UPDATED: bsolah's new blogroll information is here: http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3373106

Hey guys - I started a blogroll that we can all post on our sites and improve traffic and rankings.

I have removed the original information to cut down on confusion. Please visit bsolah's thread for new blogroll info!

Hi guys - keep 'em coming! I'll add them as I have time, but for sure this weekend. Be sure to follow the directions on the blog entry - I'll add the links from the info you leave in comments.

Thanks!!

Hi, Kelly! Cool Beans, thanks so much for doing this. :) I added your code to my blog and posted my blog address in your comment section.

Okay, you're all on the blogroll - Thanks for joining!

Kelly,

There is an error in the link to my Cognitive Elements of Teaching blog on the blog roll. It should be http://mrscherr.blogspot.com/ you have an extra / and a * and another /.

Just an FYI!

KellyC
07-27-2006, 10:28 PM
Fixed! You should all make sure your links work - I made a copy/paste glitch on that one, which cause the dead link.

It looks like I'm going on a bike trip this weekend (yeah!), so I'll add links up until tomorrow afternoon, then catch up on Sunday night with any I get over the weekend.

Hi Kelly - I have it on mine now too, thanks. How come I'm not on the Wordless Wednesday blogroll though? :-(

KellyC
07-28-2006, 02:24 AM
Hello Simi - you have to sign up to get on the Wordless Wednesday blogroll and I think the author just had a baby, so she may be backlogged. goto http://www.wordlesswednesday.com (or it may be blogspot) and follow the directions. I'm not on it yet either -nor thursday thirteen. But you can participate without being on the blogroll.

Does that answer your question?

Yes, I did sign up but as you said she maybe backlogged. No problem. Thanks for answering my question. :-)

This is the kind of roll I was looking for. It would be great if we could get all AW members to join. I recently implement the 'Bloggers Against Torture' blogroll to my own blog, and only did so now because of this cool new code I found. If you look at my blog (http://benjaminsolah.com/blog) it looks very cool.

I'm not sure how it works, but I'll post it here and someone more knowledgable can decipher it for us.

I'm not sure which of the graphics on your site coincides with the code you show here. But it would be great to have a graphic of some sort to link with the blogroll. I don't show the blogrolls that way on my site, but many people do, so it would be great. I just don't know anything about design. I can only copy/paste;)

bsolah
07-31-2006, 07:12 PM
Look for the section in the sidebar with the graphic 'this blog is anti-torture.' The blogroll is quite long, but this condenses the 'roll to a small window that scrolls through the list, taking up far less room.

KellyC
07-31-2006, 07:49 PM
okay - yes I did see that one. It's a good way to condense the blogroll.

Dawno

Wonderful idea Kelly, thank you. This is the kind of great stuff that makes our forum a real community - you folk are the best!

Talia
07-31-2006, 10:08 PM
hi kelly

it doesn't seem to be working for me! i've checked some of the blogs where people say they have added the code but for the life of me i don't see what's happening. when i added it to mine i just got a blank banner at the top of the page - not too appealing - so i took it off

can you pls provide a link to a page where it is working so i can see what it's supposed to do/look like etc

KellyC
07-31-2006, 10:14 PM
Talia - I'm not sure why it didn't work for you. If you go to Simran's (Judi S) blog, (http://everythingindian.blogspot.com/) she has it on her sidebar. It's just a list, nothing fancy at all at this point. On my blog, (http://kellycurtis.blogspot.com) I use flooble's plus/minus condenser thingies, so teh AW roll is right in with the rest of my blogrolls (ride hand sidebar.)

It shouldn't be a banner at all, just a list of links.

Anyone else having this problem?

By the way, you can also put a link on your sidebar that says AW BLOGROLL and direct it to a post. Then in the post, list the blogroll. I've done that before too.

Oh, and Dawno - you're welcome! Glad I could finally give back to this incredible community (however small my contribution may be;))

Talia

I'm in the process of tweaking the script for the Bloggers Against Torture blogroll for the AW one. I just need a new graphic, which shouldn't take too long.

bsolah
08-09-2006, 05:47 PM
The question remains with the graphic, do we having writing on it?

bsolah
08-09-2006, 06:02 PM
Ok, I've done it. Things like the text, height of the blogroll's list box and of course, the image can be changed if there's any suggestions.

