Five Years Of Chamblee 54

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on September 21, 2010

The Chamblee54 blog started five years ago today. There were 264 posts on blogspot, and 977 on WordPress. It is a lot of fun to produce, and hopefully to read.

Last year was the year for a proper anniversary post. There was also a helpful feature regarding rules for blogging. Both were profusely illustrated, which helps when you get tired of reading.

Chamblee54, hopefully, will always be improving. This year has seen the addition of historic photos. This looks like a well that will never run dry. There is an unlimited supply of current photos, both self shot and copied from others.

One theme that keeps popping up is learning by doing. Just sit down, put your fingers on top of the keyboard, and turn the faucet on. A bit of editing is helpful. Spell check and good grammar will make you look less stupid. Stay focused on the end result, and do not spend two hours googling a minor detail.

For those who read this endeavor, a big thank you. For those who produce, and inspire PG, another big thank you. WordPress is a wonderful operation, and deserves a round of applause. The same could be said for GIMP , is an image manipulation program, and an open source of wonder. Pictures today are from ” The Special Collections and Archives,Georgia State University Library”. The other major source of historic photos is The Library of Congress. Thank you to all, and stay tuned for more pretty pictures and ugly opinions.
