Updating The Blogroll
Then again, that means I have to open “Mr. Template”, which is something that always gives me a case of the hot squirts.We’ve been meaning to update our blogroll, but like Jim the fear of screwing up the template always gives us pause. Then there’s always the excuse on a group blog of “it’s not my turn, I did the last update.”
We tried using the BlogRolling.com service, but it often seemed to be “down” and at times would “hang” our page loading. We wanted to have two blogrolls, one for New Jersey blogs and one for others, but no one over here could figure out how to use the Blogroll.com widget to make that happen. So the decision was made that we would manually enter the links into our template. Great, but no one does it.
Fear and laziness are the excuses, but now we are so far behind I don’t know where to begin. There has to be a zillion New Jersey blogs that should be on our New Jersey Carnival blogroll that aren’t, and the other blogroll, who knows.
Anyway, I think I did the last blogroll update. So I’m sticking with that story and opting for number six on Jim’s list:
Read a couple blogs and then head for Mr. Recliner: Yeah, that’s the ticket.P.S. If someone has a better way of blogrolling, please let us know.
