(S)trolling Through the Archives
The other day I was visiting a blog I admire and spent some time wandering around the “Archives” section. It occurred to me that many blogs have a lot of good stuff that is buried in the archives—unceremoniously consigned to the cyber-scrap heap, as it were. So, as way of addressing this “problem” (and because everyone who writes thinks that the stuff they produce is incredibly important and worth preserving in perpetuity), I have created a “Favourites” page that can be accessed here and, more consistently, from the bottom of the header above.
I’ve divided the page into two sections. The first contains the posts that have either generated the most traffic or the most conversation. The second contains the material I happen to like best or means the most to me personally. Some of the posts that are featured on this page will likely change from time to time (I would like to keep it at around 10-15 posts for each section), but hopefully at the very least it can serve as a space to highlight and remember some of the good conversations that have taken place over the years here.
I have often been surprised by which posts people are drawn to and which they are not, but I have always been (and continue to be) glad for the number and variety of people who drop by here from time to time and for the fascinating conversations that we can have. Often, the content in the comments section is more interesting and substantive than the post that happened to provoke it.
So, once again, thank you for visiting and thank you for contributing.
I, too, love blogwalking and trolling through the archives. Great idea to set up a FavPage.
Thank you kindly.
(I can’t take credit for the idea of a “Favourite” page. All good ideas are borrowed, to some degree; I borrowed this one from Chris.)
I shocked you did not included your article on defunct WHA and NHL Hockey Jerseys. It was the only one that I fully understood from start to finish!
Hmm…. I suppose that one slipped my attention :). I have corrected this egregious oversight!