You can see it at my blog. Once me and a few others decide that it's good enough, I'll post the code.

KellyC
08-09-2006, 06:04 PM
I'm up for whatever y'all wanna do! On my blog, I scrunch my blogrolls into flooble script, so my readers won't see the graphic.

Thanks for working on it, though - most people on the roll would use it, I think.

KellyC
08-09-2006, 06:20 PM
I saw it - it looks really good. Thanks for doing that! And the scrolling is nice. But like I said, on my blog it will be condensed. Here's the link to Benjamin's blog, if you guys can't find it: http://www.benjaminsolah.com/blog/ .

And I've added you to the blogroll, but it usually takes a little while before it loads up.

Could you please add this to our bulletin board of sticky posts? You're welcome to change the name to something different, to avoid confusion. Maybe "Put the AW Blogroll on your site" or something to that effect.

If you can think of a better way of organizing the stickies so this one gets attention, without filling up the whole page, I'm up for that. We just don't want it to get lost.

Thanks!

Talia, I have tried to contact you in a more private way, but it doesn't work for me. I battled agoraphobia for close to twenty years on and off and have a feature on my website that was publishe in two major newspapers on that subject. if you are interested go to www.sylviaresnick.com for a look see. I can be reached for any questions, comments, etc. if you want to contact me. chicagogal.

In Internet Explorer you can highlight the text you want to use, right click and select copy - hey presto, you just need to paste it wherever you need (select insert point, right click again and paste).

Works for me!

Not just in Internet Explorer, but pretty much everywhere.

You can also do it by using CTRL X to cut, CTRL C to copy, and CTRL V to paste. :)

Ok, HELP ME! How do I do this? I'm using Wordpress and I see no place where I could paste the code to add the blogroll. Where do I go inside Wordpress? How do I do this? I want to use the condensed box! PLEASE HELP!

VeggieChick, I've had trouble adding blogrolls to my wordpress.com blogs. I'd be interested to hear how to fix this problem.

Put it in the sidebar in your template.

VeggieChick
10-02-2006, 12:20 PM
I tried doing that (putting it on the sidebar), but to use the condensed box, I'm supposed to include two sections of code in different places in the template. One goes on the sidebar, but what about the other one?

L M Ashton
10-02-2006, 12:30 PM
You're using the code from flooble.com or someplace else? If it's from flooble, all the instructions you need are there. It's broken down into the two steps and each step tells you exactly where to add the code.

Have you given it a try? If not, give it a try and tell us how it goes. If so, what are the results? Any problems? If you had any problems, please be very specific and give us a link to where you posted it.

KellyC
10-02-2006, 03:13 PM
I've heard that bloggers hosting for free at WordPress can't use blogrolls. I pay for my hosting, so it's not a .worpress.com extension, and I can modify my sidebars, but another blogroll host told me others have had trouble too.

Sorry!

asorum - thanks for bumping the thread. Good idea!

Cool! I wrote a post that got sticky!

Sorry Joanne, I've been gone to a conference, so very sporadic with email, etc.

I think I'm all caught up on additions to the blogroll. I just checked my Blogger post where this thing resides and it's looking very wonky (what's new with blogger??). I don't know what's going on there. But I'm still receiving email updates from there, as far as I know.

But I've also added a post to my current Wordpress site, just in case it never straightens out. Here it is: http://2passthetorch.com/2006/08/18/absolute-write-blogroll/

Comments at either place will forward to my email box. But I haven't been checking AW lately, so I don't know if I'll get questions here. Make sure you go to the blog! Thanks!

KellyC
11-04-2006, 09:06 PM

Hello all! I just thought I should give you a heads up that life is pretty nuts for me right now (good nuts), and I apologize if I've missed people who've added the blogroll.

I haven't been in this forum for over a month, so it's really important you follow the directions at the beginning of this thread and leave a comment on my blog. These comments should automatically forward to my email (although some have not, which caused confusion.) I'm very sorry if I missed your comment and didn't add it to the blogroll. Please just be persistent and patient;)) Both.

I also haven't been checking this thread at all, so if you asked me a question here, I hope someone else answered it!

Thank you for your patience - the blogroll is awesome and it generates quite a lot of traffic. I appreciate your help in keeping me on top of it!

Hi. I am blogging on a collaborative political site, but I don't have any control over the format or sidebar, I'm just a participant.

