A Rough Index of Blogs on the Site

I have gotten to the point where I tell someone that I wrote about a certain subject, see my blog.  But it isn't necessarily easy to find.  So I created a very rough topical index to help, until I get more ambitious.  Updated October 28, 2017.  Copyright Lawrence D. Rohlfing.
