Push, Pull, & Blogrolls

Clark @ 8:47 am

Well, I finally found the time to add a blogroll to my site. This is a list of the blogs you read and/or recommend, so I wanted to include all those I read regularly.

It could have been unbelievably easy, as WordPress has the ability to import an OPML file of your blog list. Unfortunately, while Feedblitz has a menu option to export your subscriptions, the output file was broken, so I had to do it by hand.

I know most use an RSS feeder to track blog entries, but I find that if I have to remember to go out to a site, it doesn’t happen. If it comes into my inbox, I’ll deal with it. I’m a push kinda guy, I guess, so I use Feedblitz to send blog entries to me by email. And that’s how I put a box on my blog so you can subscribe via email. I like their service, even if bits still need to be worked on. Hey, for the price (free) it can’t be beat.

I realize there are many others I should be reading, but I’m trying to strike a balance between staying on top of things and getting my work done! I’ll try and keep the blogroll carefully matched to what I’m actually reading, but no promises. Now, there should be a way to make it work automatically, but while I *get* technology conceptually, I’ve lost the ability to keep up practically just as a bandwidth issue. Sigh.
