    So your first step would be uploading the mod (skip this step if you've already done that):
    Get all your modfiles all in the same folder somewhere. Download the development tools (games/tools in steam)
    Run the dev tools and run steam workshop uploader.
    Use the top right upload button. Navigate to your .Modinfo.
    Follow the prompts to upload. The uploader may freeze somewhere after committing changes/uploading stuff. Once it freezes for me I know it's uploaded lol.

    To push an update to that same mod after uploading:
    Run the dev tools/steam uploader.
    Gather all your updated files in a folder.
    In the middle box you will see a list of mods you have uploaded to steam. If not refresh/reset.
    Click on the mod you want to update. A new option to "upload a new version" will appear. Click it and follow the standard upload prompts.
    In steam on the right side of the mod page, under the thumbnail image, there will be a changes number. That should increment every time you upload a new version. Click view changes and as the owner you can edit each change log.
