Over the years I have been adding monthly “Newsletters” and “Handouts” to the Sidebar of the blog under a Links category. They were added month by month in chronological order so that you would have to scroll down a long list of previous Newsletters and Handouts to get to the more current ones. I did not think I had the ability with the blog theme to change the order of these uploads to latest first and earliest last.
In order to streamline the appearance, I decided to create 2 new Pages at the top of the blog home page where many other pages exist e.g. 2020 Programs, 2002-2019 Previous Programs etc. I created a new page for a “Newsletter Archive” and one for a “Handouts Archive”. Within each of these new pages I have moved links from the older Newsletters and Handouts for the years 2018 going back to 2009. This will allow me to remove the links to the older Newsletters and Handouts from 2018 back to 2009 that were in the right sidebar listing of these documents.
Here is a direct link to the “Newsletter Archive” page of the blog:

On the regular right sidebar of the blog you will continue to see links to the more recent Newsletters and Handouts starting with the year 2019 and now adding in links for 2020 Newsletters and Handouts as they are added.
Visually, you will not need to scroll down the massive lists of these documents to get to the current one.
For many of you it may not make a difference since you accessed the most current Newsletter and Handout via a blog post I did each month that included a link to where the document was located.
I just felt the need to tidy up the appearance of the blog home page and allow access to the older Newsletters and Handouts from within the new “Archive” pages at the top of the blog homepage.
Explore the site and especially the new “Newsletter Archive” and “Handouts Archive” pages at the top of the blog homepage.
All the data is there, just in a different location.
Over the years, this update has been a “New Year Resolution” that has gone unfulfilled. No longer. My 2020 New Year Resolution for the blog appearance has come to fruition!
Hope you like the cleaner looking and shorter looking blog homepage, especially on the right sidebar!
