have !

You are not alone !

I would love mine added! Thanks, Mare!

Blog Name: That's So Haram!

And don't worry, you will get the hang of all this in no time. Blogging and developing websites always involves frustrating growing pains.

Zilla said...

Keiko, you have your very own box here! (down below) Yours is also one of the very first ones I put back. The blogroll only shows the 25 most recently updated blogs, but you can click to "see all" at the bottom of the list.

SPG, thanks for the empathy, but don't worry - I think I'm doing pretty good so far even though I've only been using free stuff!

The domain & website came free when I switched my internet provider & now I'm paying 1/2 of what I used to a month for my tv/internet/phone service!

Hey everybody, look up in the address bar and see that I've even got my pages showing my spiffy favicon! (visible in firefox, not sure about other browsers)

mRed said...

New address added. You go girl.

Zilla said...

Thank you!

Zilla, I just changed your url in my blogroll. I've just gone through a similar thing at my place over the last three weeks. I don't think your blog will update at other blogs unless they have your new feed (unless you were able to successfully transfer it, which I was not).

To try to find the blogs from your last blogroll, try visiting others and take a look at theirs. Chances are it will jog your memory more than a few times.

Zilla said...

Thanks, Maggie, That's what I've been doing - going to other blogrolls to find what I lost.
