What is this?
Think of a musty sheaf of old papers lying on the floor in a forgotten corner of some dusty old library. That’s the kind of pointless pile of documents I want to make here. These are miscellaneous scans that I have made of papers that I have, generally things that are or were important to me in some way, or that I collected for some reason, though sometimes they’re just stuff that happened to come along on my life’s journey slotted somewhere between the pages of a book.
Scans on this page can include things like school worksheets, maps (either printed or hand-drawn), song sheets, journal pages, odd collectible cards or profile cards, brocades and small posters, and many other things. There’s also a good chance that if something threatens to overwhelm this table with entries, or obviously is in a special category of its own along with many other scans, I might eventually split it off from this table into its own section as well, either on the main Table of Contents page or as a sub-page within my collections page.
These are the different shelves in my personal library (and they all go off to different webpages):
ට Shelf 1: My Diary Entries — for my life/travel blog posts.
ට Shelf 2: Winter Night Library — for scans of books, booklets, newsletters, and magazines.
ට Shelf 3: Jumbled Letters — for long-form writing.
ට Shelf 4: Shelves of Odd Curios — for collections of pictures.
ට Shelf 5: Life Through A Mailbox — for scans of brochures, leaflets, ads, and the like.
ට Shelf 6: A Potpourri of Papers — for miscellaneous scans that aren’t in any other category. (You are here)
ට Shelf 7: My Dream Diary — for my personal diary entries.
As a note, while these documents will largely be .jpg or .png scans, if the name of a picture file ends in -scaled.jpg or -scaled.png, that’s WordPress doing its magic to generate a smaller version of the picture file, and if you want to see the actual full-sized picture for some reason, just open the same URL in a new browser tab/window without the -scaled part of the filename and it should generate the full version of the file. For example, filename-scaled.jpg > filename.jpg.
