My first post ever was January 5, 2004 so after Blogger deleted my account I took a month off and find it ironic that on January 5, 2006 I started the process of relaunching a new blog. I’ve been very impressed with the variety of things Kristy has done with her blog which made the decision to go with WordPress. I’m further impressed with the simplicity of the WordPress installation and on top of that it has an import function to get your posts and drafts from Blogger into WordPress! It’s a shame I didn’t discover that long before losing all my drafts to Blogger’s indiscretions.

Happy New Year! I expect greatness for 2006!

Glad to be back and thanks! It’s going to take a little bit to get used to WordPress and iron out things like comment moderation. I’ll get a new look going soon.

I started out with blogger but found it to be somewhat limiting. I tried ee, but it was too difficult for me to understand. WordPress has been just right! Have fun with it.
