Blog-Housekeeping

As I mentioned before, my blogroll is in need of a serious overhaul.  There are several blogs which have been deleted, lots of blogs which haven't posted anything in the last six weeks without an indication that this is a temporary hiatus (hey, we're all entitled to take a holiday, even from blogging) and more new blogs that I want to add.

Unfortunately, Blogrolling still appears to be hors de combat.

So, this afternoon I settled down to a prolonged session with my blog, my blogrolls (I have three separate ones for ease of searching) and Google Reader.  Clicking on each link, checking the blogs and adding them to my Google Reader feeds is a time-consuming business: I've managed to finish the clerical blogs and the UK blogs... the blogs from the rest of the world will have to wait until I've had a cup of coffee... and then I have to figure out how to get them all listed in my sidebar...

I've also noticed another problem.  Anna Arco's Diary won't register in Google Reader... which is a real pain (she's an outstanding writer.)  The site doesn't appear to have a feed.  Any suggestions as to how this problem can be overcome?

Mac:

You'll find Google Reader very handy.

Regarding Anna's Diary, well, Catholic Herald may simply need that as a suggestion... On the other hand, there are websites out there that can make RSS feeds for you from another, non-RSS, site; maybe Fr Tim has heard of one?

Hope this helps.

Scroll down a bit and look under the piccie of Newman in the sidebar: ta-da! Rolling list of updated BritCat blogs!

Good work, that man!

Thanks Mark...

Berenike - I have seen that site, but I'm actually more interested in having my own blogrolls on the blog ... and I'm not keen on having the updates on the blog itself.

...and many of my favourites aren't Brits!
