With me being back active on the site and posting so many new articles (A big influx since I have now begun adding news to my line-up), I need a way for my users to be able to see all of my articles for a single month (Not to mention that it makes it easier for new people who like my writing style to glance over all my work).
The way I will be doing the archive is pretty much the same as I do my articles...sort of. I will be separating the archive by sections, Gaming, Anime, and Manga; in it will be all things relevant to that particular section: News, Reviews, Interviews, and Editorials. If something spans multiple categories (Such as it could be considered both anime and manga) then I will list it in the section I feel that the majority of the article is aim towards.
Something else will be "Featured Article". I will be doing an "Article of the Month" for what I feel is the best article of that month, regardless of the section it is in, this will be first. I will also list a Featured Article for every single section (Gaming, Anime, and Manga). Also, no matter which section the "Article of the Month" comes from, I will make sure to choose a DIFFERENT featured article for its section so no repeats will happen.
Every article will have a smaller version of its featured image along with its title, the type of article it is (Gaming News, Anime Editorial, Manga Interview, etc), and the date that it was posted. It will include a hyper link that goes to that article, opening in a separate window so you do not have to leave the archive.
While I feel that an archive over to the side would have been very easy to do, I feel this will give everyone access to what they want a lot quicker since you may only be looking for anime from the month of February. Sure, you can click on the tab but you may see something in gaming that catches your eye, I think this is a fine alternative.
Look for it coming very soon. Archives will be posted on the first day of the next month (February's archive will be posted on March 1st). I hope you look out for it!
