16 Jan 2004 I stopped using my own html and started using WordPress.
Some stats so I remember:
Most commented: USA-WTF#3 with 89 comments.
Most viewed: Links with 59165 views. (WHY ? Really, why ?)
Highest commenter: Me, but really is the unique Root (where the hell is he ?)
Comments – what’s the accepted “etiquette” about commenting on your own blog ? I’ve seen some blogs where the blog owner hardly comments at all (which seems odd because it implies they think their word is final in all things and only the serfs and minions may chatter quietly about it. Very regal !) and other blogs – like here – where comments flow freely. I figure it’s okay to comment because – certainly inside WP – there is a tab called ‘Discussion’ and you can’t Discuss without actually taking part can you ? And if you DO think there is nothing else to say, close the comments. And if your word IS final, write a book. Or lead a coup. Or just shut up because it would be damn boring listening to. (Says me who has – apart from one small event in 1978 never been wrong 😉 )
Anyway …. what did I say 2 years ago ?
Why use WordPress ?
Not just that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s incredibly easy to install (all through the browser), but the interface, the CSS and the whole shebang when put together are pretty damn close to what I wanted. I did not want the tool to get Ã¢â‚¬Ëœin my wayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, and so far this does not.
Is that still true ?
……. yes and no. Or no and yes actually. I still think 1.2.2 was the best version for me but this – 1.5.2 – is okay and still does “exactly what it says on the tin”.
