Well I finally went and did it – got myself a new home in blogland. I’ve only been plotting this move since September 2006, which I know because the automatic “Hello, world!” post that wordpress supplies was dated September 24, 2006. It has been sitting untouched ever since. For about four, maybe six, months in 2007 I also had a typepad account that I was going to move over to. Yeah, each month I paid those fees for no good reason, since I never set anything up over there….
I keep thinking I’m going to get this blog to look exactly the way I want. But I have finally realized that: a) I don’t have much in the way of design skills (or, more accurately, I have nothing in the way of design skills), and b) if I keep waiting until I do get some design skills I probably will never make the leap. So here I am, leaping. Main reasons: I want to be able to respond directly to comments (which worked fine on blogger for people who supplied their email addresses to blogger, but most commenters don’t do that), and also I’m tired of the formatting issues I was having on blogger.
So I’m still getting things set up over here. I probably have some things to learn about operating a WordPress blog (most notably, I need to quite writing pages when I mean to be writing posts). But in the meantime, I’m going to just jump right in. So if you followed me over here (and I hope you did!), then update your feeds, pull up a chair, and make yourself comfortable. While you’re at it, how about letting me know you’re here? I’ll even try my hand at responding directly to your post, I promise.
