    I just put together the Better Blogroll widget which allows you to display a configurable number of random links from your WordPress blogroll. This should help to combat link blindness while still allowing you to share the link love with more of your favorite blogs.

    It also gives your readers a better idea of what they're clicking on by displaying each link's description in a tool tip its category to it's right.

    Hey this is great! I was just wondering if anything else was out there like this. Can I make a suggestion? How about making it possible to add a micro-thumbnail to the left of the links to add some color to the blogroll? Would that be too hard to add in to the code?

    So that when you go to add an new link and it's description, you also have the option to place a link to an Image (and image dimensions to make sure it fits in the page correctly) that would sit just to the left of the link.

    This would be a great asset to boost traffic by adding faces and breath life into those lifeless links that sit on your page, and a great way to draw further attention to them. Slap up a great looking micro-thumb that draws attention and chances are someone is going to see it, and be more apt to click on that link.

    Just a though to add some life to the blogs.

    Thanks for the plugin, its great as it is!
