Tags and a catalogue of links

NOTE, October 2007:

This post is now in two sections. The first is a set of the tags (which are also links) that I have been using for The Good Raised Up--and a link to my page. The second section is my original "catalogue of links" that I have been updating occasionally, ever since posting it in 2005.

As always, if you wish to contact me directly, please email me at lizopp AT gmail DOT com.


Tags used in The Good Raised Up

  • My page

  • Catalogue of links

    A few months ago [Spring, Summer 2005], I was coming across so many outstanding blog-posts that I wanted a way to catalogue them for easy retrieval... well, easier, anyway. I began cutting-and-pasting the links to these posts on my computer's "Post-It note" application, and now that list is quite long.

    So it's time for me to post them now, so I can find them later. From time to time, I'll likely add to the list. No doubt I will not include everyone's favorite post or series of posts, and for that, I apologize in advance.

    My intention is completely selfish and self-serving: that is, for me myself to have a way to access what has resonated deeply with me, or has given me tremendous food for thought at the time.


    NOTE, June 2006: Beppe's links no longer work, since the original "beppeblog" has transitioned to another site. I am, however, leaving the subject of his posts within the catalogue. I know Beppe is on his own journey, and I miss his take on Quakerism already.

    UPDATE, April 2007: Rob's links no longer work; he's been out of the loop for awhile, but I am only now updating this list... No doubt over time, fewer and fewer links will be active, as people move on.

    Hi Liz,
    Great list. I've been collecting some too on and off but don't have an easy way of outputting...

    I'd recommend the Scrapbook extension for anyone using the Firefox browser: it allows you to easily save and organize copies of webpages. I've just used it to archive Liz's favorites!

    Thanks for this tip, Martin. Do you have a similar tip for Mac users who use the Safari browser? smile
