Index-o-rama

One of the neat features in Movable Type is the ability to assign categories to your blog entries. (This is a cool feature, whether or not one is a librarian.) After some tinkering, I've created a template for my Category Archive, then added some extra coding so that each post will tell you which category(ies) it's been assigned to. There's also a listing of same over in the sidebar.

Now I need to finalize a comprehensive, logical list of categories, hopefully one that shouldn't be altered much, because I'll be darned if I have to keep reassigning posts over and over. But then one can always use the Search field, another great feature, to seek a particular post.

Thanks be to Paul for helping me with the coding within the post entries.

The rather unscientific way I created my categories was to go through my entire back catalog of entries and start assigning categories that seemed to fit.

(I probably should have an extra category -- only in new york -- but I just sorta lumped that stuff with the rest of misc.)

You really encourage me to move over to this MT thing and leave behind all the host worries...

What a cute! The blogging is large, but the t-shirt is any size.

As Scott posted, this saying derives from Natsuko's website. It was just kinda funny, so I just translated it into German (my grasp is elementary at best).

I see the connection now...there's a web site out there, which lets us understand the funny Japanese use of the English language: www.engrish.com
Blogging ist grossartig, indeed ...
