Blog Note: Orginization

I am terrible at tagging my posts.  Terrible. I forget every single time. I then promise myself I will start to tag. I do it for a bit. I forget again.  The only conclusion is that tagging does not work for me and I have to develop another method of internal organization.

Because there is a search function to search inside of the blog, I've started turning posts into topic format.  Hopefully, this will become more common for topic posts.  Normal just post posts will remain randomly titled as they always are.  Because I have no idea what people read and if people want to skip over topics or find topics easily I'm trying to categorize them.

Right now I kind of have a few topics I'm trying to use with regularity.

Rambling: First: These will almost always have a TL;DR. These are thought posts.  I don't know what else to call them.  Normally I dig around in my own mind and thoughts and coat the blog all over with my personal opinions on various aspects, often social, of Eve.  I have no idea why I write these.  I am also never sure how they will be taken.  Putting up a deep, personal opinion can be hard (for me).  I do it anyway.  I often expect these posts to be laughed at and trolled.  These are the types of things that I can fill chat rooms with blocks of text over while people stare at me in somewhat horrified, stunned "wtf".  I get passionate about things with no one to ramble to about them. This way they can be easier skipped!

Origin of a Spaceship: These belong to the Origin of a Spaceship 'book' I am creating. If anyone is curious, this is an ongoing project that I am trying to put up one topic per week.  I welcome topic suggestions.  If you like it and want to see something turned into randomness from my imagination, send me a mail/make a comment/whatever.  The project is evolving as I figure out how to properly structure the information into the books format for easy reading.

TCS: I think this is the header I will use for the Cougar Store and all of my learning about running a market, trading and my whining about hauling things. I will whine. I promise.

PewPew: I tried to think of something snazzy and cool but I always call PvP pewpew so I might as well stick with what works.  This way when I write about my adventures in shooting spaceships it is a bit easier.

I won't grant the CSM with an entire sub title but I will try to title CSM posts so that they are easy to skip for those that don't care about it and/or are tired of hearing about it.

Now, I may try to go back and edit some posts with proper topics. I won't promise because every time I think I'm going to do that type of thing I don't.  Anyway, with this little rule set I am creating for myself people should be able to select their subject matter with a bit more ease unless they just read everything.

I try to limit myself to no more than three posts a day.  Normally, most of what I say isn't exciting or time sensitive.  That way I will just slot them over into other days.  I post daily but I don't drive myself to it. I sometimes have skip days and late posts.  I will also continue to dedicate myself to gizoogling the major patch note releases.

And thank you for the comments fixing the typos and mistakes and general things that fill every single thing I write. I'd love to promise that it is only an occasional thing but that would be a lie.  I do try to improve and believe that the general quality of my writing has reflected this.

Thank you for reading! I hope to continue to entertain (for good or bad) with my antics through this game.
