I thought it was fantastic (even over […]

Blogging on WordPress

May 5th, 2006 · No Comments · Social Media

Well after listening to Neville Hobson evangelizing the wonders of WordPress I decided I had better give it a try. My daytime blog uses MoveableType on my own web server, but to be honest I am afraid to touch it in case it falls over.  I’m proud to say I installed it myself but every time I try and change […]