Can I join the blogroll and then put the blogroll code on my personal website (which points to AW and my political blog anyway)

KellyC
02-23-2007, 03:36 PM
Hello Absolute Writers!

We have about 40 writers on the blogroll now, so I stole devised a code that makes the blogroll a scrolling section, rather than one that fills the whole sidebar. You can see it in action on the sidebar of my blog (http://2passthetorch.com). If you're interested, here's the code. Have a great day!

Hi guys! Make sure you're leaving a message on my blog if you've posted the blogroll and want me to add your link. I don't check here very often, so I'm sorry if I've missed any questions.

Here's the code for a scroll bar that's a little shorter, if you want it. It's code for Wordpress, but maybe it will be helpful;) Some of you guys have way cooler code than I have, though, so...

<br />
<div id="menu">Absolute Write Blogroll</div>
<div style="height:150px; overflow:auto;">
<a href=" http://2passthetorch.com/2006/08/18/absolute-write-blogroll/"><br />Click here to join</a>

<br />

I'll check around here and see who I may have missed, but if you don't see you're link on the blogroll and you've put it on your blog already, please send me a reminder! I'm a little scattered these days.

Ten days left before my first manuscript deadline - EEEEK!

Thanks for your patience,
Kelly

I've added the AW blogroll to two of my blogs. Christy's Coffee Break (http://christyscoffeebreak.blogspot.com/) and

Thank you very much!

I can't seem to make it work on Blogger. Probably I'm doing something wrong - but it captures a whole bunch of other stuff in my sidebar and adds it to the scroll box...weird.

I love the newer version of blogspot - beta. It is so easy to use and add anything you like to the sidebars w/o digging through tonnes of code like the old version.

This set of blogs is actually what I had on my webpage - but I've transferred them all to blogger because it's much easier to use. So the blogs don't change - they are set. http://solasachanalba.blogspot.com/ Not too exciting.... travel blogs, personal blogs, expat stuff, lots that only friends and family would be interested in.

Started a new blog for our adventures as volunteers which won't happen till autumn. Want this one to be much more interesting and descriptive which is why I've joined this forum. Not much here since we haven't gone yet! http://volunteersabroad.blogspot.com/

Hi, I've tried all of the different blogroll codes and all of them are giving me errors on the page. I'm sorry but I've had to delete them. (So sad)

My blogs are Christy's Coffee Break and A Hint Of Poetry.

I'd love to join the AW Blogroll again when there's a code that's compatible with Blogger.

If anyone wants to exchange links I'm having a link swap over at my Coffee Break Blog.

Thanks!

I've just moved my blog over to a self-hosted wordpress thing, and I can't get the blogroll to work. I've tried posting the javascript, but it just shows me the script instead of adding the blogroll.

Can anyone help?

Cath, where are you adding the code? It should work, both you and Rhymer because I'm on wordpress and a lot of bloggers are on blogger.

Cath
05-24-2007, 06:47 PM
I can't put it in the side bar because mine runs on a widget, but I've tried posting it in a post and it doesn't seem to work that way either.

It's just struck me I may be being very dumb indeed... Hang on.

ETA: Yup. Dumb. It's working now. I pasted it as text, not code :o

update - I was finally able to get the AW blogroll up in my sidebar on blogger! I have no idea what I was doing wrong, but it's fixed now. If you use blogger and want to see how I imbedded the blogroll you can just look at the source code from your "view source" dropdown in your browser toolbar.

Thanks for doing this Kelly!

I just added my personal blog, The Road Less Traveled (http://thoughtsontheroad.blogspot.com/), to the list (and added a comment to your blog).

Whoops I didn't see the date on this before I added this to my blog. Hope it's still going. KellyC- I went through the steps but the place where I added it on my site did not put a clickable link. It just has the code there. Did I do something wrong? Let me know, if you're still here.

Lavinia

Lavinia
06-04-2007, 08:41 PM
OK...I just read Kelly's post above with the new code. That one worked...there is now a clickable link now but it says something like click here or something, not blogroll or anything cool. Also, the actual code (numbers, symbols and letters) are listed below it. I don't really want all that there. Can anyone help me without confusing me (it's a tall order I know).

