So this is my first blog post. I’ve been meaning to set up a blog for some weeks now, but I’ve only just got round to it. It was far easier than I thought it would be; installing Wordpress was a doddle. It seems to have all the functionality I wanted, and I’ve even got backups working already.
I was inspired to set up the blog partly as a self-development tool, and partly for self-promotion. Steve Pavlina also has some words to say on this; I think his notion of ‘journaling’ is slightly more private, but it sounded similar to what I’m going to attempt to achieve here.
