Lookie! I've got archives now.

As you can see below, I've started an archive of my reviews. I was inspired by all you organized people out there who have archives. I wish now that I had started this thing on something like Wordpress or Typepad that lets you have tags, because those look really nice and easy. But I'm too lazy to move. Plus I don't want to pay for anything.

It's also for my own reference--I am forever forgetting what I've read, especially if it didn't really make much of an impression. Now I can see it all listed out, which is very satisfying. :) So I'm going to try to keep it updated. Unless it turns out to be too much work. Bloggeroo is for fun only. If I get sick of adding my posts to the archives, I'm chucking it.

You're really getting organized here, aren't you? Well, that's good. It's all looks great and it definitely makes it easier to find things. I'd thought about putting my reviews in alphabetical order as well but since I don't have very many reviews right now, I figured it wasn't needed yet. ;-)

Yay organization!!! I've been hoping you would either do that or add a search box! I'm a huge dork and it annoys me when my blog isn't organized. I also keep a paper list of all the books I read each year and what date I finished and started the book on. I also have several other lists various places about the books I've read. Why yes, a touch of OCD does run in my family! How'd you know?

Yikes!! I don't even know where I would begin to do something like that.

Although.

Did you just post a list with all the links and then create a link to that page? Because dude, I could do that! Maybe.

I have a wordpress blog and by blog I mean I registered and then couldn't figure out where to start. Where's the dash board? Where are all the 'stupid' buttons? I need those features!

Dancechica--Yes, I'm on an organization kick. It's a rainy weekend, what else do I have to do? [Hey, I have a life! Really. LOL]

Samantha--LOL. I go through these phases of being really organized, and then I'll get lazy. You're definitely one of the ones that inspired me here--I've liked looking back over your archives. :)

Cindy--Did you just post a list with all the links and then create a link to that page? Yes, that's exactly what I did. It wasn't too hard, especially since I haven't been blogging all that long. Do it! Join the OCD club. ;p

Great job! It's easier to navigate this way. Awesome. :-)

nath said...

that's good!!! I'm envious now... lucky me, I've been blogging for about two months... I have time before I need archives!! but it's really cool! and luv the pic of your books!

Jennie said...

Hee hee! I had fun doing the picture for the archives. I picked out a bunch of my favorites and lined them up and then I arranged them by color how I wanted. Yes, I like to play with my books. LOL. :p

jane said...

Wow. Looks like that was tedious. Good for you, though, for making it easy for us visitors. I need to do something like that someday.

julieree said...

jennie--you could prove that you are not, in fact, OCD if you would let me re-organize all your bookshelves by color. Wouldn't that look nice?

Mailyn said...

Yes, I like to play with my books.

How wrong is it that I do the same thing with my DVD's? I feel like such a perv saying that I like to play with my DVD's. LMAO.

Jennie said...

Jane-It was a little tedious! Looking up all those links was time-consuming. But you guys have archives by rating, which is really nice.

Julie--You touch my books I'm gonna kick your ass. They are arranged by author and that's the way they're going to stay.

Mailyn--It does sound a little pervy. lol

Dylan said...

I'm the same way Samantha! I love organization so much that I did this for our book blog...it's a pain but SO worth it, IMO.

Great job!
