Shows Blog Gets First Entry

I inaugurated my Shows and Trips blog with an edgy review of ISA’s Automation Week.

Shows and Trips blog

My big snit:  Here we are coming out of a recession, and they solve weak attendance figures by raising prices and limiting access.

Guess I don’t have to worry about booking that trip.

Shows Schedule Gets Tube and Pipe Entries

I’m deep into campaigning a candidate to the steel tube and pipe industry, so there’s no saving me now. I found two industry shows dead on for this sector. Both are loaded and linked in.

New Stuff

We’re going to lighten the load on reader’s of my Famous Green Update Letter and my editorial blog Recruiter’s View.

Both of those literary masterpieces have a tendency to get longer than a Russian May Day speech.

I come by it honestly.  Continued…

Alternate Menu

Here’s an Alternate Menu I’m using, at least temporarily.

As I keep crashing forward, it offers two solutions at once:

  • My simple, simple menu on the web page can only link to pages on the immediate site.  (In my blogging frenzy, I’m adding more and more manual links.)   A menu on a text page solves that in one quick shot.

  • I’m now adding even more blog pages.  Fantastic for firing off all kinds of updates.  Confusing for me, and tough on the creaky menu system.  A text page of menu links solves that one, too.   Continued…

Blog Moving Day

I relocated some of the blog pages we’ve come to know and love.

It would take a pretty good eye to catch the difference.  Basically, blogs called blog1, blog2, blog3 have been humanized.

I created duplicates of Featured Candidates, Featured Careers, and Latest.  The old set will fade into the sunset, and the new set is already linked up and working just fine.

If I didn’t tell you, you probably wouldn’t know.

So why did I tell you?

I don’t know.

NAR

Not rifles. Realtors!

The link to the National Association of Realtors is added to the Trends section, under Housing.

Federal Reserve Web Pages

Oh, No! I may be ready to get my official geek T-shirt and membership card!

I just loaded links to the Federal Reserve System in the Trends section. It includes links to the Board of Governors and each of the 12 Regional Banks.

Worse: I’m really enjoying reading this stuff.

Uh-oh.

Featured Candidates

Looks MUCH better in the WordPress format. I’m staying with it.

Check it out here: Featured Candidates.

Secret Menu

The main page presents strangely on my BlackBerry, pushing menu items and links way down the page. I’ve found a trick to help me get to page links (Hit “B” to go to the bottom of the page. That’s where they accumulate.)

In the meantime, there’s a little test I’m running. There’s a secret Alternate Menu in Extras. Click on that, and the links will display a little better.

Did I say Step At A Time yet? Step At A Time.

Featured Candidates Goes To WordPress

Regular visitors may notice that I’m slowly migrating much of my work over to WordPress. It’s been a great way to speed up the process of getting information out on the web.

Not only is it quicker, but WordPress shows up much better on handhelds than anything else I have on my site.

Only downside: I have two different menu formats at the same time. Gotta pick your battles, huh?
