I’m changing the menu bar. Finished Models is becoming the less clunky Finito. And I’m adding a new drop down, called Features. Often with a blog you “lose” your good posts, so bloggers start to recycle them, especially after a while, and they get lazy, or have new viewers who may not bother going through the old post archives. Sometimes bloggers do this in a kind of underhanded way, using widgets or gizmos or shady operators (the same ones who do the phony link back SEO thingie) who teach you how to fudge post dates to reuse content without seeming to do so. I’m not doing that. I’m going to publish longer, more thoughtful pieces in the Features section, as standalone, persistent (in the sense of it having a longer life than a post) pages. That way they stay there and are easy to find and the problem of “lost” posts is solved. I’ll archive old features as we go along. I won’t use posts as Features, with one exception, the one about my first needlepoint canvas, which I would like to reuse. It should have been a Feature, but I had not thought about including a Features section when I wrote it. What a brilliant idea. The next feature will be about the Cave Dreaming one, and then after that the review of Turow’s Daily You. Basically the blog is going to get a little edgier. Who knows? Maybe next week this will turn into a notoriously subversive Needlepoint/Underground Art/Indie Movies/Techno Chic fringe ezine. Wait. Let’s get back to reality. I’m just changing the menu bar.
