It’s been a while. If I recall correctly, I said I was going to try post on a regular basis. Being a normal person, I promptly ignored my vague goal and went on to live my happy no-blogging life exactly as I had before. Well, I still have an inner urge to blog on a regular basis, but life has a tendency to get in the way. The easiest goals to achieve are the ones you have other people holding you two, the second easiest are the ones you really really want to, beyond that you pretty much need to turn it into a habit.
For me, writing on a regular basis is a desire, but not something a really really want to do. Therefore I’m going to attempt to make writing a daily habit. To this end, I’m making it my goal to have a new post every day, whether it is about configuring an Asterisk server, or describing the pattern on our couch. I’d like to try applying the principles I’ve been learning in my critical thinking class, so don’t be surprised if I make a weird post or two. I will likely write ahead and schedule posts to go out. I don’t like to end up under a lot of pressure for prolonged amount of time, so that is a good way to prevent some of it building up.
When this site was launched a year or more ago, I was planning to pursue freelance web development for my career. One year later, my life has taken an unexpected turn. I’ve been blessed with a job at local IT company, and am taking classes at Kirkwood community college for a degree in LAN management.
Since I found some down time to readdress this site, I’ve changed the theme, name, tagline, and am adding a new post. Currently, my plan is for this blog/site to be a creative outlet for projects and thoughts. I hope you enjoy my ramblings, thoughts, and what ever else I write or post.
I finally I am getting around to setting up my site. The history of this site is something like this.
Find a great deal on web hosting. Get it!
Other stuff………. More other stuff…… Some more other stuff……
Okay, I’ll set up the site.
Bam! Install WordPress, install theme, write this post. Less then 1 hour by my estimate.
Of course there are some more tweaks and minor adjustments to make, but nothing major. Well 2 more pages of content and a contact form, but this is WordPress. It will be a brease.
I have been working with WordPress for several months now. From a users perspective, it is simple and easy to use. From a developers perspective, it is simple and easy to use. I love WordPress!
