Rewind

Fontaine Grave - Highland Park Cemetery

Last week, over on The Graveyard Rabbit Online Journal, Denise shared an article on managing our blog archives. I use labels [tags] for my posts and also have installed the widget "Link Within" which does a good job of highlighting older posts at the bottom of new posts. Other than that I don't know of much else I can do. I chose not to use a surname in my label directory so I wouldn't have label overload. If you notice, most of mine will fit into a location label. Since I photograph cemeteries all over I felt it best to group them in this manner and then include a few other categories [labels].

Bookshelf and Walk Update

I'm now at 190 cemeteries that I have taken photos in. I'm slowly getting the albums online. My goal is to have them all online by the end of the year. I'll soon be adding to this number. I'm going to New York in a few weeks and have been searching online for information on the cemeteries in the area of my visit. I have always wanted to visit east coast cemeteries and am so excited about this trip.


I've also moved a book from my wishlist to my cemetery bookshelf: Beautiful Death.

What books are on your cemetery bookshelf?
