What I’m doing now

I am tidying the post tags, which had become a bit chaotic. I am making sure each POST on the blog — but not the WEB PAGES on the site — has a set of appropriate tags. I have so far reached back to the end of November 2007.

When that is finished, I will start checking and updating links on key pages and posts; it is impossible to go back over everything, so apologies in advance for any links I miss. Well, not impossible… But I won’t be doing this the every post or page.

How you can help

  1. Report through comment, or the Contact Page, any dead links you find.
  2. Make suggestions, using the same methods as in #1.
  3. Take my poll.


* “You have 184 posts, 28 pages, contained within 51 categories and 98 tags. You have 195 total comments.” Yes, I have been tidying…
