For a few years now, I’ve wanted a date/title index for my blog. I searched for a plugin to do that easily and simply, and couldn’t find one. I hired an earnest flunky to do so. He couldn’t find one either. I decided to live with the current situation, and stop wasting my time searching for a tool. But every so often, I’d search again anyway. Find nothing. Remind myself to stop wasting time.
A couple days ago, one such search turned up Simple Yearly Archive. Which is on release 2.2, and has been around for years.
Anyway, the blog now has an archive page under the “Blog” menu.
This whole incident has reminded me that search engines are useless. It has also trained me to waste time.
