Adding a Blogroll to your blog sidebar
February 28, 2007
You may want to let visitors to your blog know what websites you frequently read or bookmark. You can add a list of links, also known as a blogroll, to your sidebar with a Link TypeList.
If you have a long list of links, you may want to look into a third-party social bookmarking tool. Social bookmarking services make it easy to add a new link to your favorites and allow you to add the list of links to your blog.
del.icio.us offers a widget, to easily add your Link Roll to your blog. Other widgets from del.icio.us include a Tag Roll and badge. You'll find more information on how to integrate del.icio.us with your TypePad blog here.
Other services, like BlogRolling, provide you with HTML you can add to your blog sidebar with a Notes TypeList.
Bloglines is an online feed reader that also offers you the option to Share Your Blogroll.
After adding the blogroll script to your blog using a widget or TypeList, the list will automatically update when you add a new link to your social bookmarks. This keeps you from having to update your blog each time you find a new website.
