Blog Maintenance — April 2021

I was doing a wee bit of blog maintenance when a few things screwed up. This being Easter, no interactive help is available (there’s some irony there, but I won’t get into it now).

If you happen to notice anything not working correctly — like, for instance, the top menu suddenly listing all my categories — please let me know in the comments.

Obligatory photo to attract attention.

Part of the change included separating the About<<link and FAQ<<link pages in the hope that more people might read them. That’s spurned by having reached 1,750+ subscribers to the blog (no, it’s not impressive if you know the details . . . details in the About and FAQ pages).

Mind you, some might have subscribed because of the Alphabet Challenge, and in that case, most of what I say about subscriptions and comments is not applicable to them (most don’t even vote, let alone leave comments). And, there are some lurkers (people who read posts but don’t interact — something I do for some of the blogs I subscribe to).

I was also trying to make the menus more useful, although I don’t know of anyone who actually uses them (besides me).

I imagine my efforts are a waste of time if most people use their phones to view the blog.

One of them there vertical panorama composites . . . Yellowstone Canyon, that is.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

If you’re new to this blog, it might be a good idea to read the FAQ page. If you’re considering subscribing to this blog, it’s definitively a good idea to read both the About page and the FAQ page.
