Blogroll Finally Updated! – You Are What You Read

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If you remember, a couple of days ago, I created a weblog post where I was actually indicating some of the different issues I was having while updating the blogroll from this particular weblog. I probably should have created that weblog post some time ago, because, right after I created it, Miguel Guhlin was kind enough to provide me with plenty of different tips I could try out in order to fix it by creating a post directly in his weblog: Blogroll Management.

So after trying out a couple of things and different tools I have finally decided to go for the approach of making use of Bloglines in order to import all of the different links as part of my blogroll. Originally, I had about 700 Web feeds to work on, but from there onwards I have actually performed a bit of housekeeping for the blogroll and added those that I feel would be the most representative ones. 448 in total.

I still have got the other 250 which are basically aggregators, tools related blogs, etc. etc. Yes, that is right. All this means that I am not going to make use of Bloglines to manage my feeds. I am still quite satisfied with Omea Pro and will continue to make use of it for some time more. However, if you would still want to check out the feeds I regularly read on a daily basis you can find my Bloglines account over here. Or just simply read through the blogroll appearing now in the left column of the blog template.

I must say that I didn’t think that it would be just that easy to import the blogroll from Bloglines, but since they say that "you are what you read" I guess it made sense that in the end I would be sharing mine with you all so you would be able to see where I am coming from and what I read nowadays. More than anything else because, as you would be able to see, there are a number of different categories I have put together that will help me set up the direction I will be taking with elsua for what is left of 2007.

That is why you would notice how I would be talking not only about Knowledge Management and Learning, like I have been doing all along thus far, but also topics that deal with Social Computing: Metablogging, Social Media, Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0. At the same time, I have shared as well some of the different weblogs I am following up from the Spanish blogosphere, along with some other Technical Blogs.

And, finally, you will notice as well how I have been including a number of the different weblogs that I keep following on a regular basis from some of my IBM colleagues or from other folks who talk on a regular basis about IBM related topics, specially around the world of KM and social computing.

Thus there you go. After a long wait, my blogroll is now up and running and will be updated on a regular basis as we go along. I think that it is now time for me to go, have a good rest and get over that nasty stomach bug that has nearly knocked me down over the last day or so. But more on that later. Time to recover now…

Worth while sharing it along?
