Ongoing Changes to My Blog

Visitors to my blog may have noticed that for about a week now, I have been providing some links to topical news items on the Front Page.

I hope to make these changes permanent, however, I am still trying to get a feel for what will work for me in the long run.

I am still unsure whether to provide the links as part of my main blog or to leave them where they are now. I am reluctant to provide them as part of the main blog because I update these links as often as I can and I don't really wish to ping blo.gs with every change I make.

The section for the topical news items was previously called "Quick Links" but I have now changed this to "Headlines"; this new name may be temporary until I find one that works on that section.

In addition to providing an RSS Feed for the topical news items, I have separated them from my main archive and I have chosen to archive them by month.

This of course, encourages laziness in my writings since some of these news items are worth a comment or two and there is the temptation to dump them under "Headlines" rather than commenting on them but I am aware of this and I am working on it.
