I have a project I’ve been thinking about, off and on for about 9 months: I want to write down what I can remember of my family lore and also my own family memories from my youth.
- Stories told to me by family members about themselves or other family members.
- Stuff I was a part of.
- My memories of parents and grandparents.
I had been considering some sort of blogging platform for this. A blog is not quite the right script for this because of posts always being pushed down, but categories and tags could help keep things organized.
(It gets worse because I had some other projects that I was going start that would have used Wordpress and those are now on hold too. But I’ll leave them for another post.)
On this family memory project: as I was thinking about what to use besides Wordpress it occurred to me that a wiki might be a better platform. The people characters are sort of constants and every time I named a person it would be great if that was automatically hyperlinked to a page about that person. Same for locations. I’m still playing with the idea but a wiki is starting to sound better than a blog for this.
