I wanted to take a brief moment and make a new post. I haven’t posted in a while, because I’ve been setting up this blog and trying to mold it into something that I was comfortable with. I’m at a point that I am happy with its current version, but I am just lacking a logo at this point. That will be coming soon. Setting up my own site, installing wordpress (manually), finding and editing themes, installing a comment system,working with plugins; essentially creating the initial building blocks of my personal site has been a great, but trying experience. It’s a useful skill to have and it is something I want to have more experience with.
I did this during my spare time when I was laid off and solely as a hobby. Currently, I am employed, but still on a contract basis, however, this project has taken a slight back seat while I re-adjusted to the working life. I didn’t want to get burned out with doing it, or trying to do it quickly, which is why I went slowly. As of now, I am going to move forward with this site and start the process of leaving my other site that was hosted at wordpress.com.
Lastly, I am going to put an end to the “spouting” series. I’ll just stick to regular post titles. Initially, my thought process was to make the “spouting” series a slight deviation of my blog post, although they served the same purpose. The distinction is negligible and thus, unnecessary. It’s quite possible I may find a better blog-post distinction in the future, but for now, I’m just going to take it one step at a time.
I’m enjoying what this is shaping into and I can’t wait to see how it evolves. I implore anyone that has any hobby or knowledge in anything, even if they do not consider it worth sharing, to give it a shot. I’ve met a lot of interesting people through my blog and the small amount of promotion that I’ve done with it, and you never know how many others may share your interest if you do not take that first step forward and put yourself out there.
Thanks for reading and when my logo is complete, I’ll be sending updates to everyone and will continue running without condition with my blogging!
