Ringsurf changes

Too bad about the changes made to the ringsurf system. Have you tried it lately? I used to like to run through the list of blogs on the two rings I belong to, but now when I do that each blog has an advertising bar across the top of the screen - oh how I hate advertising! So now 1/2 of my screen is taken up with stuff I don't want to see! Here is a photo of my computer showing my blog - see what I mean?!? And notice at the top that the address listed is not my blog, even though I am looking at my blog. When you go through the ringsurf system now, all addresses are ringsurf websites.
And it used to be that I could click on "next" on the blogring logos and run through all the blogs that way. Now if you click "next" or "previous" it takes you to the ring master list all the time, with the advertising bar on every page. So I guess I will bookmark the blogs I visit most frequently and not run through the rings anymore. It's too bad - I used to enjoy that :(
Anyway, onto more positive things... I have cut and pieced my strips for Orange Crush. Here they are. I just used yardage for the lights since I don't have many light scraps. I'll get the cross cuts done and piece the 4 patch blocks - if I don't get called in to work tonight.

  1. I am pretty new to reading and writing blogs, but I go to google.com and made my own reader (simple enough) and then you can put in addresses of the blogs you read and every time there is a new one it comes up on there. Much easier than checking all the blogs on bookmarks!

  2. I totally agree about ringsurf! Like you I have my favorite blogs to check out regularly but I did like to go around the rings from time to time. bummer!

  3. I'm the same. I used to go round the ring once in a while. Maybe not now.

    I'm going to have to do the new mystery. I can feel myself getting sucked in

    love and hugs xx

  4. I use Bloglines to track my blogs. It's a lot easier than bookmarks.

    I like the fabrics you're using for Orange Crush.

  5. I like your orange crush fabrics. Somehow I get a header and each time I click next I just go to another blog...and I can leave comments, and then don't have to search for the ring thingy... I wonder what I did.... (Hmmm now if I could just find that incredibles fabric....)

  6. That's really too bad! It was nice to press "next". What I do is use google Reader to keep tabs on blogs. I like the layout better than blogline!

  7. You might like to try a blog reader. The two I'm familiar with are Google Reader and NetNewsWire. So easy to use. In NetNewsWire I just have to press the space bar to scroll through all the new blog pages each day (or whenever I get time! LOL)
