One of the challenges of being a writer with a long list of articles on the Internet is that some of your good content gets scattered across different sites as technology changes and platforms tend to go out of favor.
While some of the content that we create is best left in its almost lost condition, some of it is worth saving. Then there is some that you save for strange reasons. You will notice that in the first article I saved from the electronic dustballs of the Internet. Some articles are here just because I was experimenting with moving them because they were short.
As this is a first effort to bring home some of those posts with touches of enduring value, I am not sure what the end result will be. I do know that doing this is not a simple or quick process. Before an article is moved, content has to be updated, images rescued or re-discovered and links fixed. Only once all that is done can an article can be posted in its new modern home. For that reason this page will get updated as I have time and make some progress on the task.
You will also notice that I am experimenting with formats, and I think I have everything nailed down. I will likely convert my few early experiments which were done with Google Docs. I have done that to the very first one I moved to see if I really like the new format and I think it works well.
I am going to try to keep the articles organized in a format will make this page a good introduction to the Crystal Coast.
