Trying Out WordPress

Monday, September 19, 2005

Yesterday, I tried out WordPress to see if I like it enough for my upcoming new blog. And I do. :-) Installing WordPress was a snap; it took just a few minutes. Pretty much all I had to do was change a setting or two and then upload everything.

WordPress doesn't do things exactly as I want, but it is good enough for now. I can always modify the parts I don't like if I need to. WordPress uses PHP, so in the long term I probably have to learn PHP to make all the modifications I want. Shouldn't be too hard.

My goal is to start my new blog this week. I already have a couple of topics I want to write about. I'll write those entries this week and then schedule them. One post a week should be doable for me. If all goes well, I'll increase the frequency.

Most work will go to the design of the blog, though. I don't want just the default WordPress theme. I don't need to change much, because the default theme is very clean, but I do want my own header.
