Somehow last week I obliterated my entire blog list. I mean, EVERYBODY whose blogs I have added over the past six years. I felt awful, but haven't had time to reconstruct the list. Then I discovered just now that Blogger keeps the info even if I clumsily delete it, and when I go to my Layout it's possible to reconstruct it all without struggling all morning to remember who they were.
Some will be missing from the new list. It's not like I have "un-friended" them, it's just that if they haven't posted in over a year I suppose they have moved on and given up blogging, or they have new blogs that I'll stumble across someday.
Anyway, thanks, Blogger, for making it so easy to retrieve my blogging buddies. I was missing them, so glad to have them back.
