I don't know why I take such a delight in cleaning up my blog when I don't derive any satisfaction from any other kind of cleaning. But, every once in awhile, my blog just bugs me and I have to do something. Today was one of those days.

I just don't like blogs which are "too busy". I have no control of how other people set up their blogs but I prefer a spartan kind of arrangement. Too many columns, too many lists and, God forbid, music, and I just tune out (which is why I keep the sound off on my computer most of the time -- I only turn it on when I need it). Anyway, between all the blogs I follow and the different history sites which I love, there was just too much going on to suit me. I figure when your own blog bugs you, it's time to do something about it.

So, now, you can go to a separate post (look under "Go here for") which contains all of my lists. I don't know if old posts eventually disappear but, at the rate I'm going, it ought to be a long time before that happens -- and I have all my links tucked away somewhere else, anyway, just in case.

So, if there's something you are looking for that you can't find, just ask me. I might be able to find it.

  1. "Might be able to find it?" :D

    I commend you for having enough to clutter up a blog. All my clutter are those 30-odd posts I never have finalized.

    BTW, I'm a minimalist myself, so I appreciate the Spartan look. It doesn't mess with my little brain. LOL!

  2. Yeah, the older I get, the less chaos I want around me -- and that includes this blog. And, on other blogs, I just like to be able to find what I'm looking for nice and easy. To be fair, though, there are some blogs which have a lot on them but are easy to navigate.

    Bzirk, where is your blog?

  3. Oh, it's on blogspot, but I've only posted a few things. However, I've written a ton of other things -- just not posted them.I'm trying to find my voice. At some point I guess I need to just really jump in.

  4. You must have it set to private? I don't see it listed on your profile.
