Hey folks, I wanted to bounce something off of ya'll. While going through the forums and reading some of the wonderfully awesome content, something I see frequently are titles to the topics that have nothing to do with the topic, or at least not to the observer. For me, it gets a tad frustrating as I wish I could determine a topic by the title, frankly if it's even anything I want to open and read. For example, and I am not picking on anyone here! These are my own made up examples. A topic title "The Best Thing in My Shop" is a title for a topic about a new Miter Saw that someone purchased and they absolutely love the saw. Instead the topic could be titled "My New Makita LS1508F Miter Saw". The first example I used I have no idea what that topic is about or if I even want to read it. While the second example tells me what that topic is about and I have developed an interest in reading it purely by the title name. Here's another one. A title "Another Project" for a topic about a cabinet someone is making, and this is supposed to be an announcement of their embarking on that project. In its place, a more appropriate topic title would be, "Starting an Oak Wall Cabinet" or if you know you are going to create additional topics for the same project, the title could be "Oak Wall Cabinet Part 1". I feel all of you who are not naming your topics to reflect the actual content of your topic, are doing yourself a disservice, I feel folks may just walk on by that topic looking for something with a title they can grab on too, with interest. Also, by titling your topic appropriately we are able to see it appear in search results at a later date, our search engine love titles, it's the first thing it searches for when someone does a search for "oak cabinet". Thanks for reading my friends!
Good Morning Patriot Woodworker's and Guests and Viewers! And what a glorious Monday it is. Well here we are, embarking on yet another great week in our community for sharing, learning, collaborative efforts and just flat out fun and interest. So to the question of the day, what did you do this past weekend and what have you planned for the week ahead? Your replies could be anything regarding woodworking of course, and anything regarding life for certain! We know we are not woodworkers 24/7, many of us have a life outside of woodworking (really?) and we take trips, have other plans with the family, and we may even be dealing with some not so wonderful realities of life, we'd love to read and share that as well. So have at it folks, anything goes, what'd ya do, and what ya doing! Recent happenings Per @Stick486 suggestion for a new sub-forum for our MWTCA projects, we now have a sub-forum live dedicated to the MWTCA What's It project. Thanks Stick! Our blogs, don't forget folks we have a wonderful blogging area for our community, and some nice projects have rolled in recently at Blogs. And for a quick run down on how to use our blogging platform, you can see how at "How to Create a Blog". On a side note: do you know a friend who loves to blog about woodworking? Do you know a professional blogger for woodworking who would like their content to be seen by thousands? Shoot him our way, we'd love to host their blog with us. Moaners and Groaners and Other Dribble and Useless Conversation and Other Drivel topics are long, fast, and fun! Please keep it tame, I was perusing the topics a few days ago and I had to remove some posts due to violations of our Guidelines. Removal of posts in those particular forums will happen without warning and without explanation if they violate any of our Guidelines. It's a pretty big job keeping tabs on the woodworking portion of our community without having to worry about a completely off-topic discussion and if there are violations within it. Thank you all for your understanding! Featured Gallery Check out this wonderful military art work by @oleglenn. And while you are there, see his other albums a well. He's a busy man at that scroll saw!
