File format names

I don't think I ever talked about this.

When it comes to the Permalink name for each entry, I use one "word" made up from a few words for the title and ending with a six digit code. The first two digits are the year, the second two are the month, and the last two are the day of the month. You can see an example in the entry URL above.

I started using this code to preface the name in my receipts file because computers just natually sort them in the proper order. So it was a natural choice for my blogging files.

It's helpful in other ways. When I fix the formatting on older entries, I change the year to put the entry at the top of the stack so to speak. This makes it easier to preview. And if I forget what year it came from, it's right there in the Permalink.
