The quest for a format for the Rosary Project and a note about affiliate links

Screenshot of Gallery

Part, the first: I haven’t decided on a format yet for the Rosary Project pages. I put a page together for the First Joyful Mystery using an image gallery, but I’m not convinced that that is the way to go. The gallery may make it easy to browse the images, but it makes them smaller than I would like. Larger images are not only more impressive, but they lend themselves more to meditation. Don’t you think?

I’ll put together a page that more closely resembles the way the threads appear on Twitter, with a whole set of Mysteries on one long page. And I’ll also put the Mysteries on separate short pages, too. I’ll do it a few different ways so that you, the reader, have options. And since I don’t have to deal with 280 character constraints here, I can also add information about the artwork, name of the artist, links, and other interesting stuff. Btw, the images are all in the public domain. I’ve scoured the web to find as many good ones as I can. And I still find new things every day. If this keeps up, pretty soon I’ll need more external drives. Another reason to put affliliate links on the blog.

I’d be interested to hear what you think. After all, I’m putting this together for you! :)

Behold! A screenshot of the first ever affiliate links to appear on Catholic Heart & Mind.
Update: May 1, 2019: I removed these from the sidebar. I’ll add them to the booklist soon.

Part, the Second, a note about affiliate links: I’ve finally decided to put affiliate links on the site. I know, I know, I said I didn’t make a dime off of anything on my free WordPress blog and I didn’t. But I also didn’t like the ads that sometimes showed up on here (and I certainly don’t want that on my Rosary pages), so I upgraded away from the free account. That meant adding another expense to my already overly stressed checkbook. (Every time I even look at it now I see it cringe, hoping I’ll change my mind and forget about it, which I do fairly often these days as my mind becomes more and more like Teflon™, nothing sticks to it.) So affiliate links will begin appearing here and, indeed, a few are present already. Behold! The sidebar doth contain them e’en now! :P

Thanks for reading. I hope to hear from you soon!

(Dang it, Grammarly, stop telling me that “e’en” isn’t appropriate in this post. It’s what I want to say and I’m gonna say it, so there! Hmph! Nobody likes a know-it-all, ya know, and besides, you’re making my laptop run hot, not to mention how you’re making my blood boil. Grrrr.)
