So apparently, Blog Land is about to experience some version of the movie Brigadoon.
You know the one. It's where Gene Kelly happens upon a mystical land which appears only one day every 100 years. After that, it just disappears into the mist as everyone sleeps.
(If you have never seen it, go rent it now.
And apparently, our little Blogadoon will happen this very night. Kinda creepy to my way of thinking... I don't know about the rest of you, but I have an oddball urge to sit up and watch my home page to see what happens. I mean, will it happen all at once, or will blogs just start fading off the page, one by one? Will I be able to hear the little blogpipers, but not be able to see them?
That's the kind of stuff that keeps me up at night, people.
However it all goes down, there's one thing I know. Tomorrow, I will no longer be able to hop up and down my semi-trusty blogger homepage to visit favorite blogs. To a right brained blonde who requires a map from the den to the kitchen, that's very frustrating.
I don't do change well.
I multi task even worse.
I've seen a lot of blogs sharing the best way for folks to follow them in the event of a Blogadoon Disaster, but this post isn't about following me; it's about how I plan to keep following you.
You see, as much as I enjoy blogging, it was reading the thoughts and ideas of others that drew me into this whole fairy tale to begin with. Simply put, I like you and don't want to lose you to the mist.
Here's my plan:
From what I can tell, Blogspot blogs will not be affected as yet. I checked all my blogs, and the majority are Blogspot anyway. That being the case, I still plan to use my blogger homepage as my base of operations. It's just simpler that way.
I did make sure to sign up for Linky Followers and have followed any Blogadoon who has offered up that option. I did not do Linky Followers for Blogspot blogs because I'm going to keep following you the way I always have...for now. I also put a section on my sideboard for blogs who aren't Googley Friends to see if it's easier to follow that way. (Of course, I'm really lame about updating that side board over there so we'll have to see how that goes...)
Anyway, that's what I am planning to do unless someone gives me a better plan.
So tell me...
How are you planning to keep up with the blogs you follow
when the mist rises on Blogadoon?
*****In other news, my keyboard has arrived! Of course, I don't have a husband home to install it so it will have to wait until Friday. Please don't suggest that I do it myself. I don't install keyboards; I just baptize them.
