Big changes are happening with my Top 5 Pens list. Not so much in the content and ranking of the pens, but rather the the meaning of the list as a whole.
In the past, I have used the Top 5 Pens list as a snapshot of what pens I was enjoying the most over the previous few months. That worked well for a while, but as the popularity of the list has grown I realized it needed more clarification on what it means.
Going forward, the list represents my recommendations for each Top 5 category. This adds clarity to what the list is for, and to be honest, that’s what readers were using it for anyway. After each Top 5 entry, I’ll add a bit of my own commentary to discuss any changes or personal favorites I have that may or may not be part of the recommendations themselves.
I know readers still want to hear some of my personal lists on very specific topics and I plan on breaking those down in standard blog posts, hopefully at least once per month.
I would love to hear what you think about the changes to the Top 5 page.. Do the changes make what the page is for more clear? What else would you like to see as part of the Top 5 Pens page?
