Something I didn’t like about the old version of this blog was that I tended to post too much for just saying “I’ve seen this interesting…”, “look at that post…” or “oh, check out the link…”, adding a one-line comment at best. This wasn’t really posting but collecting references.
However, pointing out interesting pieces of information can be useful as well. I love for example what Miguel de Icaza does using Google Reader (probably the only tool from Google I don’t like, do you?). And thank you to my beloved Bloglines (150 feeds in crescendo) I can do something more or less similar. You just need to set up a “blog” to publish the stuff you like with just a couple of clicks. Yuju!
In the last days I’ve been trying it out annotating several entries, and it seems to work pretty well. For example, you may see there the latest article by RMS on GNU and Linux (15th anniversary, or the 35th anniversary of Tubular Bells), Ara interviewed about biking in Málaga and Redes continuing in TVE (as far as I know there is no connection between these two elements :-)).
And as the new WordPress 2.3 includes a convenient widget for including RSS feeds, you can include all these entries in the right sidebar automatically. By the way, as La Puce has already noticed (10 points), I’ve done the same with the feed at del.icio.us.
Ah, and finally, as a bonus I’ve also used Bloglines to re-do the blogroll. They’ve a sharing mechanism to automatically generate HTML code to be embedded, this way is easier (and more accurate) to maintain the list of links. Good for Bloglines.
I will post less but, hopefully, better.
PS.- I promise I’ll stop with this meta-blogging thing!
