Okay ladies, this one is for the observant readers. Seen anything different here on the site? No? Don’t blame you. This change is rather obscure and yet potentially powerful.
I have been working behind the scenes on this:
Project galleries for my and your viewing pleasure. I had those old category pages that I made with one of those Linky party tools. But they where highly dependent on me updating them. Aaahhh, I think the last time I did that was around Christmas.
I decided I needed something better. Something that would run itself once created. And I hope they will.
So far I have started on two categories (you can find them in my navigation menu just underneath the header):
You will find various galleries underneath. I used a plugin to keep those galleries updated. It means that every new post that I add to a certain category will automatically show up in the gallery. Neat he. I used a plugin for that called “Category Thumbnail List”.
When you start to browse the galleries (and I hope you will) you might notice that they stop somewhere around the end of 2010. That’s because I needed to recategorize all my posts and that is how far I have come. And not all the categories are in there yet.
I’ll work my way back until the beginning (or at least until the start of the interesting posts), so the galleries will become larger at the front (with new posts) and at the back (with old posts) automatically. And some new ones will pop up once I have the posts that go in there correctly tagged.
So what do you think? Handy dandy feature on my site? What other galleries shall I create? I am thinking furniture makeovers, blog design tips, recipes.
Let me know what you want to find easily here on the site. I aim to please!! And have fun browsing.
