Super minor pony request: the option to add a This Is My Jam updating widget to profiles?

I know you can already have the TIMJ button on your profile, but there are additional widget options for showing recent updates for things like Last.fm, Flickr, LibraryThing, and Twitter. Was wondering if it'd be possible to add that for TIMJ. Asking 'cause I use TIMJ all the time and love it, and I figure there's probably some way to do this since you can crosspost TIMJ updates to Facebook and Twitter. But I don't know the ins and outs exactly, and the site's fairly new and small.

Obviously this is not a pressing pony, but still. Thought it'd be cool and it doesn't hurt to ask.

Hmm...is this more of a Shetland pony or a miniature horse?

oh, hey, that's what I haven't updated in like a month.

I'm a fan of TIMJ too, and would ride this pony.

Does TIMJ have a pre-made widget? A year or two ago we decided to stop rolling our own widgets for services—it was too much hassle and too much data storage. So we only go with widgets that work from the services themselves.

If TIMJ has their own that fits within our space requirements, we can probably do it.

I would ride this disco pony.

Doesn't look like there's a widget, just from googling. They're still working on their API.

After scouring the TIMJ site for a bit I can't find any website widgets. If I just missed it or if they add them we can revisit.

Do they have boysenberry? I love boysenberry.

OK, thanks pb! They tend to be pretty responsive so I might email them and ask about it.

Mmmm boysenberry ponies are the best ponies.

So I was unaware of this service - but I think it might be my new favorite thing! Thanks!

This is the old thread where we shared our jams, previously. In case people want to go add people or whatever.

And there's always social exploring.

I would just like to say that every time I read "This is My Jam" I hear this.

I'd like to Nth this pony when they have something widgetwise.

Dunno if this is what is needed or what, but they just announced badges for websites.
posted by ifjuly at 7:43 AM on September 12, 2012

That might do it. Thanks for the heads up, I'll take a look.
posted by pb (staff) at 8:14 AM on September 12, 2012

ok, I just added TIMJ widgets to profiles. To turn it on you'll need to go to your site preferences and check the "show widget on profile" box next to your This Is My Jam username.

Cool, thanks pb!

Aw, you're the best, thanks! I'm gonna feed my pony oats and brush its mane every day.

Awesome, thanks!
