Approaching 100 consecutive days of blogging…

Tips for finding content within over 30 categories of topics

After 100 consecutive days of blogging, I realize that I have written some 70,000 words of content — more than the total number of words in our soon-to-be-published book. At that rate, I will be adding a quarter of a million words a year.

With that much information, I would like to share a few tips that may help you find what you need easily. With over 100 posts, I no longer scroll down the “Most recent 100 posts” in the right column to find what I am looking for. I now either type in a few words in the Search box or I use the drop-down list of Categories, which shows the number of posts falling in each category.

Let’s take the category of “Protein Concerns” for example. It says right in the drop-down list that there have been six posts in that category so far. By clicking on that Category, the links to those six posts comes up right away — along with the first paragraph of each. Here they are:

The system delivers the posts from different categories in groups of ten; then you can scroll to older or newer from there. I recommend that you take a look at the drop-down list from time to time and click on a particular category that might be interesting to you. As always, I welcome your input with suggestions of how I might be able to make this site more helpful for you.

As I strive to live up to my “big picture guy” reputation, I will be on the lookout to make sure that I provide balance in what I am reporting — dealing appropriately with all of the many categories involved, such as: Sustainability, Celebrities and Erectile Dysfunction, to name just a few.
