In a previous post I described my workflow for side projects in general. I wrote that throughout the project I publish blog posts describing my thoughts, plans, progress, etc.
In this post I describe in further detail the technicalities of side-project-related blog posts. I explain my guidelines and considerations for some of the common blog posts that accompany side projects. I also describe how I use WordPress features and plugins to generate project index pages and lists of active and archived projects. These features include custom fields, page hierarchies, and queries, with a couple of plugins and template modifications.
