I made some enhancements to WDJK

September 13th, 2009

I was speaking with a brand manager the other day who told me that he liked my blog.  But, because of his busy travel schedule, he only gets to look at it once every few (or several) days.

Until today, I only had my 10 most recent blog postings viewable without having to search for them. Realizing that I sometimes go blog crazy (like I did on Friday with five posting), I could easily reach 10 blog postings in a few days.

So, I increased the number of viewable posts to 15 (both in the main body, and with the listings in the right-hand margin). This way, if you are traveling on business or go on vacation for a few days, you can come back here and easily get caught up on everything you missed. It also makes it easier for you to go back and check previous blog postings for comment updates.

Speaking of previous blog comment updates, I also added a “Recent Comments” listing on the right margin. (Scroll down  a ways until you find it.) This allows you to view the 15 most recent comments, who commented, and the blog posting they commented on. Again, I’m doing this so you can go back and get caught up on threads that interest you.

I hope these improvements helps. Let me know what you think. And let me know if there’s anything else I can do to make my site here more appealing to you.

    I think hands down the best thing you could change to make the blog better is to add threaded comments so we can have real, ongoing and easily readable conversations in the comment threads.

    John, what about offering updates by email and emphasising the RSS feeds – I had to have a wee hunt for them.

    Also, what about a weekly roundup post consisting of all your headlines from that week – and they then link back to the articles.

    Keep up the good work!
