After experimenting with my well-being essay, I think I might paste all my essays into blog posts, rather than having them hosted externally as Word documents. Here are the advantages to the change, as I see it:
1) Blog posts are more conveniently accessible. When browsing online papers, I much prefer using my web browser (Firefox of course) to Word or Acrobat. I assume I'm not the only one?
2) My blog has a higher Google rating, so interested people are more likely to find it, and plagiarists are more likely to get caught.
3) People can leave comments! (They probably won't, since most people can't be bothered reading essays let alone responding to them. But hey, you never know. Maybe one of them will be on a topic that someone else is interested in too.)
4) It's just so much fun to jump back and forth with the footnote links. (Really, it is. You should try it!)
So, my plan is to post an essay a day until I run out (which shouldn't take long). I might even put up some of my crappy first-year essays, depending on how shameless I'm feeling. Once I'm done, I'll categorize them according to topic, just like a normal post, and remove the separate 'essays' category.
