Re-Writing of Introduction to Pillar Posts

I hope in the New Year to make twice a month updates here about our ‘Pillar Post’ project. Consider this Report #1.

As you may have noticed, I collapsed the almost forty listings in the left Pillar Post sidebar down to eight. This has the downside of making the subjects within the larger files impossible to see on the home page, e.g., ‘Literary Alchemy’ is hidden inside KEYS FOR INTERPRETATION, and ‘Crimes of Grindelwald’ inside INDIVIDUAL ROWLING WORKS, but the list was so long it seemed unlikely to me that a reader would scroll through them all and sense anything but a grab bag rather than a coherently organized collection of posts. File this decision under ‘Lamentable but Necessary Trade-Offs.’

I also put together a new introduction to the project that now heads the list, the only subject not in ALL CAPS: The ‘Why’ and ‘How To’ of Pillar Posts. Let me know what you think of the new explanation by writing a comment beneath that post or this one — and please share the items and points of organization that will help you most. The whole idea is to make the HogwartsProfessor blogpost collection much easier to use — and only you can tell me what needs to be done to make sure that happens.

Thanks in advance for your feedback, and, as always, for your stopping by and joining in the conversation!
