When I changed layouts, I lost all of my page elements in the sidebar. Before I uploaded this new (hopefully spectacular) code to make my blog go from rags to riches, aesthetically speaking, I transferred all of my blog roll components into a list which will be my official blog roll. I don't have time to add everyone back (remember that post a while back about how screwed everyone was? Yeah, I rated off the charts, so I need to get reading).

So, this is my compromise because I don't want people thinking I'm overlooking them - the list will be placed in a blog post (below). Some people are also on my sidebar blog roll, yes, but most of them are people who're A) my best friends, B) my good friends, or C) people I speak to very, very regularly.

If you'd like to be added onto my blog roll please shoot me an email or comment below. I hope no one's offended with this new arrangement - honestly, I read most of these blogs (via a feed reader) and I'm huge on the community as I hope it's apparent. If you're not on the sidebar, it's not that I don't love you. It's just that my book pile is threatening to eat me whole.

Me please!

Steph said...

WHOA, Kelsey, I didn't have you on there? How?? My apologies, you're added now!

Anonymous said...

Well, I, for one, am completely offended and will now sit in a corner and pout.


Blogrolls and get sooooo looooong and I like this idea of having a post for them so it doesn't clutter the sidebar. A cluttered sidebar makes me shudder and ignites my OCD tendencies. ;)

I really like this template, so well done you! :)

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
