First the Dump – I deleted the DUH Gallery plugin. It just took toooooooo long to load. I really like the photo gallery plugin I’m using for Field Guide Photos, and will one day use it to put my own gallery photos in as an alternative viewing option.
The Addition – I added the category Field Trip.
Categories are extremely important to a blog. They are useful for finding certain types of related postings in a hurry. Our current categories are Bird Photo, Field Guide Photo, Field Trip, Gallery, General, Links, News, Weigelt Photos.
The categories are listed in the sidebar. Click on one to access it. Here is a reminder of what is included in these categories.
Bird Photo – a photo from any user other than myself
Field Guide Photo – photos from guest photographers that can help you identify birds you sight
Field Trip – this new category includes accountings/photos of my bird hikes – organized by the location and date of the hike
Gallery – my photos posted from number 1 to present – Each number represents a species and may contain one photo, a series of photos, and even scenery, flowers, non-bird animals/insects. As of today I have 465 sets posted out of 577 (and many more photos yet to be processed). I am trying to post 5 sets a day until I catch up – since I started the blog this last Feb 4 but have been taking bird pictures since 2006. Recent photos are being posted as quickly as I can – I will add their set number later.
General – observations, show and tell, poems, tips, stories, birding site info – all related to birds (sort of)
Links – Know a good bird site not listed in my Birding Links or Blogroll? Post it in this category.
News – to keep AKA Bird Nerd visitors and regular users informed of changes and features of the blog
Weigelt Photos – photos posted by my daughter and son-in-law
IMPORTANT – You can navigate the blog in many ways. Searching is one of the best, but don’t overlook the calendar. You can click on any yellow calendar date to see what was posted on that date – all the way back to Feb 4 when the blog was created.
