Day Ten: Build a Better Blogroll

Today, let’s continue to weave the fabric of the blogosphere using one of the web’s essential tools: links.

Today’s assignment: use a widget to create a blogroll, a list of links you love that you want to share with your readers.

Here’s how:

  1. First, decide what kind of widget you want to use: the Blogs I Follow widget, or a Text widget.
  2. Next, click the button below to open the Customizer, then select Widgets, and add the widget you want to use.
  3. Finally, customize the widget’s settings and/or add your text, then click Save & Publish.

Recommendations are like getting advice from a friend rather than blindly searching the internet; adding them is a no-brainer — and often comes with traffic-building benefits.

Open the Customizer

The Blogs I Follow Widget will generate a list of your most recently-followed blogs automatically, while the Text Widget requires you to enter text and links yourself. Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.

Cheers,
