      Since most of us live outside the Chicago area, what may be more helpful is a diary that you write (not just republishing a dozen or more original documents), with links to where people can look at the longer source materials if they want to.

      A paragraph of background information, framed by your observations and analysis, should be enough.

      It's also helpful if you can indicate what actions you are urging people to take, both people in the immediate area and those outside. Or maybe you're not doing that; many diaries are designed to inform people elsewhere in the country about what's going on in one area. (Look at the Wisconsin diaries, for example.) That helps readers figure out why you want us to read this.
