Whoopee! Blogger's fixed it!

A lot of us have been bemoaning Blogger's screwing up of the renaming function in blog list - it all started when they - and need I say, I hate it - started changing urls automatically to include the country code. This means the .com changes to .es or wherever you might be. Along with this originated the other problem of the vanishing act of quick edit pen! Anyway, that's another story. I found a way around that.

Due to this problem of renaming, I've been putting off adding some blogs missing from this list, so when I found out today that the problem's been fixed, I immediately added the following:

Graham Stanley's

Kieran Donaghy's

George Chilton's

Ben Trawick-Smith's


Adrian Underhill and Jim Scrivener's

It's really annoying that Blogger, whether intentionally or unintentionally, has made it impossible to change the name of the blogs on the blog list. So, the latest additions have their original blog names without the owner's names that I usually put. The reason why I have the owner's names is that some of us know the blogs by their owners rather than the name of their blog. By having the owner's name as well, the blogs become easily searchable.
