a better archive

Sunday,  02/05/06  01:39 PM

This afternoon I decided to fix my archive.  At first I merely changed it a little to make it work better now that I've been blogging for three years.  But as I was working on it, I realized the calendar metaphor is really lousy for blog posts.  When I started blogging I'd created a calendar-like archive, because, well, that's what leading bloggers like Dave Winer did.  I never really questioned it... but in the back of my mind, I remembered a comment from Jeff Jarvis (who I met at BloggerCon II), saying that when he found a blog he liked, he wanted to see "everything", not just the new stuff.  And that got me to thinking...

So, presenting the new and improved archive!  There they are, links to all 900+ articles, posts, surveys, etc. I've made to this blog in reverse chronological order.  I actually think this makes much more sense as a way to present a blog's archive.  At least this way if you're browsing around, you have some chance of finding something interesting, as opposed to merely picking by date from a calendar.  Check it out!  (And of course, please tell me what you think...)
