Whereas people coming at WordPress from other directions will be saying
"what?". Many people's links are just that - links to other sites, which are
not necessarily blogs. For confusion reduction, I would prefer "Links" (or
bookmarks even) for the general concept. "Blogroll" can be a category of
links, which would make sense for people who have different kinds of links.
