There's an old saying, if it ain't broke, don't fix it . . . Google would do well to remember this. As from tomorrow, I believe that the side bar with all my favourite blog links, and yours with THIS blog on it, are being decommissioned by Google. I have saved all my favourites (and some more besides) on my hard drive here, and there is also Bloglovin' which will set up an email feed of your favourites too.
I should hate to lose any of my loyal followers and don't intend not to be able to follow my favourite blogs, so I've done a belt and braces.
There is probably a lot more to this, but this is the gist I have got over the past week, visiting other folks' blogs.
