Bloglines is My Friend



LISHosts just had some database woes, and as a result, my last 4 posts were lost (Blake restored from Sunday’s backup – thank goodness for backups). Dang, I thought!

But no problem after all – here’s what I did:

  • I subscribe to my own blog using Bloglines, so I clicked that feed under “My Feeds”
  • Down at the bottom of the screen, there’s as Display button, with the wording “Display items within the last…” and a drop-down menu that gives a few options
  • I changed the drop-down to Week (I usually have Session picked)
  • Voila! My 4 lost posts appeared! Yippie!

And now I have to repost those stray posts. So – if this happened to anyone else, here’s something to try for recovery.

    Hi, David
    Bloglines is my friend too! I learned about it in your KCMLIN sponsored “Blogs, Wikis, and other emerging trends” workshop. I’ve learned so much as a result of subscribing to your feed, the “Shifted Librarian” feed, the “Information wants to be free” feed, etc. Thanks!
    I’m also nuts about Wikis. I created one for a committee I am on at the library. It’s great to have a centralized location for all our “stuff.” Right now we are creating bookmarks on the Wiki that will be used to educate library customers about electronic resources provided by the library.
