Blogspot's Missing Blogroll Thumbnails

I've noticed a growing trend in the ballcard blogging world.  Many of us have blogrolls in our margins that are updated each time another one of us makes a new post.  If we include a jpeg of the card in our post, this card shot appears as a thumbnail in the blogroll.  Well, those thumbnails are slowly disappearing from our blogrolls. 

I can't see my '74 set thumbnails in anybody else's blogroll.  And the thumbnails for the 1975 Topps (it's far out, man!), the Project Baseball 1976, the '59: one f/g card at a time, the 1964 Topps Blog, A Giant Blog, and My First Cards sites are not showing up on mine or others' sites either.  Anybody else notice this?  Any idea what's going on?  Blogger?

  1. I've noticed this, too. I have no idea why it's happening. It doesn't seem to happen for certain select blogs, but it does for a majority.

  2. I noticed that too. Another thing that is bothering me is on my blogger dashboard. I only see the last 20 updated blogs. It doesn't let me go back any further anymore.

  3. Wrigley Wax thumbnails keep showing up...maybe that is an omen that it will be a good season for the Cubs!

    Apparently it is a Blogger / Picassa issue. Here is a workaround

  4. Thanks for the workaround -- it worked for me. Now I just have to remember to do it each time I do a new post :)

  5. Thanks, WW, I'll have to try the workaround.

  6. Did you know that you can shorten your urls with AdFly and make dollars from every visitor to your shortened links.
