Page Links!

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

I am excited. I am super, super excited. Really.

There is a new feature on blogger that allows me to have constant links to certain pages on my blog. I have put these buttons under the title bar/banner. Wahoo!

I don’t know if this excites anyone else, but it does me. I think this will make the blog easier to navigate–especially for the new visitor. I know when I come across a new blog with lots of info, I feel overwhelmed.

I have several pages in mind to link at the top of the page. Let me know if you have an ideas and I will take them under advisement. I currently have:

  • Home
  • Blog Index
  • Using This Blog
  • About Me
  • Follow

I am planning on adding:

  • About Blog
  • About Babywise
  • Getting Started Guide

One thing to note is that I will be moving the Blog Index Link from the top right to under the banner. It is there now, but I wanted to give you a couple of days to get used to the idea before I delete the one on the right.

    I always go through the Blog Index to get to the Newborn Summary. That is the section that I most often refer my friends to as well…so maybe you could have a link just to the week by week summaries?? Just an idea!

    well neat! Too bad I just finished writing my own code for these on my own blog… would have been a lot easier to just do it this way 🙂 That's about my luck these days!

    I think Evelynn's Mom's suggestion is a good one. I also spent a lot of time scrolling down to the label "newborn summaries" or "baby summaries."

    I think a "Babywise Basics" link would be helpful–all those basic posts you've written: CIO bootcamp, 45 minute intruder, Eat/wake/sleep, optimal wake time, and starting late. I guess a lot of those would be under the getting started link too…maybe it's the same idea. As long as people can find those classic posts easily. This is a fun new addition!

    Thanks everyone for the ideas!okay, something I am planning on doing is grouping posts by age (after I get the blog index all finished up). So I would have a newborns section and a baby section and a toddler section…

    Oh Linds. That is too bad. I always hate finding out my time was essentially wasted. Hopefully you learned something from doing it that will make something easier on you in the future 🙂

    Summer, to see past summaries, see the blog label "newborn summary" and "baby summary". Each of those labels will list every one of those posts.
