Upcoming Changes

Now that my recent series on The 10 Greatest U2 Singles is completed and all ten installments are available for you to read at your leisure, it’s time to get caught up with the latest developments involving this website.
 
A little while back, Windows Live Spaces implemented some new features and changes.  The most annoying alteration involved my lists.  In the past, whenever you started adding items to an existing list the newest entries would go right under the ones you had already saved.  In other words, every list featured items in chronological order or the order you typed and saved them in.  No longer.  Since last month’s update you may have noticed that new entries on the Fading To Black and Writings Of Dennis Earl blog lists started appearing at the top rather than the bottom.  Essentially, the order was reversed.  The good news is that you can now put list items in any order you want, something that was long overdue.  I’ve just finished restoring the lists to their original orders and everything is fine again.
 
Speaking of lists, there’ll be another one for my FTB entries up very soon.  I’m close to the 100-link limit on my first one and therefore, need to make some room for a follow-up.  As a result, The Funniest People Alive will be deleted.  You’re only allowed 20 lists on here so in order to fit in the second FTB blog list, something has to go.
 
Also, I’m planning to take down most of my Top 10 and Worst 10 movie lists.  In their place, you’ll see lists of Great Movies and Awful Movies.  There’ll be lots of terrific titles to check out and plenty of dreck to avoid.
 
It might be time for a new layout and profile pic.  The current design has been up for almost a year but it shouldn’t stay forever.  It’s always best not to get too attached to a visual concept.  That way, you can experiment with new looks and try to hook new readers.  I’ll see what I can find.
 
At this point, I’m very tempted to remove my Amazon Book List.  There haven’t been any clicks lately and more importantly, not one single order.  It would be nice to make money blogging with this site but thus far, it’s been impossible to make one red cent.  I’m open to any good ideas anyone has about this.  You can reach me at dennischarlesearl@hotmail.com.  In fact, you can email me at any time about anything related to this website.  It’s always great getting feedback.
 
It’s uncertain what’s to come content-wise on The Writings Of Dennis Earl as the summer transitions into fall.  All I can tell you is to keep visiting and enjoying the site.  New stuff is on the way.
