Rollin' with the homies
I just wanted to say a quick "THANK YOU!" to Jason of blogrolling.com. I'm probably one of the last bloggers out there to start updating my blog reads with the service -- but you know what they say -- better late than pregnant.

When I got my first link-list set up, I noticed the "recently updated" image prepend wasn't showing up on my list as updated. (I've tweaked my list so a little pink star shows up to next blogs that have recently updated.) However, some of the links on my list were showing up as updated on other blogs using Blogrolling. Convinced I'd broken it somehow, I wrote Jason. Before I even had time to check my e-mail again, there was already a reply there waiting for me, detailing the issue and the plans for a quick fix.

"If you set up the links after the site was on the weblogs.com list then it won't register until they update again and it's at the top of the list. It's a flaw in the logic of how the system currently runs the weblogs.com feed that I'm re-tooling from scratch."

So here's my PSA for the day: If you're not using Blogrolling yet, do so NOW. There's a reason everyone else is. Not only is it incredibly easy to set up, implement, and use -- and the support is lightning-fast -- that new "recently updated" feature is worth every penny. Oh wait, that's right -- it's FREE! You can save those pennies. And thanks again for the help, Jason!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Heh, *blush*

Oh no. Something else to add to my "to-do" list...

That is probably the single best app on the whole wide interneck. Jason is a dang code guru god thing.

I wasn't going to use it at first... but when I saw that "blogrollthis" bookmarklet - that was it! Using it now and loving it!! :)

Because of your recommendation, Robyn, I signed up and have it working on my blog now. This is gonna be one of those *don't know how I lived without it* kind of things!

Thanks! :-)
