A Collection of Personal Essays

I was thinking earlier about what the best way to organize all the longer posts I’ve written was.  If my last sentence was any meter for what’s in these posts, I’m sorry!  In any case, I wanted to label them as more than posts.  Wikipedia defines an ‘essay’ as:

An essay is usually a short piece of writing. It is often written from an author's personal point of view. Essays can be literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author.

One of these days I’m going to write a plug-in for Windows Live Writer that takes a search query and looks it up on Wikipedia.  It then heuristically finds the best definition of said query and sticks it in a <blockquote> tag.

Anyway, back to the topic.  Based on Wikipedia’s definition of an Essay, I can easily call any of these longer posts an essay.  So what I’m going to do is make a static link to this post in my Navigation section, and have a list of links to said essays below.

More to follow.  I just need to make them available online.  And yes, it is very coincidental that at first glance they all reference xkcd.
