Test II

into the elysian fields he goes…
we await you they sayeth
the elfin faeiries!

When I chose this Blog format, I didn’t realize how valuable “Pages” would be.  A WordPress “Post” is blogged out to everyone and then lost in the dust when a zillion other Posts are added on top of it.  Categories help (I never found a use for “Tags” in this context), but it’s still easy to lose track of something if you’re serious about blogging.  I hunted for the PIAVA Review and Theta Posts so often that I finally made separate Categories for them! 

A “Page” sits behind a button or link on the Blog’s home page, and never gets lost.  So I’m emulating a Page by using the Category “1.Calendar” to sit permanently on the very top of the very long Categories list, to the right of the Blog text.

Note that you have to be at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/ to see the Categories list; if you’re pointing at any single post, such as https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/03/fate-and-choice/ , the Categories list doesn’t appear.

So often I’ve asked myself, “Now, when was that Station happening?” or “Which planet was it that’s Stationary today?” or the like, and it’s a pain to plow back through all those words to find it.  Yes, I could look in the ephemerides, but since I use so many weird ‘roids and dwarves (planets), that isn’t easy either.  So I’m putting a Calendar into a Post I’ll call Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/03/calendar/). in a Category called “1.Calendar” so it’ll be at the top of the list, and I’ll modify the Calendar Post regularly to include the latest information, with the most recent at the top.  Since I’ll only be editing an existing Post, you won’t get an email every time I update it, unless I send out a special “Calendar Updated!” post, which I’ll do when it seems important.
