You may have noticed that I’ve been making some changes around here lately. I’ve been excited by some of the nifty plugins available for WordPress sites, and I’ve also enjoyed poking around in my php files. (I *am* a geek at heart.)
Three of the more visible changes are as follows:
- More advertising. I feel like Anya some days, but it’s nice to make a bit of change from this site. It motivates me to keep content fresh and also makes the time I devote to it more rewarding, which means I’m likely to keep doing it longer. Everyone wins! (If you’re interested in purchasing ad space, please email me. I will be open for additional sponsors in the new year.)
- Link popups. The one piece of feedback I got on the pictures of other websites that appear when you roll over some links said he hated them, but I thought it would be useful to readers (so they get some idea where the link goes and if they’ve already seen it) as well as add some more visual interest to what’s a text-heavy site.
- And something I thought would be fun, a listing of the most popular posts in the left sidebar. On the homepage, that’s for the whole site; on the category pages, it lists the most popular posts in that category. (As calculated by a formula that includes and weights direct links, views, comments, and trackbacks.)
I always welcome reader feedback, but I thought it might be good to remind folks of that.
