OK, here we go again  🙂   Of course, it was my fault that I’m going through this again, so I’m not holding anyone but myself responsible.

Part of claiming one’s blog on BL is to insert the HTML code they give you into a new post on your blog, which means that the previous post won’t work, probably because the link is old.

So, please feel free to otherwise disregard
