Will do RFD.

I setup a URL for the new site, and have everything ready to go, but I'm still thinking about hitting the "go live" switch. I've got two young kids, a full time job, I'm taking a University course part-time and a tech blog on the go. I'm not sure I have the time and/or energy to invest in the basement blog.

I'm about a third of the way done the framing and I can already think of about 50 articles to write that I don't currently have time for. Framing tips (always be mindful of where the drywall will attach!), subfloor selection, workspace prep, layout ideas, permit drawings etc....

Like you said, each post would only be useful with lots of pictures as well.

The idea isn't dead. Maybe when school is over in April or maybe if I could enlist some guest bloggers, but that would be tough given that it's about MY basement.

So I've been tinkering on and off with this since I posted the idea. I've written a couple of posts and I think I could make it work. It needs more pictures probably and I'll definitely get into more detail but if you're interested in checking it out send me a PM and I'll shoot the URL to you.

Thanks everyone for the feedback - we'll see how it goes. If people seem to dive in and ask questions/offer suggestions I'll probably keep it going but if it tanks after a week....well, we'll see.

Thanks again

Oh, I should also mention the blog isn't fully "open" yet in that this is the first place I've mentioned it. You guys/girls are the first group of....shall we say "beta" users.