Hi all! I'm still here periodically and I'm so thrilled that we have such an awesome list on this blogroll! My roll seems to work almost all the time, so I'm glad you're all working the glitches out of your codes, etc. If I knew more about that stuff I could try to be more helpful;)

In the meantime, just keep leaving your links for me on my blog and I'll keep adding you! And if there's still an issue in this thread that is unresolved, please leave me a comment on my blog (http://2passthetorch.com/2006/08/18/absolute-write-blogroll/) - those comments I tend to see right away.

Thanks!

By the way, do you know our blogroll is over 60 blogs now?

Hey guys - I started a blogroll that we can all post on our sites and improve traffic and rankings.

Here's the code:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http://rpc.blogrolling.com/display.php?r=500ce34a7edd82274791958e087c64fb"></script>

Just put it on your site and goto my AW Blogroll post (http://2passthetorch.com/2006/08/18/absolute-write-blogroll/)on my site to complete the process.

You can also see what the blogroll looks like on my sidebar.

I think this is different than anything other AW-ers are doing, but if not, let me know and I'll join yours!

Updated to add:
I thought I should give you a heads up that life is pretty nuts for me right now (good nuts), and I apologize if I've missed people who've added the blogroll.

I haven't been in this forum for over a month, so it's really important you follow the directions in this post and leave a comment on my blog. These comments should automatically forward to my email (although some have not, which caused confusion.) I'm very sorry if I missed your comment and didn't add it to the blogroll. Please just be persistent and patient.

Thank you for your patience - the blogroll is awesome and it generates quite a lot of traffic. I appreciate your help in keeping me on top of it!

Dear Kelly, I just a newbie here, and the first interesting post that I found in this forum is Your post. Could I join this great Blogroll to my my blog?

Many Thanks,

Goonie

Stormy - I don't use the flooble script for the AWroll (but you can make your own here (http://www.flooble.com/scripts/expand.php#get)) - I think people get better traffic from having the roll static somehow. I use wordpress and have a partial box showing and this is my code:

<div id="menu">Absolute Write Blogroll</div>
<div style="height:150px; overflow:auto;">
<a href=" http://2passthetorch.com/2006/08/18/absolute-write-blogroll/"><br />Click here to join</a>

By the way, you guys, we've been blogrolling for over a year now and our AW roll is almost 80 strong. How fun! I'm sorry I haven't been here to answer questions (or private messages). I'm really not antisocial - just absent;))))

Rest assured that it's atypical for me to miss a comment on my blog, though. I think I have everyone added. Please let me know if I missed someone.

KellyC
11-20-2007, 04:49 PM
Sometimes my formatting will go weird like that if something is too wide. Maybe a link is really long and bumps into the sidebar? Or maybe the sidebar code is too wide. You can usually adjust that by messing with a number somewhere in the code.

You can tell I'm an expert because of my strong coding vocabulary;))

Maybe others have suggestions?

I actually had a quick flick through yesterday and a large majority have taken the roll off their blog. Which is kind of dodgy considering I still have it on mine and they're getting traffic from me.

Maybe leave a comment on their blog asking them to put it back on or you'll take their name off.

I had been talking to KellyC via PM a while back and she was looking for someone to take over the running as she's kind of flat out.

The problem is that some people who added the blogrolls previously have taken it off whilst still being on the list, so ripping off other members of sending traffic their way too.

I am thinking of removing this blogroll from my blog and beginning a whole new one. I will run it and keep track of who is keeping it on their blog. This is because this blog roll features lots of people who don't blog anymore, don't display it anymore or there are new members who'd benefit from being added.

KellyC
02-28-2009, 09:56 PM
Hi all - I know there has been a very long delay in getting the new blogs added to the blogroll. This is because blogrolling.com has done a major upgrade and has not allowed me in to ad new blogs for several months. You can read the status updates here: http://status.blogrolling.com/post/81457766/a-prototype-of-the-new-blogrolling-2-0-advertising

The new format will likely have ads included in the blogroll, so there should probably be some discussion about that here, in case people don't want to be included in a blogroll with that format.

I'm not able to keep up on the administration of the blogroll, though, especially if there will need to be discussion. I'm just not on AW enough. Would someone be willing to take over the administration? Please let me know.

Thank you!

bsolah
03-01-2009, 11:29 AM
Hey Kelly, see my previous posts.

I think it's better to just start afresh because of so many blogs not having the code on their blogs.

I'd be willing to take care of this.

