New cool feature in Blogger (Blogspot) for blogrolling

I just noticed this new cool feature in Google's Blogger (a.k.a. Blogspot) today, which is called the Blog List. Now you can see this new thing in the side bar of my blog too, under the Blogrolls section.

Apparently it is an enhanced version of the existing Link List feature, able to show more details about the linked item, including the title of most recent article, date of last update, snippet of the most recent article, blog icon, etc. You can sort the listing alphabetically or based on most recently updated status.

The Blog List works well for any page that has an RSS or Atom feed, so we can get creative to link to blogs, news sites, podcasts, Twitter streams, search results, or anything else with a feed. It is also able to import subscriptions from Google Reader.

Pretty cool isn't it?
