Have y'all been busy downloading all the wonderful Birds In Snow kits today? I know I have. Which made me realize how important it is when we are sharing our work to give our folders consistent and meaningful names. After I had downloaded a bunch of kits and unzipped them, there were quite a few where I couldn't remember exactly who the artist was or where I had gotten it and there was no way to tell from the folder. Some of the folders that I downloaded just had a single number or just the word Paper or Elements. Of course I could open the folder, find the TOU and find the designer's name and rename the file, but that's a lot of extra work.
I guess I would really encourage you to put your name (or entity) and a unique kit name on every folder, even if it is nested inside a container folder - make it easy for clients to keep track of your work (even if they separate the papers and elements/alphas) and know who you are and to honor to your TOU.
A lot of folders that I download will have initials, but I would try to be unique as possible -- SSands is easier to spot on my folder list than ss -- and it's easier to feel a sense of community with a name more so than initials or a number. And to me, scapbooking is so much about community and connecting. But that's just how I see it. I'd love to hear what y'all think and if I'm missing something.
What do you think Blog Train participants? Do you have a system for naming your folders? Ideally, how would you like for me to keep your folder and identify your work on my hard drive?
