What to write in an article.
The biggest problem I seem to face is that people have never considered themselves capable of authoring an article, they just don't know where to start. So, here are some suggestions:
- For starters, how you came to own the vehicle.
- Whether it was okay when you got it, needed exterior paint, needed a tart up all over, or was a big restoration.
- Details of mechanical work carried out and reliability of the vehicle and its systems.
- What you have done with it since, ie how far you drive it and how often.
Have a look at the following articles for inspiration, I am not suggesting you have to copy the style, layout or content, but as an idea of what others have come back with after asking the same question you have.
Right click and open in a new window each of the following:
For a very in depth article.
Andrew's Adventures - Saracen.
For an average size article with a good mix of topic.
Derek's Ferret Mk1/2.
For a fairly brief but sufficient article.
Robin buys a Ferret Mk2/3.
Then there is my most prolific author: Rory. His articles are mostly recollections of army life rather than specific vehicle articles.
I am not one of these people who expects that everyone wants to own a pristine "as delivered from the factory" vehicle. I am interested in articles about them all, whether beautifully restored or used as a fun way of off-roading. Its all part of the hobby.
Have a go and see what you dream up. Don't be concerned about spelling or grammar as my site is for collectors by collectors, I don't expect to win any literary prizes. I will fix any glaring errors when I code the article into HTML.
If you want a particular picture to be in a certain position in the article then put something like -put picture 1 here- and so on.
