Have You Vanished?


While we were away at the weekend lots of you got in touch to let me know that my Blog List on the sidebar had vanished (thank you), but from my phone there was nothing that I could do about it until I got home to check things out.  It's a problem that seems to be creeping around the Blogger blogs at the moment. 

Since I have been back I have slowly and steadily been re-instating the blogs that were on the sidebar, and adding a couple of new ones that I have found on my journey around blogland.

Some of you have noticed that you were missing from the new list and helpfully reminded me, others I think are being a bit more reticent.  So this is a shout out to anyone who's blog used to be on my sidebar that I have yet to re-add to the new list, please don't be shy ... let me know.  All you have to do is to comment on this post and I will be able to pick up your link from your name. 

Also if there is a blog similar to mine that you journey to after reading mine each day don't be shy about letting me know it's name and if I like the look of it too I can add it to my sidebar to make your journey around blogland even easier each day.  Indeed if you have a blog that is along the lines of either of mine, don't be shy,  shout out and get yourself a little bit of publicity by making it on to my blog list too.

Now I'm off to try and pick up a few more links to my favourite people  :-)

  1. I love your blog. You have inspired me to freeze more things as a surprise to myself, which is awesome!

    We have chooks too. And my blog is named similarly to yours which may be how I found you in the first place. I read your other blog as well. :)

  2. Hi Sue -
    Thanks so much for adding my blog back on your side bar, and for all your help. Think you have already listed loads of the blogs I love, but I did wonder if you'd come across the Frugalwoods over in America? They blog about financial independence and simple living and have just realised their dream to move from a flat in Boston MA to a homestead in Vermont. Apologies if you're already a big fan! http://www.frugalwoods.com/

  4. Hi Sue ;-) I'm another blogger who has been recommended your site by Faith so I thought I'd say hello. I blog about (trying to) living a frugal life with my family at www.frugalfamily.co.uk and I think I'm going to really enjoy reading about your life and hopefully pick up some tips from you.

  6. Sue I simply love your blog and the way you write. You are teaching so many people me included on how to live a better life without and not feeling deprived like I did before as I thought it was only me being thrifty, now I know there is a whole world of people out there doing the same thing as me! Keep up the great work! Sorry I have no blog but maybe one day!

  7. Exactly the same thing happened to me last week. I have received conflicting advice. Some say "Leave it, the gadget will be restored." Others say it was probably a gadget run by a 3rd Party (i.e. not Google) that has folded and taken their software with them. I think your approach is probably the best one!

  9. I would love to know how to add a blog list to my side bar. I had the problem before that all of the blogs I had 'followed' none of thier new posts were coming up in my feed when I signed in...

    1. It's really easy to start building a blog list. Go into the Design option at the top right-hand side of your blog page, and then click on 'Layout'. Choose the 'Add a Gadget' option and then scroll down until you get to 'Blog List', then start add in the addresses of your favourite blogs The easiest way to do this is to go to their blog and copy and paste the address. This information is for Blogger blogs I think Wordpress is a bit different.

  19. Hi Sue, I would love to be in your sidebar! I blog over at The Frugal Cottage, about budgeting, money saving and early retirement. I think I send a bit of traffic your way as you are in my '10 Simple Living Blogs You Should Be Reading' post :)

  20. I vanished!! I get lots of traffic from you so would definitely recommend people not to be shy :-) After reading you I always click on your links to read about like minded people. I did wonder if you'd had a clear out or if Blogger was playing up

  21. Hi Sue! I would love to be included if possible.. I'm a fairly new blogger but I think my blog is in many ways similar to yours; I am just starting my new life in the country! :-) I write about my attempts at gardening, cooking, foraging and the every-day things. I'm a big fan and a follower of your blog.

  22. Everyone above this comment of mine has now been added to the Blog List on the sidebar.

    Thanks for taking the time to let me know you were missing, or to ask to be included. There is now lots of lovely reading for me and everyone else who passes through my blog.

    Phew ... if the list vanishes again I will be very annoyed!!

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
