Introducing the Categorized Archive

After one full year of blogging, York Staters has put up over 200 posts. And when each post is pushed off the front page by newer posts, where does it go? Why, to the archives of course, which had heretofore been only grouped by the date posts were published.

But no longer! In honor of our one year anniversary, we thought it would be great to find a way to catagorize posts so that readers could go back and find other posts about a particular region or topic. Using the magic of del.icio.us, there is now a York Staters Categorized Archive! Surf around using the tags on the side bar to find past posts of interest to you.

There are a few tags that are a bit nebulous, such as 'history', since almost every post has something to do with history. It goes without saying that all of the posts are about Upstate New York. And I'm sure there are some inconsistencies to work out, so if anyone has suggestions of how to improve the Categorized Archive, please let me know.

On a personal note, it's interesting to go back through the posts of the last year and see what sort of patterns and themes emerge, and see how this crazy idea has blossomed. Many sincere thanks to our readers and contributors, and if you're just joining us, check out the archive and catch up!

Amazing stuff Natalie, I really enjoyed digging through the old archives. I hope people will take advantage of them. PS-you'll have to show me how to categorize my own posts.
