Posting Is Light

I'm back on a revamped Harry's Place blogroll - for reasons as mysterious as those which led to my removal ... as I said about Expat Yank a couple of years back :

Having a favourite blog undergo a makeover is like the wife returning from town with radical new hairstyle. You'll get used to it and grow to love it, but what was wrong with the way it was before ?

I don't know why, but the new HP layout has a touch of the Iain Dale's about it. Or something. Not sure it's got the same bold identity as before - the previous layouts shouted 'Harry' to a visually impaired man 50 feet from the monitor and this doesn't. Get more red in there for starters !

I'm fully entitled to say this of course, as I chose my layout and colour scheme from the 2003 blogger defaults - and since then it's been like unto the laws of the Medes and Persians - unchanged and unchangeable.

Now if only Clive Davis would put me back ...

Blogging is light due to work-type things, have a look at some of these ... Ross at Unenlightened Commentary, Sam Tarran, and the mighty EU Referendum - easily IMHO the best, most informed blog around, its only drawback being that you have to sit and think when reading it. Gordon Brown being still doomed, the site Bloggers4Labour also offers entertainment to those of a sadistic disposition.

Harry's Place was revamped because they were hitting the bandwidth limits every month. If you ever tried to visit after 28th or so, the site was down until the month rolled over.

It can be frustrating when your blog mysteriously disappears from someone's blogroll.

*Pause as I gaze up and down Laban's blogroll*

Er hang on.....

Although thanks for the link in the post.
