Lard Central

Post by Derek H » Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:45 am

As part of my work I've been learning how to use the Netvibes "personalized dashboard publishing platform".

Rather than doing anything useful for my work I've put together "Lard Central" a resource for all players of Lardy games. It's at http://www.netvibes.com/lardcentral

There's links to all things Lardy as well as live feeds from Blogs, YouTube, Twitter and blog searches and the Lard Island Forum. It's a veritable one stop shop for fans of Lard.

Please take a look and tell me what you think. I'd be particularly interested in finding more blogs that regularly run Lard related content to feature on the page at http://www.netvibes.com/lardcentral#Lardy_Blogs

Hi Derek,
Thanks for doing this, it looks to be potentially very useful. It's reminded me that I need to check out Benito's blog again soon. I've bookmarked it for future reference.

If others agree on its utility perhaps Rich could make the link a sticky or include a link on the TFL blog so newcomers can find this information quickly.

Just visit the page at http://www.netvibes.com/lardcentral#Lardy_Blogs every now and again and you'll see the latest updates from all the blogs featured.

RSS feeds are wonderful things. I monitor somewhere near a hundred blogs and news services for work and I can view them all in the one place.

Talk about missing the point of the thing, see Schogun at http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=340476 :D

In case anyone here is thinking along the same lines, the whole point of Lard Central is that it's a portal that allows users to access new Lardy content from multiple sources by visiting a single place.

It's more of a "one stop shop" than "one more place" to visit - though it's not possible to provide any content from the Yahoo Group, just a link. You'll still have to go there by yourself.

Added links to episodes of the Meeples and Miniatures podcast featuring Lardy games. http://www.netvibes.com/lardcentral#Lar ... cial_Media

Anyone know of any other podcasts that I could include?

This is witchcraft!

It's absolutely great. But I don't understand. What is this Derek? Some kind of strange powerful magic?
