The Gnome’s Garden
Sometimes a person has to remember what their goal is. The point of doing my editorial column is to have a serious column. It is to get away from the cuteness a bit. Though perhaps returning to the original roots in part is part of the goal.
Originally I had “The Gnome’s Garden” being a place for people to come, gather and discuss the day’s events and news and perhaps listen to The Gnome’s rantings — The Gnome being Me. That was when “The Gnome’s Garden” was a “room” on the Citadel Network hosted on the “Mars Hill” BBS.
Perhaps “The Gnome’s Garden” is a bit “cutesy”, but a column needs a name and I think I’ll try dig out the old description from the original. That — perhaps modified a little — would work as the subtitle and explain it as an editorial column.
Deep in the bowels of the forest you will find strangely glowing moss, mushroom, and other fungi. in the centre you will find a circle of benches and seats around a fire and a large stump where a gnome stand discussing the days events with all who come and listen.
The description was a bit like that…
Anyway, I am thinking on going with either “The Gnome’s Garden” or “A Gnome’s Garden” although “The Gnome’s Garden” is the original name and it allows the Facebook Page to take on the traditional roll of representing the column.
I might use a template similar to those I have used for the Garden in the past, either one of the phoBB ones or even perhaps something like the old Citadel text terminal…? Green on Black? Amber on Black? White on Black?
Let me know your thoughts?
