It’s been a long time coming. There’s been a lot of discussion behind the scenes. And now, it’s finally happening.
Soon, the sub-blogs at The League of Ordinary Gentlemen will be no more. Even The League of Ordinary Gentlemen itself is undergoing significant changes. For instance, we’re changing the name. It’s now Ordinary Times. Editor-in-Chief Erik Kain introduces the newly-revamped blog — which looks really more of a net magazine, in my opinion.
Not A Potted Plant will become a category of posts within Ordinary Times. You’ll be able to find posts from Vikram, Will, and I in the sub-category there. But our posts will mingle with what were formerly front-page League posts, sometimes to be promoted to “posts of note” with the nice rotating picture, sometimes just appearing in regular rotation. But it’ll all be there, on a single page.
Nothing is going to change in terms of content. There will still by Monday Trivia and Linky Friday. It’s adversaria: our sporadic comments about politics, culture, law, money, and whatever else strikes our fancy will not end for the foreseeable future. But the look, the functionality, and the integration with our fellow authors will be much better.
Some people want to just read stuff by one author. That is a grave mistake, in my opinion, since Ordinary Times has such an impressive cadre of impressive writers, so if you only read the one person you’re friends with, you’re really missing out on the wealth of ideas in circulation. But, if you insist, there is a link for the new version of Not A Potted Plant and particularized links for just Burt Likko, Will Truman, and Vikram Bath‘s articles.
Please enjoy our new Ordinary Times!
