Blogrolling With BlogBridge

Today we deployed one very interesting feature. But first, look at the Favorites section of the sidebar. Would you believe if I told you that this list is generated right from the “Favorites” guide in my BlogBridge client? The guide is being published as a Reading List. I’m simply dragging feeds to it, removing, renaming and tagging them as I wish and the BlogBridge Service does all the rest. Science fiction? No, absolutely not.

Here’s the HTML excerpt of this particular page:

<h2>Favorites</h2>
<script xsrc="http://www.blogbridge.com/rl/2/Favorites.js?tags=true" mce_src="http://www.blogbridge.com/rl/2/Favorites.js?tags=true"></script>
<p style="margin: 15px 0 0 20px;">
<a xhref="http://www.blogbridge.com/rl/2/Favorites.opml" mce_href="http://www.blogbridge.com/rl/2/Favorites.opml">
<img border="0" xsrc="http://blog.noizeramp.com/images/readinglist.gif" mce_src="http://blog.noizeramp.com/images/readinglist.gif">
</a>
</p>

You can see that the list of blogs/feeds is generated by the JavaScript scriptlet provided by the BlogBridge service for my favorites reading list. This scriptlet gives immediate access to the most fresh version of the reading list I publish which makes my site a little bit more dynamic and keeps maintenance at its minimum.

A little geeky? There’s another, more official post rich on technicalities available on the BlogBridge home site.

That’s one small step for BlogBridge… one giant leap for blogkind. ;)

Have a good time!
