Blogrolling Updates are back with a Vengeance

I just checked this site and noticed that all the blogs on my blogroll are marked as "updated", even the ones that died months ago.

If you didn't notice that the updates were missing, never mind, go back to sleep. If you tried to follow Trep's convoluted method of bringing attention to yourself, you can now relax. Until it breaks again.

In a world where all things are "updated," is there anything truly new? Anything truly old?

I tried the new/updated thing for a little while, but I never felt like it worked properly. Your blogroll, on the other hand, used to be a better source than JRants for me for seeing what was new out there.

We Raggedys will not judge you for whatever path you ultimately choose. Good luck.

mine still don't show updates

That's strange. My blog is the only one on your blogroll showing an update. But maybe that's because I just pinged it. The other blogs are showing that they updated the same time today.

Maybe check your settings on blogrolling and see how long the update is set to trigger.

I just posted about having the same problem on my own blog. You mean that, for once, it's not something stupid that I did?

I've with Raggedmom, by the way--whenever my blogroll "dies" at the office (which is all too frequently), I just come over here and click my way through yours. :)

Mine hasn't shown updates in many, many days (except oddly enough for Amishav's blog). Then, like you noticed, all of a sudden today everyone has updated. Even if they actually haven't updated their blog. Strange indeed.

Ah, this is why I use Sage...

I wonder if perhaps BetaBlogger or Blogrolling fixed something so they work with another, and reset the system?

Your fancy technology confuses and frightens me. My 'puter is steam power, 'n' it works good 'nuff fer me.

Trying to make sense of the glitches in the blogrolling recent update mess is almost as crazy as asking me to diagnose an ear infection. Ugh.

Your post made me want to give it another try, but when blogs that have been silent for months are showing up above blogs that updated today, I think there must be something wrong beyond manual pinging.

I'm going back to alphabetical for now. Like you said at some point, at least it will be easier to find stuff. This is just too random!

Speaking of glitches: I recently noticed "Amishlover" on your blogroll and was curious why you were linking to a lover of the Amish, so I clicked on the link. It turned out to be a typo for "Amshinover"! Whoops!

mm I'm still having nightmares too. I have about 6 that seem to update but all the others either remain silent or do the we're all updated tango which means they aren't all really updated. I think its a blogroll think, I wish they would fix it.