KellyC
03-01-2009, 04:35 PM
Sounds great - thanks for taking the reins!!

I'm sorry I hadn't read your previous posts - of course it makes sense you take it over.

And I'm so sorry to those who have tried to add to the blogroll recently. I really thought I'd responded to everyone who did this. Blogrolling.com was just not available for the past several months, so I've been stuck.

Bsolah, Let me know when you write new instructions and I'll put a link on the blogroll post on my blog.

B, I'm proud of you taking on this challenge, though it does bring your sanity into even greater question. :D

One suggestion for those of us who are technology challenge, if the eventual link could include an optional code for a cool scroll such as Kelly has, more folks might display the blogroll.

You say, just how techno-challenged (ie: dumb) can one old coot be? The answer is: VERY. I've spent the morning redoing my links list after cleverly erasing them while changing templates on my so-simple-to-use-it's-boring Blogspot site.

To get some idea about a blogroll, check out bsolah's blog http://benjaminsolah.com/blog about halfway down on the right side. Kelly also has one on the right side of her blog.

In twenty-five words or less: A blogroll is a collection of related blogs.

Yeah, I'll be sure to do the code with the scrolling. It especially helps because we manage to accumulate so many blogs.

One thing, blogrolling.com is still down. It was meant to be up yesterday or the day before. There's still some glitches so stay tuned.

Blogrolling.com just Twittered this: http://www.blogrolling.com/ads.php
(http://www.blogrolling.com/ads.php)
So they might be up and rolling again? Thanks so much for all you're doing, bsolah!

I'm typed in blogrolling.com just now and the page is still loading. Sounds we're close to a relaunch.

Love your smiley Bayou Bill. The site is really slow right now. Probably cuz we're all on it right now blowing bubbles.

Is it coming up for you at all?

The site is there, but not doing much. I was able to delete an old site from the roll, but I can't do anything else. I tried to ping the site to update it and it just froze up. The captcha isn't working.

I know you're establishing a new blogroll - I did this just out of curiosity. It's been months since I've been able to access the site!

That's ok. It loaded up just now, but might wait till it becomes a bit more stable before I try and create a new roll.

I've found it's always much easier to sit on the shore and yell advice than to be the folks treading water out in the middle of some lake while dodging alligators and fighting off snakes while getting the suggestions.

That said, from my spot on the shore comes the following: Perhaps there could be two blogrolls. For instance, one might be for sites focused on fiction and writing fiction, while the other did the same for non-fiction subjects. Both rolls could have links to the other at the top of their lists. Maybe something like that would cut down on the length and increase use.

Don't know if that's viable and I'm NOT campaigning for such a set-up. This is strictly a FWIW suggestion.

It sounds interesting Bill, though the problem is, in my case at least, that my blog is very blurry when it comes to whether or not it's a writing blog.

I post writing stuff when I'm writing, but at the moment, all I seem to be posting about is job cuts, protests, and everything to do with the economic crisis. Sometimes I can relate that back to writing, like the million story ideas I've gotten.

Bayou Bill

Good point. It reminds me that, best I recall, the last list had a lot of blogs that focused on, or were exclusively about, non-writing issues. Perhaps something along those lines could be the "great divide?"

Cinderella time is approaching in my time zone. Here's hoping we all have a good tomorrow.

Later.

Yeah, I'd hate to divide the AW blogs, seeing as it's all about uniting right?

It's only the start of the fun here, 5pm. See you tomorrow.

Ok, added the new blogroll: http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3373106

Kelly, can you change your OP to tell people to go to the new one and can a mod sticky my thread?

GREAT WORK!

Installation was a snap, even for me.

Please add: Bill's Bilge http://billsbilge.blogspot.com/ to the new and improved, AW BLOGROLL!

You're added Bill, though something weird is happening with the apostrophe in your name. Will try to get that fixed.

Sweat it not. I'm okay with BILLS BILGE. Though if you ever do figure out the problem and how to get around it, please let me know.

This is no big deal, but if you do tinker with the link, I'd prefer using the following for the added bit of description. Tried to post it earlier but RL kept ringing the doorbell.

Not problems, but do you mind adding your request to the new thread? Don't want to create a trend here where people make requests at this thread instead of the new one.

No takers for the new blogroll? Is a mod able to remove this one as a sticky and add mine? Can people promote it?
