Among the things I’m working on improving for 2015 is to better communicate what pages get added and updated on this blog/website due to the fact that I publish far more pages than posts. The blogging aspect is handled pretty well as every time I add a post, those that choose to follow the blog get alerted to that new content by their chosen source for following. However, when I add a page or update a page (the more website nature of this endeavor), there’s no automatic way to inform people. So, I’ve decided to write a monthly post that outlines what pages are new or updated to make it easier for returning readers to find what is more recent. What follows is the my first “New Additions” monthly post.
Clicking on links below will open the page in a new tab so that it will be easier to follow links on those pages and still get back to this one.
- New journal started for 2015 and accessed from the 2015 Hikes tab. New in 2015 is a map included with each hike described. I went on eight hikes in January.
- ABDSP Peak 2152: Elevation 2152′–Anza Borrego Desert State Park. (Note: this peak is unofficial but a great extension to the Rock Tanks Loop).
