Blog Tweaking Coming

I don't know when I'll get around to it, what with Blogger about to implement some changes in the blog adminstration platform (to the annoyance of me and many others -- if it ain't broke . . . don't fix it!), but I've found a way to include the "older posts" link that should be at the bottom of the page. The problem is that (1) I'm afraid of losing stuff if I do the change and (2) some of the elements (like the list of links) will need to be redone manually.

But I do want to get the "older posts" link in here, especially because when you click on a tag now, you only end up getting a few of the posts, rather than being able to access them all. You can still find everything by googling, but that is a pain to do.

So, at some point, changes will be made and you may notice some things disappearing for a while (and hopefully not the entire blog).

Your posts are always available elsewhere, if you should happen to lose them. Keep a list of your links (just the names of the sites) then re-enter a few at a time.

No charge.

Every now and then I will save pages on the harddrive, just in case. But having to restore things would be a pain. I have 756 posts here (not a lot really for five years), and 226 at Cinema Catechism.

Why is it that your Cinema Catechism blog has the 'older posts' link? What's the difference?

Cinema Catechism is on a different (and presumably newer) Blogger template.

I would have moved to that platform, but it is rather plain and I like the cupola at the top of this one.

I finally discovered that they have updated this platform/template, so I'll move it to that version.
