How can I list my favorite blogs by the times of their last updates?
June 18, 2012 7:48 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to create a webpage that automatically lists all of my favorite blogs by the order in which they were last updated. What is the code that I should use?

Please see this page for an example of what I'm talking about.

I tried to look at the source code of that page, but as I'm such a novice at HTML, I couldn't really comprehend it.

If someone could tell me the right google keywords that I could use to find the code, or be kind enough to give me the code itself (or link to it), that would be totally awesome.

It's called a "blog list" and here's how to do it on Blogger.

Another alternative: I use Google Reader to do this. It doesn't create a prettily formatted page like your example, but it gathers all the blog posts from as many sites as you want and can display them in reverse-chronological order for you.

99% of weblogs have an RSS feed (even if the site doesn't obviously say so) and once you have a little practice, it's pretty trivial to add RSS feeds to Google Reader and it helps me keep up to date with my favorite sites.

You want to search for "river of news" type RSS readers.
