For me, September signifies the start of a new academic term - and, potentially, new readers of this blog! So it's a month that seems appropriate for considering changes that might be made to make this blog a more effective resource. On that note...
1. Relevance vs. currency:
This year, I have experimented with grouping references together on either a (roughly) thematic or regional basis. (In the past, I essentially waited to accumulate five or so references and then I posted them under a "New Publications" heading.)
The advantage of proceeding in this fashion is that readers can more easily determine whether or not a post is relevant to them - and if it is, more of the references listed might be of interest. The disadvantage is that it takes longer to compile such "mini-bibliographies," so when some references are finally posted, they are not quite as current as they could be.
My question to you is, do you have a preference? Or an idea for a completely different approach?
2. Do you have any other suggestions for the blog? For example, "I would like more of x/less of y" or "Can you track x type of resource?"
3. Finally, I've managed to stockpile a number of pending posts, which I'm now dutifully trying to get out there, so please forgive the deluge of information!
