The links in the sidebar of this blog have been reorganized

WordPress.com provides for a Blogroll in the sidebar. This is supposed to be a list of links to other blogs recommended by the author of this blog. I had been putting all of my recommended links there. Links that are not to blogs have now been shifted to new sidebar lists called, Interesting Links, and RSS Feed. Some of the technical reasons are discussed in the next pane.

Part of the strength of blogging is the network of bloggers recommending other blogs. The blogroll is there to facilitate this networking.

I knew that I probably shouldn’t be mixing links to interesting sites within the blogroll, but to create a separate list of links seemed like a painful process. It turns out that WordPress.com has a simple way to accomplish this — it is just not obvious or intuitive.

It seems that the contents of the Blogroll can be organized under any number of headings. The default heading is Blogroll. All I had to do was create one or more headings for my links.

Part of the confusion is due to WordPress.com calling these Blogroll headings, “Categories.” It turns out that this is not the same as the Categories for the articles.

I am grateful to having this explained in an article that appeared today called, Understanding Blogrolls, Links and Categories,

So as of today, at this blog, this blogroll consists of three categories: blogroll, Interesting Links, RSS Feed.
