New I have officially opened the first draft of the Blog Section. It's still in development, even as a rough draft it's not even fully finished yet, but it is functional and in my opinion, a decent start. So, here are a few things that are still being worked on:

Search - At some point, I'll be adding a search form to search blog posts for specific text.

Subscriptions - This will be a bigger thing, and I'll really have to think it through. But it will come in time. I'd like some way of making it so a member can subscribe to be notified anytime a favorite author posts a new blog.

Pages - At the moment, ALL blogs, and ALL blog comments will get displayed on one page. This isn't really a big deal and won't take long to fix, I just figured it didn't matter too much in the beginning. I doubt there will be any explosion of blogs or comments. (Blog Listing and Blog Comment pages in place. Now I just need to AJAX them.)

Blog Picture Tweaks - As it is right now, the way I'm handling the photo attachment, Pinterest doesn't recognize it. So I'll have to change that eventually I guess... (Kind of mad about this one, but oh well. The old way included dynamic images using PHP in order to keep my uploads folder secret, but what can you do?)

Facebook Comments - I'll eventually add the ability to add Facebook comments to various parts of the site, but to be honest, it's not the highest priority for me. I really don't care for Facebook (or any social media for that matter). (Mostly done, Facebook stuff is incredibility frustrating)

I will definitely do subscriptions and a search option, but right now, with no real userbase, it doesn't seem like it's much of a priority to be honest...



And of course, as with the entire site, better layout, colors, graphics, and all that kind of stuff.

If you are reading this, and see something missing from the Blog section that is not listed above, please let me know here.

New I have added a new feature to the Blog section, though I'll be honest and say I'm not 100% sure how it's supposed to work or if I am doing it right. Basically the idea is to provide a URL to the original post when adding/editing a Blog. If the URL is present, a meta tag will be added to the header section of the HTML, and a link will display at the top of the page.

I just don't know if this is how it's supposed to actually work, as I don't know that much about blogs and re-posting and all that. I don't even know if this is something that will actually get use in the first place. I guess time will tell, and if you are reading this and have any thoughts or suggestions, feel free to let me know.
