I’m following Darren Rowse’s “31 days to Build a Better Blog.” One of his projects is to build a sneeze page. (This being allergy season, it seemed to be a good thing to do.) According to Darren, a sneeze page is a page of links to posts that you have written. It propels people deep into your blog (hence the name).
It’s a concept of particular value to a thinker like me. I write posts in a random way. As a result, though I may talk about a topic many times, the posts are scattered throughout my blog. A sneeze page lets me gather those posts, provide some context, and create a more useful resource for finding that topic in my blog.
And it might help the people who read my blog, too.
As you may have noticed, I’ve been writing a lot about deliberate practice. I got tired of having to go digging through the past six months of writing to find those posts. As a result, as of today, over in the right column is a link called Deliberate Practice. I’ll keep updating it as I research, reflect and write.
Let me know what you think.
