Tips on using this weblog

By November 5, 2005Uncategorized

For those of you that read this weblog somewhat regularly I’d like to point out a couple of things that may help you use it better.   

Lately, most of my posts have been about life in New Orleans post-Katrina.  I have categorized these posts by tagging them as related to Katrina.  So you’ll note that at the bottom of this post
there is short line with a time stamp, followed by four hyperlink words: "Web/Tech Permalink Comments and Trackback."  The word ‘ThisBlog’ indicates that this post is assigned to that category.  If you click on that word you’ll pull up all the posts I’ve ever created that relate to
that category, even posts that have become archived and no longer appear on the main page.

Likewise, if you want to find all of my posts related to Katrina then just click on the ‘Katrina’ word after one of my posts on that topic and you’ll see them all grouped together on one page.  If you
want to find a particular post that I wrote about in the past and you don’t know what category it is in then I’d recommend doing a Google search with the words "Ernie Attorney" together with some of the words that you think are in the title or body of the post.  There is a better way to do the Google search using advanced search features, but many people just want a quick and dirty way of searching things on the internet and I can vouch for this as an effective method; I use it on my site all the time when I’m looking for an old post.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.

    I’m also posting some Katrina related stuff, albeit from my living in Houston perspective with occassional trips into town. You seem VERY busy, but if you ever want a romp down recent lawgrad lane, feel free to stop by (just click on my name, the blog is hyperlinked).
