I've read lots of advice, howto, intro, and helpful things on the internet about modeling railroads.

But nowhere is there any information for the beginner, such as myself, on how to document a build online. A sort of best practices for noobs. Sure I can read about how to blog one place and macro photo in another; there's an article or two published about photographing models every now and then. Composition and framing subjects aside, there isn't much in terms of sharing the process of building itself.

Some options:

  • dedicated site / cms / blog 
  • hosted blog (like this one)
  • facebook / google+
  • flickr / instagram
  • live video stream
They all have their pluses and minuses. For now, it seems like the hosted blog is the best way. They're great for just text and photos with tagging. The only problem with it is the backing up the posts on to a computer I own - an easily solved problem.
 
I'll will try to document my build here ~ if it gets in the way, a webcam and live stream will replace it.
