The blog has finally arrived!

After about two months, I have finally gotten around to finding some suitable blogging software and successfully installed it. I must say that I was impressed by the ease of installation, I expected it to be much harder and require a lot of manual text file editing.

As you have probably already realised, the software that I am using is WordPress. I chose WordPress for several reasons, including its price (free), popularity, simplicity and ease of use and set up and that it allows you to install it under your own server/domain.

Originally I was considering writing the software myself, however my PHP knowledge and general HTML knowledge is mediocre at best and I really don’t have the time to be fiddling around with the planning, debugging and beautifying of what would probably turn out to be a nasty looking blog that wouldn’t have all of the functionality of a common place blogging software.

So far I am very happy with the way WordPress is performing and hope to add some new content very soon.
