Blogroll is back

The blogroll on the left side has been empty for a long while. It used to be automatically updated via a  Google Reader feature but since the demise of Reader it stopped working. I hadn’t found any way to replace it with another automated system so today I manually created a blogroll. To avoid typing too much I exported my feeds from Feedly as OPML then converted that to a CSV file using this utility web service. Finally I re-arranged, cleaned up and deleted the extra data from the CSV in LibreOffice Calc and added a formula to make <a href> links out of the names and urls. Then I simply pasted the resulting list into a WordPress text widget.
