The Bandwagon

Jun 18, 2005

I'm going to try my hand at blogging. Everyone else is doing it; why shouldn't I? Over the past few days I've been looking at a number of blogging solutions thanks to an excellent blog software breakdown. The software I have settled on for now is the surprisingly robust WordPress. Having never done this before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect in the software interface department, but WordPress has surprised me in a number of ways. Adding and managing posts is very easy, and installation was a snap. Best of all, it's completely free.

As usual, I will be tweaking lots of things here and there over the next few weeks. The default theme, 'Kubrick', isn't quite my taste, so I'll either shop for another one or make my own (I prefer the former, since it involves less work). The sidebar clearly needs to be beefed up, and other jots and tiddles need to be dealt with. Stay tuned - I have lots of interesting things to discuss.
