Since then, I have uploaded:
- all Hockey teams
- Hockey peripherals (Checklists, multi-subject, specific games or series, etc)
- Hockey team cards
- all baseball teams
- all football teams
- the International basketball teams, which I did not have ready to go when I did the rest of the basketball.
- come up with a better name than "new Cardboard History website". From this moment on, it shall be called the "Cardboard History Gallery" whenever I refer to it. The link shall not change.
That's already a lot of images posted.
One thing I did was research when each team was in operation, and put that info into the caption for each team. For the NBA, I pretty much knew it already. For the other sports, even some non-NBA basketball, and especially football and baseball, it required me to do actual research and all of it was new to me. I also tracked the team's name changes, and make note of a what a team was before and after using that name in the caption for the album. A lot of fun for me.
Now I have a little dilemma. I have no more team stuff ready to go. I have hockey, baseball and football by player ready to go, and basketball letters A through R done and ready. Should I start uploading them, or hold off for now? I need to decide, because I've used up 54% of my storage capacity and I still have not even touched the second largest part of my collection- racing. I know that eventually I'm going to have to pay for more storage capacity, but, since I had to buy a computer this month, combined with the not-insignificant cost of the new car in the driveway and my medical expenses, I don't know when that will be. I also have a couple other things I want to do with the site that I have not even mentioned yet, so an upgrade is a definite...I just don't know when.
My two options are, work on uploading what I have ready to go until I get close to running out of space (leaving enough room for updating the teams on the 1st of each month, or beginning to anyway)
Work on finishing prepping the letters. I still have most of S-Z for basketball, and I have not even started racing, non-sports or other sports yet. I won't be doing teams for the latter three topics, at least not yet (I will do NASCAR eventually) This is a very time consuming project. Each large letter in basketball is taking me on average 3 days to do, S is huge and will probably take me more, as will W. I'm not sure what the average for NASCAR will be yet. Other sports and non-sports are fairly small and I should be able to knock each out in a day or two.
I also have a third option but that's not too likely- not do either and just work on scanning more.
I can't do all three at the same time. Sorting letters takes my full attention. I can't do anything else but that when I do it. I CAN scan and upload at the same time.
I'm open to input. In all reality I'll probably do a little of each option.
