Docudharma Series Spotlight

Greetings and thanks to all who read, write and comment on this blog.  Our short existence in 2007 has been funtastic – witnessing the birth of the blog and forming a community of like-minded souls. I’m sure 2008 will be amazing as well.    I especially want to thank the contributors who have committed to writing regular original series (just like HBO!).   My latest project has been to put together a Series page (now linked under DharmaDocs) where everyone can have easy access to the content and catch up on their favorites.  

The page is reproduced below….  

notlightnessofbeing has introduced us to the power of RSS  (Really Simple Syndication) feeds and using them to syndicate our content widely throughout the blogosphere.  Another useful function of the Feed is to collect the series in chronological sequence – where all the text is available (no comments) and can be sorted by date.   Also, if you subscribe to the RSS Feed your browser will be automatically updated when a new edition is posted.

  1. Had fun last night 🙂

    In a few days I  plan to edit and reformat this to post on Daily Kos.  I want everyone to know their favorite writers are doing great work here!  

    PS – I only included my own series (lame as it is) to motivate me to continue writing.   I have something brewing, so to speak.  Also, I found that really cute Bus font so I just had to use it.

    love all our logos… although those moving eyes, watching your every move, are a little freaky.

  3. Photobucket

    (This is just for fun!) How in the hell did they do this? Oh well… The page is in Spanish. Just put your first name in the first box, your last name in the second and press the “Visualizar” button. (Or you can put your first name in both boxes… but it’s cooler if you use first and last)

    Yeah, you can make up a name – but it’s not as much fun!

    Pretty tricky, eh? 😉

  4. Oh my, I do love being here with all you guys.  I just spent 10 minutes getting teary on your green PEACE train/bus!  Even if your posting time is “frequently irregular,” that’s a plus!  Look forward to what comes next.

    Blessings and Happy New Year Forward/Further…

  5. I didn’t know all this was going on. Especially looking forward to the Trippin Tuesdays, so I can finally get to wear that tie-dyed t-shirt!

    If having my very own logo doesn’t inspire me to write again, I don’t know what will!

    Do you have a space/time that looks empty that you’d like me to shoot for?

    I hope people find the series tab to be a really useful tool to catch-up on all your favorites with one click. I don’t surf around much, but I’ve never seen this anywhere else… another unique feature- found only at docudharma!

    Asian News by mishima on Saturday mornings!!!

    A really cool pagoda in sihlouette with a sunrise behind?

  6. It looks great. And thanks for including my series. It might motivate me to get back to the original topic!

    Just one question, when I click on any of the series, I get html code. In case it matters, I’m on IE 6.  

  7. …or that they have graphics, but I post regularly my “Quotes for Discussion” series here, as well as my current series “Understanding the Subprime Crisis: A Narrative”.
