OK, so it’s a recap list of sorts. Not what I expected but good for showing to clients who are trying to get comfortable with using blogging as a tool. Thanks.

That said, I’m not 100% with you on the archive idea. I’d prefer to see: Latest Comments, Most Commented, Most Popular, Recommended, Staff Faves, 5 At Random, (on single post pages maybe even) Related Articles, etc.

My belief is, Archive just says, “Here, you sort it out.” It doesn’t invite them in into something they might be more interested in. It’s more like, “Good luck. Hopefully I’ll see you later.” A Monthly/Yearly archive list gives zero indication to the reader that there may or may not be something they’re interested in.

I’d also like to add Use Tags (aka taxonomies) to this list. They are very underutilized feature of most blogging platforms.
