Mind over Matter: Stuff I cared about at the time

It’s been a while

I’m not much of a blogger. Having the summer trip provided me with an endless supply of material to write about. But (my) ordinary life hardly seems worth writing about. Another roadblock for me was that I wanted to “preserve” the trip blog as a sort of whole. And in fits and starts, I have, I think, accomplished that. There is now a Trip Diary page which lists the posts related to our Big Trip in chronological order. The blog format is nice if you’re “following along” in that the most recent entries appear at the top. However, if I were to tell someone today that we had a great trip this past summer and that they can read about it on our website, the standard blog ordering (reverse chronological) is less than ideal. So with some help from the WordPress community, I was able to code up a page that presented the trip log entries in Forward chronological order, as a diary would be. Which I think you will agree is much more friendly for the newcomer.
