Mine the Archives! Explore the Most Popular Posts and Other Caves of Consciousness

Dear Readers,

How to Find Stuff

With Hot Flashbacks, Cool Insights primarily on archive status as of January 1, 2011, I want you to have ways to mine and access the treasure trove of information on this blog.  I have added in the sidebar links to The Most Popular Posts. This feature changes automatically as the frequency of reading specific posts shifts. That’s just one way to access information.

Another is the Search Box. Wonder if I’ve ever had a cool insight on a specific subject? Pop it into the Search Box high on the sidebar. See what you find!

Lastly, you can always check the Blog Archive by date. This is, in some ways, the most tedious (though not really too bad), but definitely the most thorough. If you’re looking for the vast range of materials posted over three years, make a date with posts by date. The Blog Archive is located lower on the sidebar.

Products Still Available—and On Sale!

You’ll note that the two most popular posts ever are about my No Soliciting sign. I still am offering these signs and my e-book, The Training Tape, for just a buck! Purchase in the sidebar via PayPal. A PDF file will be e-mailed to you, usually within 48 hours. This function will ultimately be automated as a download.

About Archives

Blogs are designed in a diary style with the most recent post on top. When a necessary siesta from posting occurs, as in my case, there are no longer automatic posts in the various social media to keep it alive in your mind. So, I realize, it takes a little more effort to give you quick access to what remains always available. For now, Hot Flashbacks, Cool Insights will be more like a regular website—housing static, timeless material.

My experience with this kind of archiving has been fabulous. Since the early 2000s, many of my best astrology articles have been posted on the unique Australian archive, A Place in Space. I cannot tell you over time how many people have seen and appreciated my articles posted there. I hope it will be the same for now for this blog of my heart.

Comments and Signs

I’ll still monitor comments and update the monthly astrology profiles on the sidebar.

Thank you for visiting. I thank my lucky stars for the active years and know that Hot Flashbacks, Cool Insights will continue to do good work on autopilot for now.

Keep insighting a riot,
