Bloglines is terrific!

A couple of days ago i posted about creating one blog for all Knights, to make it easier to keep track of eachother e.g. new posts and such, because i was visiting each blog seperately to see if there were any. I was never aware of any possibilities of monitoring stuff on the web, so i thought to create a solution. Thanks to some comments i got from fellow Knights, it has come to my attention that there are allready possibilities to keep track of eachoter. I am happy to say that i am using Bloglines now. It is a terrific service which let's you keep track of thing's. Instead of visiting each Knights blogs seperately, i only have to visit Bloglines to see whether or not there has been an update. So if you are somewhat like me (unaware of such a solution), i can highly recommend the use of it. Here's an example of what it looks like;

The "My Feeds" tab let's you have a look at all of your so called "feeds", which i can only define as to be the links you added. It can show you whether or not each of these links (feeds) had an update. Pretty simple :)
Although i still don't get that blogroll stuff. Hey Druss! How do you create a blogroll? I do not understand Bloglines explanation. And to those who are interested and missed the link within the post, here it is again; Bloglines.

Blogroll - they are basically a list of blogs that you look at listed in your sidebar. It is the list of knights that you currently maintain manually. You can automate this and get bloglines to update it for you, depending on whatever you are looking at using that.

To do this, you need to:

- go to home in bloglines (opens up automatically when you first load the page)
- click on "share you blogroll" under "publish, share & save"
- optionally specify a folder to use, or leave blank to publish the lot
- click generate HTML
- copy the code in the grey bit
- paste this code into your sidebar

and you've got it!
