New Feature: Top Headines

Scan down in the sidebar until after the comments.

I realize that sidebar is getting hella-long, but when I put up the two-sidebar templates the content will be more evenly divided between them. I'll have comments near the top of one and top headlines near the top of the other.

Just one headline so far. I'll add more.

Like I've said, the headline-based format of this blog means that I can't really just put up a naked link. I have to say something myeself if I put up a headline (I make exceptions for stories of such interest where I know commenters will want a place to comment, but I don't really have anything to add myself). This has resulted in me not posting 60% of the interesting stories I run accross, whether from tips or my own reading (yes, I do read the news), and keeping 50+ windows open on my computer containing stories I think are interesting but for which haven't yet thought of a take or comment or gag.

Just having the Top Headlines feature will allow me to at least post these stories. I don't have to say anything about them; I just have to provide the link for those who may be interested.

I've wanted this for over a year, since I first saw it on American Digest. I'm so happy that blog-daddy Pixy Misa allowed me to do this, and web-head extraordinaire Emily Starr implemented the code.

One drawback to this format is that there won't be comment space for individual stories. I'll get into the habit of opening a Top Headlines post every day, for those who may wish to comment on stories for which there is no specific blog entry. If there's a whole lot of interest in one particular story, I'll change the post so that it's dedicated particularly to the hot debate, and then start another Top Headlines thread for everything else.
