Check out our improved “Polizeros mini-Blogroll” in the left column, now with categories. Click a folder name to get a list of blogs. Then click a blog name.
If the blog name has the orange rss symbol, then you’ll get a list of posts on that blog. Click again to read more of a post. If the blog name has a blue dot, then you’ll just go to the blog home page, with no fancy widgetry involved.
All of which goes to show why blogs should always have a rss feed. Blogger blogs do not come with a rss feed built-in (Use Feedster to generate it.) Movable Type and WordPress, being modern, do.
PS To use the widget, you don’t need to understand any of the techie stuff, just click away!
