Where Did My Blogroll Go?

4.05.2015

First of all Happy Easter and I hope you are having a great one. We went to church and brunch with my daughter and granddaughter on this chilly spring day.

 I have had several emails asking me where my blogroll went. I didn't realize so many of my readers used my blogroll. I was trying to clean up the look of my blog a bit and was hoping by removing it that it would make my blog run a bit smoother. 


Here is a screenshot to show y'all where I moved the list of  blogs I follow. There is a tab that says Savvy Friends that you just click on and it will open up and show you the blogs in alphabetical order.


There is a long list and I am still adding to it. Just click on any name and it will open up that blog for you to read.

I'm so glad many of you like checking out the blogs I like to read. There is so much inspiration to be found.

I hope this helps y'all out and thanks so much for visiting here.

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a super week!

  2. I agree it looks much cleaner with it out of the sidebar, and people will get used to finding it in it's new spot. Happy Easter Kim :)

  3. Thank goodness. I have been totally lost without your blogroll. I visit your site many times a day not only for your greatness but to check on who has recently published a post.

    1. I'm afraid it is just listed alphabetically, Janette.

  4. here's my dilemma....i did see that you had the link at the top...and even went there a few times to check it out before you posted this....but to me.....i like the blog roll...it lets me see who has updated their blogs and i am not having to click some that have not posted in months...does that make sense...so i am a bigger fan of having them on the side bar...with the newly posted blogs at the top of your blogroll.... just saying !!!

    1. Linda, I do understand your dilemma. I was hoping to have a rotating blog roll in the tab, but not sure how to get that there. I always thought the blogroll was there mostly for me to keep up with some I follow and didn't realize others were using it. I try to subscribe to my faves so they land in my inbox when they post. Then you won't miss their latest post. Thanks

    2. Also I don't keep any blogs on my blog list that don't blog regularly.

    3. i try to keep things simple.....and i guess you can call me old school...lol...but having to click on so many things to get to read a blog...whether its the read more button....or a blog savvy friends tab....i still use the blog style i used way back in 2007 when i started blogging....i don't like to fill my email box with a bunch of blog updates....that's why i enjoyed visiting you so much ...i didn't have to do that....its ok kim....you have to do what's best for you....maybe some day i can be on your list too...i have had you on mine for a long time...another thing i don't enjoy are all the ads that come with the blogs these days.....told you i am old school....lol...they just annoy me like commercials do on tv.....and ads in all the magazines...

    4. Linda, I thought you were just a reader. Didn't know you had a blog. Then you can add the blogs I have listed on your blogroll and they will update. You don't need me to have one. Yes, some bloggers don't understand that a lot of blogs are a business now and not just a hobby. I don't care for the ads either, but without them this blog would have ended long time ago. I'm glad I am able to make an income to get projects done around here like the bathroom we just worked on and will be revealed soon. Most of it was out of my pocket and hubby helped a little monetarily and with a lot of labor. I work on this blog seven days a week and most hours of the day so I'm glad I can be compensated for my time and try to bring good content to my readers. Have a great week!

  6. I'm glad to be a Savvy friend, too, Kim! When I had our blog redone a few months ago, I was advised to do away with the blog roll and a few other things to speed things up. My sister-in-law is one of those people who visit your blog daily, not only to read your latest post but to click on your blog roll to see who has just published. Being on WP, I didn't have that kind of blogroll so she always went to yours. Hope your Easter was very enjoyable!

  8. Hi Kim, yes, thanks for including me on your list!! But I did notice lately that my traffic from your blog was gone, I didn't realize you had done away with your blog roll. I wasn't sure what had happened. I know about hard to load, but I just use the option to only show 10 or an option of 25 on the list, unless the reader wants to expand it themselves. I like having my blog roll, so I can check updates of everyone, and I know a lot of people use it like I do, also. Business wise, I think a blog roll keeps readers on your site longer, and coming back each day to check in to see what's happening. Hope you had a great Easter!

    1. Debra, I did have it showing only 25 at a time. Sorry about the traffic loss to your blog. Maybe they will click on it in my list now that I have shared where it is. I have already been told my blog is loading faster by the few changes I made. Better overall if your blog doesn't load too slowly.

  9. Honored kim, to be apart of your savvy friends, you are one of mine as well.
    Always inspired with all your French country beauty.
    I have up a new post, French pottery, and rural rustic Pottery sign.

    See you soon dear.

    Happy Easter.

    Xx

  12. I cleaned mine up too after I had my blog re-vamped. Thanks so much sweet friend for adding me to your blog roll!

  13. I would like to take the opportunity of your post to thank from the bottom of my heart for adding me to your blog list. Many of my readers only found me thanks to you.

  14. My blog roll got deleted somehow a while ago but after a few readers contacted me asking for it back I decided to update it again. Still working on it and I try to keep it up to date, so I know that switching yours over was probably time consuming. If you can make a bit of money off your work, why not? My income is most likely very very tiny in comparison but every bit counts. You have always been one of my top referrers, thanks for that.
