I’m rebuilding my Following page (aka Blogroll). After dithering between trying to do it on Micro.blog as either a static page or as a category, I opted for creating a Following category because I think it will be easier to maintain.
- Created Following category.
- Added one short post per followed URL.
- Click Posts and Edit each Following post to check Following category. On the Web the category options only appear after 270 characters so getting short posts into a category requires this extra step.
Navigation: I wanted to put Following on my Navigation Menu, so I created a Page named “Following” and pasted the URL to the Following Category in the page content. On Micro.blog, if you only paste a URL into the Page content it creates a redirect.
So now it looks like there is a Page named “Following” in my navigation but it really sends you to the “Following” Category. See it here.
I’m adding only 2 - 3 blogs a day so I don’t spam up the MB Timeline too much so this will take awhile.
