New Format Highlights all Blog Entries

Blogger (brought to you by Google) has updated its layout formatting. I resisted doing the update since it required reentering the links and any other third party HTML that had to be added. That part turned out to be very simple. The new interface makes it so.

What is more interesting but much more work is the new feature that allows you to label each blog entry. You make up your own categories (squid, butter, Cheney) and go to your ‘dashboard” and start labeling. It takes forever. I have 615 blog entries, beginning January, 2005. I have labeled about a third of them.

So go ahead and look at the right side of this entry and see the heading “Subject Categories”— Now pick one or two! If you are feeling introspective today, click on “Internal Memo” and “Advice”.

If you are up in arms over the state of the union, click on, “Social Studies” and “War and Peace”.

It’s a great way to catch up on the blogs you’ve missed---but only in the areas that interest you today.

Your blog looks handsome in the new format... And I do appreciate the new margin on the left side of the screen...

Labels are handy, eh?
