Working on the blog post design

Hello everyone,

I’ve  been working on some blog changes. You probably have not noticed, but I have been making a few tweaks. After looking at several other blogs, I have decided to include a “First time here” page. I am also working on a “Projects: Past and Present”. This second page is as much for me as anyone visiting. It is still in a draft stage at the moment. I will post a notice when it goes live.

Why the “Projects” page?  Sometimes I forget how I did something, or more importantly what tools and materials I used and want to go back to my notes. Some days, I spend more time looking for my notes on something then I do work on a project. For example, my recent post on “Ties for the Northern Maryland,” does not include a list of paints. I realized that the ties on “Slow Train down South” are quite different in coloration than those on the first “Beckleysville” module. I have no idea what mix of paint I used, but wisely I photographed the paint for “Beckleysville’s” ties. By having a list of projects and using the categories feature more selectively, I hope to be able to retrieve my notes in a timely fashion.

For future posts, I decided to include a list of tools and materials along with where I obtained said items ( if I know myself!) at the beginning of the post along with a short description of the project. If it isn’t of interest to a reader they can move on. If it isn’t the correct reference, I can keep searching for the correct blog entry!

    I recognise that problem!
