Now Indexes 1,000 Blogs

We added the 1,000th blog to the aggregator today. Wow, the blogosphere, and the personal finance niche in particular, has certainly expanded in the past two years. There are some new features that I’ve been working on, and some already exist that you may not know about. For example, you can use the RSS tools built into WordPress to publish a list of the top popular articles on your blog. This is already implemented on FiveCentNickel (on the center bottom of every page) and Consumerism Commentary (on the bottom of the right column of every page).

You don’t have to be a Friend of in order to take add this feature to your blog. For example, to pull the most popular personal finance articles into your blog, use the URL with your RSS tools. The links on these feeds are redirected through so we can count any visitors towards an article’s popularity ranking.

    Staggering. . .

    What plugins are being used to insert the feed into the page’s content? I use WordPress and there are several listed on the site, but I’d love to know what these sites are using.

  6. The sites above are using WordPress’s internal RSS functions. Info here:

    I don’t think it’s a good idea to carry blogs that do not display properly on normally-configured browsers.

    I am a huge fan of and check in regularly. It is, bar none, my favorite site for PF blogs.

    Got a question for ya: I recently switched my blog to its own domain (from to and haven’t been able to get the change request through.

    Here’s the new RSS feed:

    I don’t know where else to send this comment, but the past few times I’ve visited, only the “Friends of Pfblogs” posts are making it on the front page. Perhaps from the “new feature” that offers pinging? Or maybe something else, i’m really not sure, i just know what I am seeing.

    I like to come to this site to click on articles by new bloggers. Most established blogs have paid subscriptions, and i already have subscribed (or decided I do not want to subscribe). I understand the desire to have a profit (or maintain the site), but I don’t like unpaid members being pushed off the main page.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this!

  11. There was a bug for the last day or so that was listing only Friends of… but your comment and a few emails brought this to my attention. The problem has been fixed and within the next few minutes you should see things return to normal.

    Thanks, I appreciate your comment!

    It’s amazing how many blogs there are now! I only wish that I had jumped on the blogging band wagon years ago! I’m addicted!

    I used the format from and it is mostly good, but. The feeds show a title, and then “” not the blogger’s site. I checked and consumer commentary has it looking just like I’d like to get it. Any ideas? I took the code straight from the wordpress link above.

  15. JoeTaxpayer says:

    For what it’s worth, if someone reads this, the above issue I had is now resolved, and it looks great. I contracted this out as the fix was beyond my ability.Joe
