Modifying my blog and another MacBook Air Desultory update

Posted By on March 21, 2023

Desultory Definition - Word Of The Day When working with Bing‘s webmaster tools, I noticed that some search results for MyDesultory were missing. After a bit of reading, it looks as if I may have crammed too much into the index HTML page? According to their guidelines (it doesn’t impact other search engines), a heavy index page (+125KB) removes a website from their indexing.

So, I’m going to try lighting up the homepage by removing the “tag cloud” and long list of “recent posts” that were at the bottom. Hopefully it is not a commonly looked at feature (more for my own shortcuts) and that it will help thin down my HTML. If it doesn’t bring the site back into Bing’s good graces, perhaps it is time to eliminate the growing and unused list of tags and categories?

On a further expansion of my spending and new computer build-out, I’ve added a new 15.6” IPS $99 portable CocoPar-brand display (Amazon “renewed” model – Gulp!) It is powered from the Thunderbolt/USB-C port on the MacBook Air M2 and will hopefully travel with me to give me added display space. It is nearly impossible to duplicate my two 27″ monitors, but having to try to do everything on the MacBook was not comfortable. Hopefully this will help as my small iPad on Apple Sidecar was not cutting it?

Also I’ve give up on trying to get comfortable with the Mac OS Stage Manager feature and am going back to just running multiple Desktops/Spaces to keep my windows and deskspaces organized.
