I've been talking about posting the links I've found over the past several years of researching stuff for my game. I've got stuff on Japan that fanfic writers really, really need to read to avoid cultural goofs. I've got stuff on Ancient Egypt. I've got stuff. I'm losing track of the stuff so putting it up in an organized way on my LJ would seem to be a good way to allowing others to benefit from my Google addiction AND keeping track of it for myself.
But actually organizing the posts and how I would present the information had me chasing my tail. Forthright to the rescue! I realized that her Sesshoumaru Syllabus solves a similar problem so I emailed her to find out how she manages it and she graciously helped me out.
So, instead of doing two or three large posts I'm going to be doing a separate post for each link with commentary on the material and just like Forth I'll do a main post with a general introduction and a listing of the sub-categories backdated to a point before the LJ version of my blog started. The “Reference Library” Link to the right will take you to the main directory which is empty at the moment except for some place holding text but which will give you an easy way to find info by subject.
Anybody know how to change the text header for the Blurb box?
To avoid spaming my friends, and to give those that are interested a chance to check them out, I won't add more than a link a day.
I'm thinking about copying some of my posts from the Oops! thread at WASIF and adding them in somehow. Oops! is a thread I started in which members are encouraged to post factual errors they find in professional and fan fiction along with the correct information. I think it would fit in with this pretty well. We'll see.
Comments and suggestions will be welcome.
