A weblog post would be nice.  If you feel really adventurous you can
even set up a 'FreeBSD Wiki' with your tutorials.

Another good thing you can do is to prepare SGML articles for your
mini-guides and post them to freebsd-doc for inclusion to the official
doc/ tree.  This is a bit more difficult than a personal wiki though,
because: (1) you would have to learn SGML to write the source of the
article itself and (2) you have to convince the doc team that the
article is sufficiently good and necessary before it's committed and,
more importantly, (3) it would be nice if you are prepared to 'maintain'
the text in the future.
