Out of sorts

I feel very out of sorts with my blogging right now. Although my posts aren't particularly insightful in general, I'm having a tough time just finding the time to cobble anything together.

It sounds trivial, but it started when my blogroll inexplicably vanished from my blog. I didn't do anything to edit or change the layout. I just woke up one day and *poof* it vanished. I'm not sure how each you consume other blogs, but I'd start by going to my site and going through my blogroll. It's probably inefficient and leads me to miss some posts, but it's been my formula for the last five years.

Blogger help has said they are working on the issue, but we're going on three weeks now. It actually happened to many other people, from the looks of it on the forum. I highly doubt that they are going out of their way to help us though. At the end of the day, we are using a free platform, and although they screwed up, they don't have much incentive to repair what was done.

Luckily, a fellow blogger helped me to view a cashed version of my blog, and he was kind enough to pull the list I had of blogs I had. I'm dreading it, but I think I'll soon start repairing my blog roll manually, one by one. At least I have the list.

Ok, enough whining. Here's are two relic cards, that came together in a lot I bought not too long ago. I needed the Pineda, and the Beltran was a nice bonus. Apparently there are two different relic designs - an A and B versions. I didn't know that when I bought them, but noticed upon arrival.


  1. I didn't lose mine. I have 154 blogs on my blogroll if you want to raid them. I've been feeling some writer's block myself lately but it'll come back, it always does. The new NBA season starting up will prompt me to write some posts for sure.

  2. Huh. I go a link to, which is the same place where I create a new post. I use it like you use the blogroll on your blog, but it also gives most of the first paragraph of the newest blog entries. This way you can see if you want to read it or not.

  3. I lost my blogroll too, but since I "follow" them all (or the vast majority, at least), it was quick and simple to add them back into the sidebar with a couple clicks. I usually just read blogs through the main page.

    While we're talking about formatting, you might think about removing the list of labels from you sidebar.. the thing is massive! haha. But that's just some friendly constructive criticism and you can do whatever you want, obviously!

  4. I keep mine pretty up to date if you want to take any from me.
