I haven't been too pleased with the new blog format being pushed by Google since they took over Blogger. My inital mistake was taking the bait to change to the new format. Then today I made the cardinal mistake of clicking on one of the blog administrator links under the guise of "I wonder what this does?"
What it did was f*** up my blog template beyond all repair. I finally had to reselect the template which wiped out all my customization, hence all of my links to breweries and other blogs are gone. I'll get them back on here as soon as I can.
