Blog upgrade: Full archive of sketches now at your fingertips!

The savvy web folks here at the Times have given my blog a fabulous upgrade. While the design appears mostly unchanged, the sidebar includes new features to help you navigate the Sketcher archives. Here’s a look at what’s new:

True blog experience: Click on “Next Page” at the bottom of the scroll and you won’t be dumped into a search-results window. You’ll go to more sketches and posts presented in blog form, just like on the blog’s homepage.

Browse the full archive: More than one thousand sketches published over more than 500 posts since 2009 are now just one click away. Find the “Archives” menu on the sidebar to take a trip back to the past.

Categories: Now I can organize blog posts in categories such as buildings, boats, pencil, you name it. Click on the category name at the bottom of each post and all related posts will appear. You can also scroll through the list of categories on the sidebar.

Tag cloud: See all those names of familiar places on the sidebar? Ballard, Fremont, South Park … Click on them to bring up all posts I’ve published with sketches drawn there. Isn’t that awesome?

Well, you can probably tell how excited I am about this upgrade. A big thank you goes to Lauren Rabaino, Times News Apps Editor, for making all this happen.

Please, let me know what you think about the upgrade. I also invite you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Have an idea of an interesting place or person to sketch? Send it my way!
