Explore the Archives: November 2009 on Life Blessons

As this blog approaches two years worth of posts, pictures and pensive thoughts, I have finally started the tedious process of pulling together an archive page. I've wanted one for awhile, but one that lists out the posts by title rather than simply by date.

I've spent plenty of time to see if there were any widgets or HTML hacks that would make this a breeze with Blogger, with no luck.

So finally I decided to do the old-fashioned way, by hand: cutting and pasting, link by link. It's not the easiest of processes but I think it will make the Archives much more user-friendly and browseable than any of the stock ones. You can see all of the posts that I've currently archived here.

I am slowly making my way from the first posts on this site to the current month, and will continue to add to this page over time.

So  as I work through this page, I wanted to share some of these old posts, harking back to the earliest days of Life Blessons, during November 2009. For those of you have been around since the very beginning, I hope you'll enjoy poking through some of these posts for the second time. For those of you who have joined us sometime since, I hope you enjoy reading some of these oldies but goodies:

  1. Wow! That's awesome, Carmen! Kudos for taking the time to do that. Your archives are going to look so great by the time you're done! :) Looking forward to perusing your old posts!

  2. Awesome, thanks for the encouragement, Kristin. I decided it was finally time to bite the bullet, even if it does take a while longer than it would otherwise. It just seems so much more useful to be able to see the actual post than just a date.
