Now even better archives. Oh yeah.

Exciting news! Okay, not really. But it does make me happy.

I have never been satisfied with the way I was archiving my old reviews. I really liked Rosario's method, so I've copied her a bit. I played around with GoogleDocs and realized that I could keep a spreadsheet there, publish it, and then link to it from the sidebar. So voila, the new and improved archives!

You can see the author, title, category, and rating. It was kind of a big job to put together, but it'll be much easier going forward. And I realized that I have over 150 reviews in my archives! Reviews of admittedly varying degrees of quality, but still. Little bloggy, I'm so proud of you. ;)

Hey, that looks great! And it's probably so much easier to do than fiddling about with html editors!

Wow! I always enjoy reading your reviews, and I just had to delurk to say thanks so much for sharing your archive spreadsheet - this is wonderful!

Rosario--Thanks! And yes, I stay away from HTML as much as possible. ;)

Nath--Yeah, it took a couple hours and was pretty tedious. But it wasn't too bad.

Hi Vaedri! Glad you delurked. :) And thanks!!

Holy Cow! I also love the way Rosario's reviews are set up and yours look fab! Whenever I see a new to me author or one I'm not sure I've read I check through bloggers archives to see if they have read them. I started to archive my reviews and it got embarrassing ;)

Cindy--You should archive your reviews! Though it is a lot of work. But yours are so funny. :)

DC--Thanks!
