An Update

Some of you will have already noticed that the sidebar on this blog has had a bit of an overhaul. This has been on the to-do list for awhile, because I noticed that many people come here searching for information about a certain project or plan — but, depending on the query, the search tool was sometimes worse than useless in connecting readers to old posts that have been pushed off the main page. The site statistics indicate that some people gave up altogether before finding the right post. So that has been replaced with a collection of pages, some old and some new, that cover the broad themes and topics that we turn to again and again in different ways. The pages are intended to be complementary to the posts — they will hopefully prove useful as a navigation tool to find older posts, but they will also have newer and separate content.

Another reason why I wanted to go this route with a handful of pages is so that I can keep these pages up-to-date as information changes, which would be very cumbersome to do for old posts. The TOD page at the top, in particular, will eventually feature more content not included in the posts. Other pages will develop over time, as more posts appear on the blog that fills out one of these categories. The pages will be kept updated as projects change; small updates will be made without notice, but I will announce larger updates, either on the sidebar itself or somewhere in a post.

The sidebar newsfeed that started up again a few weeks ago will continue, with about a half dozen daily links that may be of interest to readers. Some people requested awhile back that the newsfeed have its own RSS feed, and that’s now in place. The blogroll has been revised, expanded, and included in a separate links page. Posts are also archived into smaller, more finely-divided categories that are listed on a separate page. Anyway — have a look around, and feel free to offer suggestions in the comments.

  2. Thanks, Evan, good call. I meant to include links last night, but finished late and forgot all about it. Links are now added to the images.
