Elsa’s Top 10 Sources Returns!

Elsa’s Top 10 Sources is back, and I’ve reinstated her colorful widget above my blogroll. If you’re looking for Elsa’s individual blog, that’s in the blogroll. I’m also running an RSS of Elsa Elsa Astro News at the bottom of the right column. Just click on any of the headlines and you’ll automatically be taken to the story.

Given that Top 10 Sources has been so unstable, Elsa says in her comments below that she’s putting most of her eggs in the new Astro News basket. However, I’m having trouble getting her new widget to work. I’ve tried to compromise by putting one foot in each of Elsa’s worlds — the old (Top 10 Sources widget) and the new (Astro News RSS). Welcome back, Elsa!

  1. Monica, thanks but I would really prefer you link the new Astro news here: http://www.elsaelsa.com/astronews/
    It also has a widget the is customizable… down to the color so you can make it match your own blog.

    The thing is, I am not going to be adding content to the Top 10 site, instead investing in the new site where I can be sure it will not be disappearing. While I will maintain the top 10 site – my energy will be going in the other direction so the updates will be much more frequent at the astro-news making the site more compelling.

    The top 10 (provided it stays online) will continue to drive traffic as I have worked there for 2 years and the content there is very deep but after this experience (and due the fact I was plainly told that one day if I should wake up and find the site gone, I should not be surprised – Well I am just not going to be throwing all that much coin that direction. 🙂

  2. Elsa — Will do. I’m glad you’re investing in your own thing. Give me a little while to get the other widget up and running. I’ve followed the traffic about folks having to resize, but I’m not much of a techie. From eye-balling, it looks like your new widget will fit in my right-hand column. All the best and thanks for your support! — Monica

  3. Thanks Monica… if you click customize on top left, it has numbers and you can just make it skinnier. No rush. We are not fully functioning yet but will be very soon. I am really going to put everything I have got into this… the whole experience has just been beyond the pale, I don’t think people realize. ::sigh::

    This has always been a problem for some and it may be that you host your pics

  4. Elsa — I’ve tried putting up your new widget at least a dozen times in various formats: HTML, Java, and customized for WordPress. I’ve changed the column size. But each time, all that shows up is “Get this widget.” Here’s the best I can do right now: I’m running Elsa Elsa Astro News as an RSS in the right-hand column. Hope this is of some help. Best, Monica
