I have seen over the past few months when those of you who use Mister Linky’s widgets on your blogs have absolutely been scrambling. For whatever reason, he’s been going down and when he’s not up it throws you into a whirlwind.
I have been contemplating developing an alternative to Mister Linky that works in a different way — a way that if your blog is up, so are the links. A way that the links could be stored with your blog information and not on someone else’s server. Healthy competition for Mister Linky is needed.
There are a few things I need to know from you before I dive into developing this thing. So please leave me a comment below and answer these questions:
- What blogging platform do you use (WordPress.org? WordPress.com? TypePad? Movable Type? Other?)?
- If a good competitive widget was developed only on WordPress.org (self-hosted), would you be willing to switch to WordPress.org if you use something else?
Thanks for your feedback and please retweet this!
