I had reason to point someone to one of my photo essays the other day, and then I thought I might as well point them to a couple of other of my notable posts, and so I started looking for the links and trying to remember what my most notable posts would be, and then... I realized this was probably the fourth or fifth time I’d done something like this for somebody, I should have a page of my greatest hits for easy reference. At first I thought I’d make a page on my own site, the way Gary used to store Hammond’s posts in the brief instant before other boards zapped them for irrelevance and/or excessive quality, but then I thought, well, we have a perfectly good site here, why not just put the links on it? Apart from the pathetically self-aggrandizing aspect, there’s really no reason not to, and I can think of a number of other folks whose most interesting posts or pics I'd be happy to see linked to from one spot.
So here’s my idea for this thread. Anyone who wants can make a list of links to whatever they like of their own writing (or pictures or whatever). No criteria, no maximum or minimum, no explanation needed, it’s just your personal list of your own stuff for your own use. If anyone else wants to go through it all and treat it as a sort of self-selected best of LTHForum for checking out on a slow work day, cool. If the only person who ever uses your list is you (or your mom), that’s okay too.
