Some Tips Concerning The New Front Cover Format

The front cover has changed to organize posts in such a way as to make it easier for readers to locate and follow blogs that match their interests.

The way this will work requires some effort on your part. If you want your blogs to be easily found, you must use the drop down list of tags.

This list can be found at the bottom of each new blog, beneath the "entry" box where you add your blog text and above the date & privacy settings.  I have even placed a red arrow to help call your attention to it.  You can use more than one tag, but please use only the tags that apply to the content of your blog post.

In the past, some members have selected all of the tags in an effort to have their post listed under multiple topics and to get noticed. Moving forward, doing this will get you noticed in a negative way, as I will remove any tags not appropriate to the post.

The left & right columns for new posts & new comments will remain unchanged.

Lets give this new method a try and see how it goes. If you are so inclined, you can still go back to earlier posts & add tags in order to have it properly categorized.

Have fun & keep me posted what you like/dislike about it.

"I  offer the following suggestion as part of finding a "solution":

Categorize the front page under topical headings magazine style:

ART/ENTERTAINMENT 

POLITICS/THE ECONOMY 

PERSONAL POTPOURRI 

HUMOR/SATIRE

POETRY/FICTION

MISCELLANEOUS 

Each contributor is required to self edit and characterize and categorize her/his post as a condition precedent to publication...

In this way,  if you're not into a certain category you can skip it altogether..

Just a thought..."

Congratulations....

You made the suggestion come to life and look a great deal better than I would have imagined...

I sincerely hope that this works for all of us...

What category would this post fall under? There are sometimes posts about the site, technical and otherwise.
