Recipes and Tutorials

I thought I was being all clever when I reorganized my blog to add those nifty little tabs at the top under my header. Between those and the labels feature that Blogger has, I thought to myself, "Now it will be a breeze to find anything in my blog! Yay!"

Um, not so much.

It recently came to my attention that when you click those handy little labels (the tabs were pretty much just links to them) that you didn't get all the posts with the desired label. You got about nine. This isn't so bad for some subjects, but for things that I might want to go back and find for reference, such as recipes or tutorials, this is a problem because I've posted more than nine of them.

Also, even if the labels did work properly and brought up everything the way they should, you would still have to scroll through every post to get to the one you wanted. If it was an older tutorial... well, what a pain!

So, yesterday, I made new pages for all of my recipes and tutorials. To see them, just click the tab under the header that says MAKE STUFF then the either TUTORIALS or FOOD. Or you could just click here to see tutorials and here to see recipes. Either way, I think this will streamline things a bit and make my blog easier to use, both for my readers and myself as a reference tool

****Edited to Add****

You'll notice I also finally added the Older/Newer post navigation buttons at the end of the page. It was a bit more difficult to add them because I use a "classic" template and I couldn't find the correct code for the longest time!

Funny that you are blogging about this because I was digging around your blog yesterday morning trying to find that adorable card you made for your husband with Sawyer's handprints....I tried to look in the June archive because I thought it was for Father's Day. Only a few posts came up that way. I ended up finding it on FB. I am planning on making something similar for Grandparent's Day in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Thanks for adding the older/newer posts links. I've fallen behind in reading some blogs, and when I wanted to catch up, I needed to use the archives. Blogger always displays the amount of posts you specify in your settings. This goes for the home page and archives as well. To see more, you need to click older posts.

Well, I was reading, and didn't see the older posts link, so I thought you only posted those few posts that month. When I realized every month's posts only start around the 20th of that month, I began to suspect that there really are posts from the 1st to the 20th of each month, but I had no way of accessing them.
Eventually I came across a followup post about your miscarriage, and thought- hey, I never knew about that! I tried to find the other posts about it, and then saw the older/newer links had appeared. At first I thought I was losing my mind. How could I have not seen them if they were so huge and red?? But now I know you added them right in middle of my back-reading.

Sorry about your miscarriage. :( :(
