In what can only be described as an affront to the graph-like nature of the Web (web-like?) Joe Wiesenthal at the Stalwart has decided to eliminate his blogroll. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am extremely interested in what people are reading. Now, is a static list on a sidebar the way to go? Nope. So, if Joe doesn’t update his blogroll often, then best not to have it there. But, why can’t someone create a smart blogroll? Link it to my feed reader. Get statistics on what I’m reading, and generate it regularly from that. How about what I’m sharing with others or starring (for Google Reader people, like myself)? Or, maybe have the blogroll full of blogs being linked to. All of these would keep the blogroll updated and help discover new content. Oh, but linking to actual posts isn’t really what I’m thinking of… always seems to be a letdown when you try following someone else’s del.icio.us links or individual posts they are reading.
Maybe a WordPress plugin? Anyone? On WordPress.com, perhaps? Hello? Please?
