End of blogrolling, end of blogging?
This morning I got a message about a new comment on my blog, so I went to have a look at it, and my blog vanished. There was just a message saying that the page could not be displayed and I must contact the administrator.
The comment I tried to look at was from “Anonymous”, so, thinking it might contain some malicious redirecting code, I deleted it.
But still the blog would not display. I went to the Blogger forums and found that others had had similar problems, which appeared to be caused by blogrolling widgets. They either had bugs, or were being hacked, it seemed.
So I deleted all the blogtolling widgets.
But now my blog is isolated.
It was bad enough when MyBlogLog disappeared, and BlogCatalog was “improved” so that it became almost useless. But I still had blogrolls of blogs I liked to read, and I could see when they were updated, and so could read new posts on them.
But now I’ve had to remove them too.
Someone really does seem to be out to kill blogs and blogging.
I liked to read “The poor mouth”, but can’t remember the URL, and the same with lots of other blogs.
