Chronicles of Personal Practice 5

Starting out the new year with a continuation of additions to the blogroll. Had a good amount of time to gather and read so in a couple more posts I will put up more. Am thinking to do a more detailed classification of things along the side and on the links directory page (they are both the same-the page is automatically generated with a template). The further detail though has been a toss up between dividing the lists into schools, locations or gender of writer. I’ve decided on the latter for the individuals and schools for the teachers. Those who are in an indeterminate state or who don’t identify (either gender-wise or school-wise) will remain in the general catagory.

Now that there’s getting to be quite a few of these listings am considering plopping them into a database and multiply categorizing and coming up with a nice, easy to update table that I can stick on a page of its own. We’ll see how it goes. Someone at Buddhaworld (same person who runs The Buddha is My DJ blog) gave these listings a plug so thanks you. Hope they are useful for folks.

  1. Thanks so much for linking me! I just posted some new Buddhist related cartoons. You’re on my blogroll now and I will be sure to keep up with your lovely site. Thanks! Angela, Downward Facing Blog

  2. Came upon this quite by random. I am married to Scurrilous Monk. He has not written much for quite a few years because he has been very ill…living day by day has become hard.
