<p>things I like to do</p>
Yeah, I know, it's a little rough, but not everything Shakespeare and Frost wrote was a masterpiece in draft stage. Still, the <li> part brings tears to my eyes every time I read it. At any rate, you can check out the progress of my new WordPress blog from time to time at www.samuelricks.com/blog. I'm not really sure what I'm going to put on the blog, but at least I have the interface installed. And that's half the battle. Right?
I'd like to know what the rest of you think of WordPress. I've seen some awesome things done with it, but like most things that require lots of coding, my mind shrinks back with fear every time someone mentions words like MySQl, PHP, or Gravatars. Not my thing. Yet.
Honestly, though, my experience with WordPress thus far has been more daunting than discouraging. As opposed to Blogger, there are so many stinkin' options it's sick. The interface, although relatively intuitive, is pretty much laced with manual controls. If I were an experienced pilot, I'd say it's a lot like knowing how to drive a car, then jumping into a Boeing 747 and trying to get it off the ground. Mmm, maybe that's a tad bit of an exaggeration. My 747 never gave me nearly as much trouble.
