BIG news for Gingerology...
What's the feature? Well, check out the new list of GingerFilms on the right-hand side (Ginger Rogers Filmography)... yeah, most of us know those backwards and forwards... BUT, howzabout THIS: click on one of the films...any one you like... AAANNNDDD, presto! You are re-routed, by what we call in the technical world as a 'link', to another blog...JUST for that particular GingerFilm! So...does that mean that Huey has actually set up 70+ blogs? Ummmm....yep, that's what that means, y'all.... (FYI - you can actually 'have' up to 100 blogs set up...so, have at it!).
NOW, I know what y'all are thinking... "...it's really sad about ol' huey...he held it together there for awhile, but now he's at least one sandwich short of a picnic... wonder where they took him off to?" ...or, at least, "Hey...this is pretty cool, but...why do we need a separate blog for EACH GingerFilm?"
Well, howzabout THIS: this is ultimately a way of 'backup', 'archiving', 'file storage', however you want it... AND, it DOES allow for a 'proper' record for each of these films, many of which are engrained in us, while others, not so much... but ALL of them get a home, nevertheless...
As for 'posting', don't be looking for a heap on these sites...in fact, the 'home base' of Gingerology will ALWAYS be the source for 'all things Ginger'... BUT, any post involving a specific film WILL be 'archived' in the correlating blog, for (hopefully) easy access. Additionally, they'll be gobs of pics, music clips, video clips, reviews from all around, and whatever else shows up regarding the film in question...so it should be a pretty nice system.
As for 'updating'...I'll put a date by each of the films on the list...guess I need to go do that now... as well as 'noting' at the top of Gingerology when a particular GingerFilmBlog (GFB for short...) has been 'updated'...hopefully it will keep you (and me) up to date with everything.
NOW, as for the content...yeah, I have a fair idea of how to arrange each blog, BUT...ANY suggestions are MORE than welcome from y'all...since this deal is as much for y'all as yours truly... no, REALLY! :-)
I'll be 'setting up' each of these blogs over the next few weeks... for example, I have the 'background pics' set for quite a few...some I'm not as happy with (thus will probably change), some I am (the one for '42nd Street, for example...perFECT!!!)...but many other 'features' will be added over the sands of time, of course.
Well, heck...THIS has been a long dissertation - my wrists are sore...hope that 'carport tunnel' isn't setting in... oof.
Hope y'all are having a Gingeriffic Weekend!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
