Updating The Blogroll

Jim at Parkway Rest stop has a list of things to do when you have blogblock. Item number one on his list is “update the ‘ol 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.

I'll try to get to it in the next couple days. The "Blogrolling" thing scares me (as do most cyber things), because I do not wish to entrust Mr. Blogroll to a disembodied cyber-thing. I probably should alphabetize it, but I sorta like it the way it is.

Mr. Recliner is still the best idea.

I think you and I discussed this previously, but I find a blogroll to not serve much of a purpose.

It's a long list of blogs read/recommended, whatever. I do not think it does a good job of pointing people to other people's sites. Rather, links with posts about similar topics and trackbacks do that.

If it is for the blog owner's purpose of getting "fresh" material, why list it on the page? Just bookmark the sites within your browser.

Just my $.02 as I await the transfer of my domain to a new host.

I use both the blogrolling service, and have also manually entered blogs into my sidebar.

The manual entries do become easier over time, especially if you're cutting and pasting text, as opposed to writing code from scratch (I edit and write my blog so I type in my HTML coding). Old habits die hard.

If you can invent a faster method of doing this, you might find yourself in the money.
