Welcome. Big Changes.

Making the switch to hosting and self-publishing.

I started this blog this year on Yahoo 360, thinking I would try posting at least once a day, not thinking that I’d actually do it. But it seemed to take off. Don’t know how long it’ll last, mind you, but it’s humming along.

At first I had the blog hidden. Big secret. Then I mentioned it in casual conversation, and Dawn was surprised and frankly not pleased that I had a blog and wasn’t letting her read it. I explained that nobody could read it. Oh, that was okay then.

But then I let her read it. And she didn’t hate me or think it sucked. She was quite nice about it. So that was a big confidence booster.

So then I went public with it, on Blogger. And Paul started reading too. And some other folks, family members sometimes, Gordon every so often. Random folks around the world, according to the stat meters that I hooked up, but not like regular die-hard readers or anything.

Mostly just Paul would add comments. A few flame wars with and between Paul and Rob, with my own nasty remarks sometimes added. But I hope that’s all over.

So in the last week or so I’ve fired up web hosting with GoDaddy for www.bohls.org, and I’ve been playing with moving the blog there. I had a rather disastrous attempt at trying to just publish the Blogger blog, ebohls.blogspot.com, there. So then I’ve downloaded WordPress, and I’ve been playing with that for a week or so.

And so here it is. My blog at Bohls.org. I’ll be trying to use WordPress as a sort of CMS as well. We’ll see how that goes.
