August 26, 2014

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for 8/26/14

I haven't published an update in a couple of weeks, because there hasn't been much to report.

As many of you know, I started phase two of the project on August 11, which involves creating the new and improved catalog ("Titles") pages. I finally finished the first 40 books of the new and improved catalog pages and published them today.

Sorry it took so long to get it done, but I was also working on some underlying structural and design issues that will make the site easier to maintain over time and I wanted to get them done before I published anything.

There are now 41 titles listed (in addition to the 853 titles that are linked to their respective Amazon hardcopy pages) in the catalog pages that are cross-linked with their respective Colchester Collection title pages, subject pages, and author pages, as well as to any available online Kindle, PDF, and HTML versions of each book.

I'm hoping to settle into a routine of adding 10-15 more crosslinked titles every week. This phase should take about 9-12 months.

August 9, 2014

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for August 8, 2014

I added another 78 titles to The Collection this past week for a grand total of 853 titles.

That completes phase 1 of the redesign of the site, the goal of which was to create a list of roughly 850 books and link them to their Amazon hardcopy page. It took a about three and a half months to finish.

I'll begin phase 2 on Monday, which will include a book page on the site for each of the books listed as well as an author page for every author. I will also create a new and improved "Titles" page by adding links to any Kindle, PDF, and/or HTML versions of the listed books that are available on the web. I have about 30 titles already mocked-up in the new, improved list. I hope to publish a starter version of the new list, by the end of next week, so folks can see what it will look like.

I think phase 2 will take about 6-8 months to complete.

August 2, 2014

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for 8/2/14

I added another 75 titles to the Collection this past week for a total of 775 books. I'm hoping to add another 75 or so next week and complete phase one.

Afterwhich, I will move on to phase two, which at this point means continuing the work I've begun on the new and improved "Titles" pages. This list will include not only a link to the Amazon hardcopy version of each book, but links to any Kindle, PDF, and/or HTML versions available on the web, as well as links to a Colchester Collection book page, an author page, and updated subject pages.

For more about our plans for the Collection please see our road map.

July 26, 2014

The Colchester Collection Weekly Update for 7/26/14

I added 50 more titles to the list for a total of 700.

I also did some more work on the new "Titles" pages. To see a screenshot of what they'll look see the update for 7/12/14.

Over the next two weeks, I'm going to focus on the completing the original "Titles" pages in an effort to reach my first target of having 850 titles listed. This mean I'll be suspending work on the new "Titles" pages until that is done. After that time, I'll be able to focus my energies on completing the new and improved titles pages which will be the heart of the collection, featuring PDF and HTML links as well as links to the Amazon Kindle and hardcopy pages for each book.

To learn more about our ambitions for the project please see our "road map."

July 12, 2014

The Colchester Collection of Nationalist Books Update for 7/12/14

This week, I added 39 more titles to The Collection (and removed one) for a total of 610 books.

I also continued to work on the new and improved "Title" pages, that will be cross-linked, not only to the Amazon hardcopy version of the book (as is currently the case) but to any Kindle, PDF, and/or HTML versions of each title that are available. I currently have 41 titles (in various stages of connectivity) in the new "Title" pages. I haven't uploaded it to the webserver yet, but here's a screenshot:


At this rate I'm hoping to be done with the first iteration of the list (which should have about 850 books altogether, all linked to the Amazon page for that title) by the end of August.

At around that time I should be publishing the first rendition of the new and improved "Title" pages, which I'm hoping will include about 50 titles. I'm further hoping that I'll be able to add 10 additional titles every week thereafter.

This is the new "Subjects" page (which features an alphabetized list of available subjects):


And this is the revamped "Jewishness" subject page:
