As part of the run-up to the 20th anniversary of a local institution, some of us would like to establish a blog for all of us who participate.
We envision posts that record what happened during the 20-year history. The concept is that these articles would be written in the present tense, and posted on the relevant date when the story and images were current.
This means that the blog would have entries posted as early as 1988 - which predates the World Wide Web, and even the public use of the Internet.
So, a couple of questions:
1. Would the wordpress.com software allow/support this range of dates?
2. Would the search engines respond to the pings, crawl, and make searchable those posts with those strange dates.
Yes, the plan is that the blog will continue into the future. At the same time it would have this wonderful and colourful legacy of articles about the people and events.
