Each month, after I compose and submit my Remembering Danvers column to the Danvers Herald editor, I intend to add to this blog a link to the published version.  I try to remember to watch for it online, but my days are full with other projects and the weeks go by...    Today I took a moment to catch up and search for columns that I had not yet linked.

 The pleasures of singing with friends was published online Aug 6, 2012.

 The practical birthday gift was published on Sept 7, 2012.

I know that there are still some unlinked columns from last spring and early summer.  I haven't been able to find them online and suspect that they were never posted (or were not put in the usual place to display under "Columnists"). I was told by the previous editor that those columns appeared in print. I don't expect the new editor would have time to find and upload those older columns.  I do, of course, have my original text as submitted, so could upload a pdf copy to share.  I prefer, however, to link to the version that was published.  Until I see it online, I'm not sure what title the editor chose.

If you wish to see a column that you missed, let me know.  I know that some links to older columns no longer work. (Changes over the years on the Danvers Herald website have sometimes "broken" earlier links.)  I've fixed many of them.  Please let me know if you encounter a non-working link. Thanks!

It is my intention to have this blog function as an index to all my Remembering Danvers columns.  I realize, however, that the organization of the blog -- chronological, as I wrote them -- may not have meaning to anyone except me.  Perhaps someday I should create a topical index, or stop blogging and consider creation of a book of selected columns.  For today, I'm happy just to add these new links.
