Mskes it easy to keep track of content that would make good blog posts.]]>
1) To some degree, it’s self-maintaining. It posts links to actual posts – links to a blog’s posts won’t show up if a blogger stops posting or a blog goes defunct.
2) Internally, the aggregator actually tells you how long it’s been since a blog has posted. This makes it very easy to identify which rss feeds are declining in usage. Then, in turn, it’s a simple step to check a blog to see what has changed – whether the rss feed has been altered, the site has moved to a new site or if the blog is simply dying.
If anyone has questions, let me know. John Dehlin is using the same plugin for his aggregator. Again, anyone with a WordPress blog can add this feature to his/her blog.
Theoretically, the more WordPress blogs in the ‘Nacle that use this, the better placement the ‘Nacle as a whole will get in Google searches.]]>
Clark, I bet that is why your name sounds so familiar. Of those listed, I was on Scripture-L the most; although, JOSEPH was probably a close second.
I also remember when Laura was writing her book. I believe I have a site or two in there.]]>
AML is a very active mailing list and is well worth joining. FAIR has a mailing list I used to be on but recently left as I couldn’t keep up with the volume.
But by and large most of the mailing lists are dead – blogs have overtaken them. Although a lot of the old timers, I note, never made the transition to blogs.]]>
Thanks for Commentful, Susan. That is so cool I could spit!]]>
