This is probably one post which I’m writing for a selfish reason. (Ever another post is for you, gentle reader)
This started because of this thread, when I moved from blogger to WordPress, there were some features that I couldn’t replicate and one was my favorite blog list.
WordPress had an option earlier and they killed it and I didn’t invest too much time in finding out an alternate (that was the case until the above thread showed up.)
I did evaluate couple of plugins
- Feedzy Lite (I use this one on another site)
- WPRSS aggregator
Feedzy is a good plugin with some customization however, they lack an option where I can sort multiple feeds based on the date. Now, what does that mean all the blogs that I follow I’ll have to order them manually.
Now if I do that I’ll have to show some love to those bloggers. I don’t have issue with 3 of them.
- Cameron Lackpour (my older brother from completely different parent)
- John Goodwin (oh I don’t have to write anything about “The John Goodwin”
- Glenn Schwartzberg (he is my older brother from completely different parents’ older brother, so we are related in that way 😉 )
Rest of the folks, it’s really hard for me to sort their blogs 🙁
So I went with WPRSS. Now this one does the sort on its own, so no love to anyone, whichever post is recent will show up on my page and will show 3 posts from the respective blog.
The blogs that are going to show up here https://orahyplabs.com/popular-epm-blogs are written by people I personally know and whom I contacted and got permission to link their blogs.
Now off to my regular work 🙂
I need to look into that plugin! I was hoping to find something similar to what’s on Cameron’s blog roll…
There are a lot and I found these two the better among others. WP RSS has a paid one $30 every year which will then show an image and excerpt from each blog. I might do it 😉
