Acquired in 2004 by Tucows, Blogrolling provided bloggers with an elegant way to list and manage their favorite site without having to dive into the HTML of your site.
Fast forward towards today and Blogrolling is on its death bed, and is preparing to announce when the site will no longer be no longer active online.
Although Blogrolling has already hinted that they would be shutting down their services, they (for the most part) did not give a specific time frame upon their blog of when the service would be shut down.
While Blogrolling is no longer needed in the new age of blogging that we live in, the company did help persuade blog platforms to develop a better way to list blog rolls (with Google creating the most innovative way to list them upon ones site).
Unless you are of the viewpoint that blog rolls are worthless, users currently utilizing the service would be wise to find a way to export their links elsewhere or (better yet) hard link the sites within their respective sidebars.
