Blogroll Update: Using the ping form

Since the launch of blogrolling 2.0, several key features have been slow to come online. One of the features that is still missing is the monitoring of the update status on your blogs. The way it used to work was that when you updated your blog, your feed provider would send an update to who would then mark your blog as recently updated. This puts the ***New tag next to your blog and in the case of the 25 blog rolling blogroll, moves it to the top of the list.

An alternative is for bloggers to use the ping form provided by The ping form will set your blog’s status to recently updated and move it to the top of on the 25 blog rolling blogroll. For now, I recommend using the ping form as I do not know when will resume using feeds.
