If you use the Blogger platform, pages are static ~ which means that the template will be the same on all additional pages and only the actual post will be different on each page. As a result, gadgets selected for your home page template will appear on every additional page. Since that is the case, I made the following tweaks:
- People, Places & Things Page added ~ allows me to write in greater detail about each of my family trees and corresponding surnames, as well as mention the various technology and genealogy programs I use.
- Favorite Websites Page added ~ this is an idea that Thomas MacEntee introduced and the Favorites Websites Page is my version of a Research Toolbox (my go to websites for general research and my Norwegian and Swedish research).
- Posts By Topic & Posts By Date Pages added ~ a great idea I found (linked to) and discussed in my April 26 post at The Keough Corner. I much prefer the posts listed by topic or date on separate pages rather than a lengthy list in a side gadget.
- Labels, Blog Archives, My Favorite Things, and Where It's At gadgets removed ~ with my new pages, these gadgets were now redundant.
- Print Friendly Link added - this is a great idea that DearMyrtle mentioned (also linked to in the April 26 post) and it makes it easy to print a post with a simple click.
