so, what’s a blog?

I’ve read lots of other people’s blogs and have left posts on them too, but the thought of having my own never really crossed my mind until recently. I was posting messages on a technical forum and I wanted to attach code and an example swf file and I couldn’t. It was then that I though maybe I should activate my own personal web site. I have already registered simon.palmer.com, so off I went in search of a hosting company that would be cheap (free) and allow me to stick software up on my domain. They do exist, but it was looking like a pain.

It was then that I thought of a blog and a quick google for “free blog software” threw up wordpress. I recognised the name and 10 mins later here I am posting my first message…

I guess my Christmas present to myself is a blog.

Pretty easy!
