If you read these posts in a reader and never see the sidebar, I hope you’ll click through and take a look today. I’ve added two features.
The first is a skyscraper ad for the BlogHer DonorsChoose Blogging Challenge in support of public schools. It’s part way down the sidebar under the images of my books. You can click the ad to donate to numerous projects selected by BlogHer Contributing Editors that are part of the donorschoose.org program. My supported project is “Computer Needed for New Student-Run Newspaper!” I hope you’ll give a dollar or more to help some hard-working journalism students who need a laptop. I’m working on a post for Oct. 4 that will explain more about this project.
The second sidebar change is that I’m trying the Lijit search again. I’ve finally made peace with the terms of service, but so far I’m not impressed with the search results. I listed everything I wanted searched in my “content.” When I test it, things I know are there don’t get found. So, that may or may not remain after a period of trial.
