BlogRolling Will Cease Operation November 1st, 2010

From their site:

BlogRolling will be shutting down November 1st, 2010.

If you are not using BlogRolling code on your site anymore, you don’t need to do anything.

If you are using BlogRolling code on your site, you’ll want to follow these simple steps before the end of this month.

Get Your Links

If you want a list of the links in your BlogRoll, you have two options

  1. Sign in to your BlogRolling account to cut and paste links out of your control panel.
  2. Go to a page on your site that contains your blogroll and click on each link in your blogroll and copy down or bookmark the links you end up on.

Sorry, there is no “export” option in BlogRolling.

Clean Your Code

  1. Remove the blogrolling JavaScript code from your site.
  2. Not sure where the code is? “View Source” on your pages and search for “blogrolling” in the code.

Thanks for your support and patronage these many years! Happy blogging!

Note: 1389AD has already migrated 1389 Blog‘s blogrolls from BlogRolling.com to the built-in WordPress widgets. That involved manually copying and pasting roughly a thousand links. To my knowledge, at this time there is no available WordPress script plugin that would substitute for BlogRolling. It would be convenient to have an automatic mechanism to let other people display copies of one’s own blogrolls, but that feature apparently does not exist at this time.
