WP Social Blogroll (formerly known as Feed Reading Blogroll) provides a sidebar-widget and a template-tag that add an enhanced blogroll to your sidebar. It checks on all your linked sites, when the most recent update has occured (see example in my sidebar on the frontpage).
The plugin is inspired by Blogger’s Blog List.
The check is performed by reading the date of the most recent feed-item. The feeds must be valid RSS2 or ATOM-feeds, otherwise the plugin cannot read the date-information provided by the feed. The Plugin uses the Google AJAX Feed API to access the feeds.
Based on this information, the age of the most recent feed-item is calculated and then displayed under each bookmark in your sidebar.
Furthermore, an icon for each bookmark can be displayed.
