missingYou may have noticed that I have been “dark” this past week. I have been working hard, revamping a couple of important pages on this site: Blogs I Follow and Ed-Tech Links.

Now, instead of feeding them in via Google Reader and Diigo, I am inputting everything myself. I realize this isn’t the ideal solution due to all the labor involved, but the feed situation wasn’t working for me. I didn’t like that all the links were not available here, and more importantly there was no order to them.

If you go to the Ed-Tech Links page you will now see all the links that I bookmark. The main difference from before is that I can now categorize them by type. I think this makes more sense, but if you still like seeing them the Diigo way, don’t fret I am still updating through that site. You can access them here. Or, if you prefer adding them to your RSS reader, go here.

Also, with this new system I am able to add comments regarding the various blogs I subscribe to. That way you can know a bit about it before you click through. But even cooler than that are the two little buttons to the right of my comments: Preview-16x16 . If you click on the first button you will get the RSS feed for that particular blog/site. The really neat feature is the second button. If you click on that you can read the most recent three entries for that site. So now you can sit back, relax and preview the site before you even go there or subscribe to it. I think that’s pretty slick!

As of the time of this posting I am still working out a few “bugs”, and I have a few more links to add, but overall I hope you like the new changes and find them to be easily navigable. As always, I am very much open to comments and/or suggestions.

A big thanks to Yannick for making the WordPress plug-in, Link Library, which makes this all possible.
