Spent much of the day making changes to the site that will (hopefully!) make it easier to find stuff. This is my blog (an active experiment). It’s a mixture of personal journal, science-based resource, and support forum. I’m really stretching the definition of a blog (square peg in a round hole and all) but I’m enjoying every minute. Here are today’s changes:
- Renamed the “Welcome” page to “Help!”. I think Help! is more eye-catching and will draw people who get a little lost while wandering or want to utilize the site better. I’ve added some additional instructions there including a how-to on posting comments.
- Renamed the “References” page to “Links”. I think visitors in general are more used to link pages when they travel around the Internet. I am most interested in seeing if this will increase the visits to that page. Remember there are lots of good medical resources listed there.
- Renamed the “Index” page to “Archive”. I’m hoping this name change better reflects the purpose of the page. All my posts are categorized by subject. You can view the categories and thus locate older posts through this page.
- Added a “tag cloud” to the Archive page. This is what took a bit of time. Previously the categories were arranged in a straight up-and-down list. Now, they are in a cloud. (A happy, happy cloud.) Categories with more posts will appear larger. I think it’s an easier way to find my posts that interest you.
Okay. That’s all for now. Hope these changes help. I really want you to get as much as you can out of my fibroid blog. Thanks (as always) for your visits and support.
[Edited to add: That tag cloud on the Archive page looks a little screwy using Internet Explorer 6. Will have to look at it again tomorrow. I’m hoping it works with IE7. You could always be like me and use Firefox instead. 😉 ]
