Site Organizing

Messy-pile-of-boxes-on-top-of-a-person is closing on 4 years old!

When I started writing, I don’t think I had any real ideas about where it was going or how long I would be doing this.  But I quickly found I enjoyed it, and it filled a creative niche that was missing in my life.  So here I am, almost 160 posts (or 250k words) later, with no real end in sight.

As my blog has grown in content, it has become increasingly difficult to find any way to keep it organized; and I also find that my older posts tend to get lost.

A few years ago I tried adding a “Quick Links” section to the title bar at the top to try and address this.  And I suppose it may have helped, maybe.  But the Quick Links section has turned into a bit of a maintenance nightmare, where it seems to always be 3-4 months behind in content.


A while back I had a request from a new reader if there were any specific posts that she should read on the site to get a sense of what was all about, and that gave me the idea for adding another page with kind of an overview of what this is about.

I’ve been working on that on and off as time has permitted over the past few months, and I suspect it will change a bit over time.  But as of today, there is a now a Site Synopsis link in the menu at the top.

Any feedback is appreciated, so take a look (it’s essentially a new post) and let me know what you think.



Site Organization

As I add content to the site I’ve found it’s become increasingly difficult to find things. So to try making the site easier to navigate, I’ve added a Quick Links page to the header at the top of the site. That page has links to my different blog entries organized by the main topic. Hopefully it makes it a bit easier to find older entries.

Before I started this site I came up with a list of topics that seemed relevant for long term relationships, and those are (largely) the topics I write on. So if you see any headings in there with no entries under them, that’s why. Entries are on the way.

If you look at the list and have any ideas for topics that I haven’t listed, let me know. I’m always happy to have new things to think about and write on.
