Something New Has Arrived

Reaction: 
Some recent comments got me to acting on an idea I have had almost since the beginning of this blog. Basically, the comments spoke of the confusion of trying to follow multiple story lines through a blog. I came up with a solution.

Announcing, the creation of -

Legion Headquarters.

This is a place where readers can follow their favorite Authors, Heroes, or Story Lines.

Jump to the link and click on your favorite Author link at the bottom. (Currently, there are six Author links because six Authors have submitted stories.)

The Author link will give a short biography for the Author, including any (known) awards and credits they may have.

At the bottom of the Author link page are links to the Heroes they have written about. Click on the one you wish to know more about.

The Hero link will provide information on the hero, such as first appearance, background information not included in any story, pictures, etc.

At the bottom of the Hero link are links to the stories this Author has written for this Hero. Included in this list is a link to the various Villains this Hero has faced via this Author.

Click on the Story link to get all episodes of a Hero's stories on a single page. Click on the Villains Faced link to get a list of Villains with biographical information.

We will still post stories on this blog, so those of you who have Follower links will know when new stories are available. But for those who are new readers, jumping to the Legion Headquarters link will make it easy for them to read previous episodes in the story.

I hope Authors and Readers alike will visit this site and render their feedback here, or by emailing me. Authors, please email me with additions/corrections/deletions of any information about you and/or your heroes.

Take a visit and let me know what you think.

Thanks

EDIT NOTE: You can also click on the Sitemap under Navigation (upper left) and see everything at once.

I think it's a brilliant idea and it's a good-looking site although I'm finding it hard to navigate.

I do like the idea of being able to follow all the episodes of a story in one place.

I like to use the sitemap to quickly jump from one place to another. I expand it in "tree" format. If that doesn't help I'll see what I can do to make it easier.

That's what I did but I'm not sure it's entirely obvious to everyone. Why not see what the others think?

Sounds like a good idea — it's possible to get everything by clicking on the relevant link in the sidebar, but of course, this delivers in reverse order.

I must have missed this post and the conversation okaying all my stuff to be moved to another site. I for one am not in favor of a new website with my stories posted there. The blog is simple enough to navigate presuming one uses the proper tags.

However, the site looks good with the exception of pale fonts, which I dislike because they are extremely difficult to read!

Further, if you want a second site you can always link to the stories on the original blog.

See the thing for me is that these are my stories, and I cannot control the content of the web pages.

I never even thought of that writtenwyrdd. I suppose I thought once the stories had gone up online they were out of my hands or maybe I just didn't think. That's more likely. I hope you can sort something out with Bevie that you're both happy with.

I must say that I love the Boetha stories and I'm finding the 500 word limit leaves me gasping for more.
