This site is a blog, and written using the blogging engine Blogger. Therefore the vast majority of links on this site are posts, and Blogger shows them in chronological order – I don’t really have any say on that. I actively ascribe posts a certain category, and one of Blogger’s features allows users to view posts in just that category, which might help you narrow the field down, if you’re looking for something in particular. That functionality is in the bottom-right segment of each page.
There are also a few static pages, a small number. At the last count, there were almost 400 posts, and only 10 static pages. The main technical difference between posts and static pages is that the static pages don’t invite you to leave comments. I want the site to be interactive – I value your opinion every bit as much as my own, so I use them in a very limited way. Mainly to talk about my past. As far as I’m concerned, that’s just history, and doesn’t need a commentary. If you feel differently, please contact me.
On almost every page of the site is a “main” menu. This leads to pages/posts on just a few key subjects:
- About me. These are mainly pages which allow you to learn more about my background. Every post, after all, is written from my perspective.
- About stroke. The blog, after all, exists because I have suffered a stroke, and lived to tell the tale.
- About politics. Following current affairs was a hobby of mine, even in childhood. I write posts on this subject for a few reasons. First and foremost, it allows me to put them down in writing. They become more coherent, that way. There is also an element of showing people, who possibly might not realise any different, that I can still have thoughts at this sort of complexity, that even though I once suffered a brain injury, my thought process is perfectly coherent, even if my view is something you might not agree with.
