Radio Tip: Check out http://www.blogrolling.com/ I found out about this in the book Blog On by Todd Stauffer (see Blog Books for more info on that book and many others), then I went to the Blogrolling site to start reading their documentation. Over 80,000 sites have been Blogrolled using this service.
Doubtless you have seen many people maintaining long lists of navigation links on the sides of their web pages. I plan to explain about that in my Link Types story, but in the mean time use Jenny Levine's Radio Docs 101 how to. For someone, like me, who is a relative beginner to HTML, it seems like a big hassle to maintain this kind of thing. Well let http://www.blogrolling.com/ do the dirty work for you. Allegedly it can work for any of the major Blog Software choices. I plan to write this up in one or more of my stories, after it sinks into my brain which one it belongs in. You go to this url, register (it is free), and create YOUR blogroll, where your links will be stored. They provide the code to be inserted in our Radio for it to display the blogroll provided - documentation to read because Radio is but one of many software packages that can use this.
Once we have populated whatever we want to populate into this http://www.blogrolling.com/ service, we will need to republish Radio, from Open Radio Application / Radio / Republish, or whatever the equivalent deal is for people on some other Blog Software. Jake Savin has written up documentation for how to make this work for Radio Outliner.
There's a couple different ways to add more to the list. You can do one at a time type in title, description, url, then let http://www.blogrolling.com/ manage the collection for you, or you can get a Bookmarklet (I thought that was a Moveable Type feature that Radio Userland did not have, but now I see it is an optional feature added to our Browser ... see my MT compared to RU story) on your Browser Favorites toolbar. When you surfing the Internet and see a cool site you want added to your Blogroll, you can click the Bookmarklet, and up pops a window for you to edit what you want to say about this site, click add, and now it is added to your Blogroll. Your Radio Application does not need to be running on your PC, because this is added to your Blogroll at the http://www.blogrolling.com/ site, thanks to communications from your browser, while your Radio weblog has a standard link to this outfit.
http://www.blogrolling.com/ provides us with cut and paste code to put in our Radio Template Preferences so this will work. At least that is the theory. I have not tried it yet. You need to visit http://www.blogrolling.com/ to backup your Blogroll because what is on your PC with Radio is the code to access your Blogroll in http://www.blogrolling.com/
This is integrated with www.weblogs.com
Careful, you do need to read the FAQ on this.
