Let me roll it

I added a blogroll near the bottom of the sidebar today, and it was almost completely painless. Bloglines—which I use because it makes it easy to coordinate blog reading on two computers—has a way of turning your blog subscription list into HTML. The HTML it generated didn’t really fit it with the style of my sidebar, but it took only a few fairly straightforward search-and-replaces to fix it up.

Even though I didn’t used their code directly, I kept the little Bloglines ad in the ’roll because it was easier to start with their HTML than write it from scratch.
