For quite some time I have wanted to start a blog on HL2 modding. I have plenty of experience but you won't find any released mods by me, because my projects never passed the threshold of having chances to release. I still want to show what I have learned through the years. Maybe it would be best to release a series of tutorials but I like ModDB as a forum for exchange of modders' information.
Maybe I'll give it a try with mod planning basics and then move on to mapping and modeling. I'd like to use images but they take so much time to do I have to consider whether I'm willing to do it at all or not.
In the mean time, check out my comments section for a preview of what I know.
