reviving charm blog archives

From the Archives of Reviving Charm

With 2018 now behind us I thought there would be no better time to introduce you to a new feature here on the website. New year, new feature. The top menu bar and sidebar now have links to an “archives” section so you can easily find your favorite posts or discover some new ones that you may have missed along the way. The archive currently features all posts over the last year but will eventually include all posts going back to 2015 – the year I started the site. What prompted the change? I visit a lot of websites  and blogs and realized that when I find one I like I generally want to dig deep and read many of the older posts. Lots of websites don’t make this very easy to do and, at best, they may include a way for you to filter all posts by a particular year. This is a good start but I still find myself still having to scroll through an endless number of posts and wading through those I want (or don’t want) to read. As a result of trying to figure out the best way to approach my archive, I decided on a format that reads more like a “table of contents”, as you can see below.

For me, the exercise of putting together an archive was particularly enlightening; it revealed how much or how little (sorry!) I posted in a particular month. It was also interesting to see how the look and feel of the website has evolved. I hope you find the archives useful, easy to navigate, and a great resource to share with friends (I love new readers!).  Be sure to checkout the 2018 archives HERE. Happy reading!

    Congratulations! I know how exciting and how daunting blog changes and improvements can be. But I agree, it’s very nice when it’s easy to find back posts on our favorite blogs. I was trying, with difficulty, to do that on a favorite blog just last night, as this particular blog didn’t even have a search capability. Good work my friend. Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

    This is a great idea. As more and more of my favorite sites cut back or quit, I love going through their archives and rereading posts. Sometimes, with new (to me) sites, I simply want to see what they’ve posted in the past.
    Happy New Year
