Classic Entries

Jacob Nielsen has a list of Top Ten Blog Design Mistakes. Number 5 is "Classic hits are buried" where he suggests that it is useful for readers if you list your most 'important' entries prominently as well as regularly back linking to earlier posts. This sounds like sensible stuff; until you have to work out what your classic entries are from the other 945* not so classic postings...

Back in 2005 I started this list of classic entries and, strangely, most of the entries on the list are still pre-2005! I think that's more due to the fact that my writing was more opinionated back then, whereas now it's more technical, it's also because most of the entries in the list are still the most popular ones on the blog! Anyway. I've now updated the list and added some post 2005 entries...

Note that the 945 figure was correct as of 14th September 2017...
