The page on this blog My Comments Elsewhere displays a list of links to bookmarks from my del.icio.us account I have tagged using the term “comments.” Recently Kathie Thomas, a member of the Linkedin Bloggers group on Yahoo! Groups that I co-moderate, asked how I generated this page. Here’s how.
The web address for this del.icio.us list of tagged bookmarks is here. Scroll down to the bottom of that del.icio.us page and you will see the symbol for the page’s RSS feed. I used the address of the RSS feed from del.icio.us to generate code for a Grazr widget that I pasted into the HTML view of the My Comments Elsewhere page.
When the “My Comments Elsewhere” page is loaded on a web browser, Grazr pulls in and displays the updated del.icio.us feed that contains the del.icio.us bookmarks I have tagged with the term “comments.”
Convoluted? Yes, but it works. And I can include from my del.icio.us feed anything I have tagged with the term “comments,” regardless of source.
