What I need to find out is if I used a custom field which I use to display a thumbnail per post, how do I insert a function to pull the data from the field and then display it somewhere in the popular post?

Finding other ways to navigate posts – beyond dated archives – in the sidebar is the way to go even for personal blogs. I personally like recent comments and recent posts, and popular posts by view (not comment).

But, I do think that an Archives Page is OK. After all, I have one. lol It drives me insane if I can’t get to a list of everything on the blog I’m reading. It makes me wonder what they are hiding. 🙂

Maybe I’m just nosy.

It makes more sense now to let visitors find content by categories and tags, and other similar ways that utilize keywords rather than dates.

On tech blogs, no this might not make so much sense. But on personal blogs, it is an interesting glimpse into what the author was writing about this time last year.
