Simple instructions on how to create a linkblog with del.icio.us via this post on CorporateBlogginBlog. From the post:
- Register for a del.icio.us account.
- Create a specific tag for the links you want in your "linkblog".
- Grab the RSS feed at the bottom of your del.icio.us page for that tag.
Seems pretty simple and you can’t beat the price.
The down side to that method is that every time somebody hits your web page, the link blog gets pulled across the Internet from del.icio.us. A better method is how I do it. I use wget to pull the html page to my server as needed, then use a simple include to post the link blog to my main weblog page. This way I'm not eating up bandwidth or having my page hang when del.icio.us is slow. If you have chrontab access on your serer, you can totally automate it by setting up a chrontab job to pull your links down to the local server periodically.
