These are links compiled from comments from the GFHC: Links! diary from a couple of months back. I've entered them in the categories as they were suggested. If I missed any, or put any in the wrong category, let me know. Or if you are an editor, please feel free to change or add to it.

I haven't read every link, except to make sure the links work, but I want to thank you all for all the suggestions. Hopefully in the future, as we find more links, we'll remember to add to them. As always, editors of GFHC are free to add to them as well.

As was previously discussed, I've now entered the link to this diary in the boilerplate. This is the sole reason I'm publishing this diary, but if you want to add links, chat, rec & tip or whatever, go ahead. I'll keep checking. Thanks again.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
