Calendar. The blog posts will be posted in chronological order, continuing with Day 168, to keep the continuity of my original daily five months of blogging and to have the blog match my journal of 1971.

New to blogs? If you are new to blogs and are not familiar with the ways in which to navigate, or read, a blog, you may not enjoy the experience and leave.

Blog posts. Reading a blog is like reading a daily or weekly newspaper. Each blog entry is called a “post.” Think of a post as a short article in a paper or magazine. In my case, my blog is mostly a daily entry, to match my 1971 journal—that is if you excuse my one year hiatus in writing. Blogs are organized by chronology—the latest posts being at the top of the page. After a certain period of time, the blog posts are archived. In 36yearsago, by the month.

If you are not following the blog from Day 1, you may not discover the correct order of the blog postings.

Summary & Detail. When viewing the blog postings within a month or a category or tag, a summary of the blog posts appears. The latest post is at the top of the browser page, the oldest post is at the bottom of the browser page. The summary is just a tease of the topic of the day. If interested, click on Read More to see the detail of the post. The detail includes the Transcript (the actual writing in my 1971 journal) and my Reflections, 36 years later.

How to read 36yearsago. Here are the ways in which you can read this blog, especially when you have not followed it from the beginning. As with all blogging, you need to continually use the browser back button and links on the page to move back and forth when reading multiple posts.

Daily List. Click on List in the right column, then Daily List. The daily list provides a chronological listing of posts from the oldest to the latest. It is a good way to scan the blog post titles to determine which to read. You can start from Day 1 and move onward from there.

Monthly Archive. Click on the Month that you wish to browse in the right column to view the monthly summaries. Scroll to the bottom of the web page to begin with the oldest post. Move up the page to get more recent posts.

Categories and Tags. Click on the many tags in the right column, or the broader categories at the top of the right column to see all posts related to that topic. Older posts are at the bottom of the page.

Current month. In most blogs, if you are caught up, you just read the latest posts at the top of the page in the latest monthly grouping.
