Blog Updates

Tonight I made a few updates to Braman’s Wanderings.

The first change is an important one as it will add more stability to my blog. I have had a few notifications from friends that I had a virus on my blog. There was actually no problem with my blog, but rather with some of the advertisements that were automatically added to the posts by WordPress. They work hard to control the ads, but unscrupulous advertisers find ways to include pop-ups that are phishing in nature. This usually only happens on mobile media as anti-virus and other controls usually catch this on a computer.

So, I decided it was time to convert to a personal plan and remove the ads from my site. It only costs a couple dollars a month and in the long run is something I will have to do as I run out of media storage.

So, no more ads on Braman’s Wanderings.

Israel Page Header, Braman's Wanderings, BlogkeepingThe second change is that I have added content and cleaned up my Israel page. At the top of each post there is a menu structure with pages about different subjects. You can see that Israel is highlighted in the picture above.

Post listing, Israel Page, Blog maintanenceAnother change on the Israel page is that I changed the way that the posts were listed. Shown above is the previous method.

Bulleted list, blog post listing, blog changesI decided to change to a bulleted list format so that you can see more posts on the screen at one time.

I also need to review the entire page and see if there are other links I need to add, but that is another project to work on later. I may also add some links at the top of the page to the different sections so it is easier to find things.

Check out the changes and let me know how you like the changes and if you have any more ideas as to how I can make the page better.
