New Blog: Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts and Food

From Denny: The first six weeks of this new year were used to revamp the blog templates and corral all the blogs connectint them  to one new blog as an online newspaper called Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food. Yeah, it slowed down the number of posts I could publish but hey! at some point a girl just has to dust the house.

As an eclectic person I have far too many interests and it doesn't look like I'm anywhere near ready to quit on that front. :) On the flagship blog, The Social Poets, a couple of years ago I started branching out and noticed too many different genre posts a day overwhelmed people. So, I started various niches like a science blog called The Soul Calendar to place all the intriguing discoveries in the news, mostly astronomy, psychology, neuroscience. Then there were the crazy humor blogs that followed: Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious And Odd and Dennys Funny Quotes.

Now these crazy blogs are growing like weeds both in content and in the search engines as well as the blog directory ranks. Of course, Google in particular makes bloggers jump through hoops while trying to promote their content. Just in two years the internet atmosphere has changed drastically, especially in what has been brought on line technology wise for improving the blogs in appearance and speed.

Yes, I still love my widgets which are a real no-no in the website world because it can slow down loading time.  I figure at some point it can't just be all about The Blogger Mini Me. I find too many sites and blogs ignore their readers interests or reading comfort. So, I continue with allowing blog community widgets so we all can see those happy faces who visit - and help promote those same bloggers as my visitors may decide to visit their blogs.  The new templates have sped up the blogs in spite of the widgets so now it's a win-win situation.

To make things easier for you the reader to navigate all my many posts there are several options available to make it easy for you to pick and choose your interests.  There is a horizontal headline scroll at the top of each blog that lists what has recently linked at Dennys News .  Check out that blog and you will find vertical widgets on both sidebars for each blog, all twelve at the moment,  listing the most recent five posts.

On each blog is also a vertical widget on the sidebar - from Dennys News - listing the most recent post from each of the blogs. Got all that?  It's easier visually than it sounds. :)  Hopefully, this new strategy will prove to better organize and connect all the various blogs for you the reader!

And then I have to figure out what to do with this new official online newspaper - like what to post over there too.  Blogging is such fun, especially when Blogspot.com allows you to generate content to your heart's happiness all for free.

Yes, I admit it; I am an information junkie.  Maybe it's time you and I both start up an Information Junkies Anonymous.  No worries.  I will be the first to stand up and say, "Hi, I'm Denny and I'm an Information Junkie."  To which you respond, "Hi, Denny!"
