NBS Housekeeping Notes

November 22, 2006 05:13 PM

You may notice we've updated the blogroll.  We've cut those we never read anymore, or the ones that are not updated frequently enough.  And, we've added some new folks.  We highly recommend all the blogs on the list, even the lefty ones. 

A few readers have asked about the black dots that appear alongside the blogroll list.  They indicate that someone on the blogroll has posted a new entry recently.  Obviously it doesn't work with the major media outlets that are listed.  But it is a helpful tool for the blogs.

Others have asked about the NBS sidebar.  Yes, we pretty much never use the "Categories" and we probably should.  At some point, we'll go back through and categorize everything.  That's on the list of fun things to do, right with running spell check all the entries, since we just recently figured out how to do that.  As for the "Subscribe" section... somehow that allows you to subscribe to NBS.  We really have no idea how that works.

And lastly, some folks have noticed that we're now switching back and forth with our pronouns.  Sometimes it's the NBS royal "we" who is speaking in third person, and sometimes it is just "I."  We're just experimenting, to see what it's like if we ever drop the whole anonymity facade.  If you find the inconsistency too distracting, drop us an email.

And, as always, thanks so much for reading NBS.


Subscribe would be nice- an email notice when the blog is updated saves a lot of time checking for new posts...
