Blogroll : what tool ?

  • Heya
    Was tool are you using for your blogroll ? blogrolling.com ? blo.gs ? other ?
    And how are you displaying your blogroll into your site ? opml WP import function ? rp-blogroll plugin ? blo.gs / blogrolling.com tools ?
    I’ve started using blogrolling.com and before my blogroll becomes too big I’d like feedback from others and maybe get a good idea or two 🙂

  • I guess most of us use WordPress’ in-built link manager to manage our blogrolls. You can import you links from blogrolling if you so desire.

    I use blo.gs with rp-blogroll

    does anyone get an error when using rp-blogroll?

    the argument I get is:
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/faisal/public_html/fpress/wp-content/plugins/rp-plugin-blogroll.php on line 112

    I’ve chmod’d the cache file and activated the plug

    Thanks

    The good thing about bloglines is that it makes it much easier to keep up with all the blogs on your blogroll. I used to use the inbuilt links manager, but it was a drag keeping up to date with everyone, deleting dead sites and adding new ones. Sorting links into folders/categories is much quicker in bloglines too.

    The crappy thing about bloglines is they don’t format the blogroll as a list, the way WP does, but you could make it look like one with inventive CSS 🙂

    True, they don’t. But I just link to the Bloglines-managed list with a “My Blogroll” link. It keeps my site from getting too cluttered (as you can see, 40 blogs would take a major toll on my sidebar).

    So is the only benefit to using a blogroll (when compared to using the “links” section in WP) that it updates itself when sites die?

    “So is the only benefit to using a blogroll (when compared to using the “links” section in WP) that it updates itself when sites die?”

    Yes, and some more advanced blogrolls move the recently updated feeds to the top of the list.

    Got it. Thanks, macmanx. Btw, I like the way you’ve got your blogroll on a separate page. More blogs could stand to gain favor from such a method. 🙂

    Before moving to W v1.5, my sidebar was a mess (take a look at the Favored Freeware page, all of that was in my sidebar). Now, thanks to Pages in the new v1.5, my sidebar is tidy and homely. (Did that just sound like a bad commercial?)
