The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for 8/30/14

Just added 6 more titles to the new and improved catalog pages, for a total of 47 titles that are cross-linked to their respective Amazon.com hardcopy page, plus any Kindle, PDF, and/or HTML versions of each book that are available on the web.

There are also a total of 853 titles in the old version of the catalog, each of which are linked to an Amazon hardcopy page.

At the current pace I'll be able to add about 10 titles each week to the new and improved catalog.

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.

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.

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.
