I thought it was about time for a new blog, as many people have been encouraging me to write. I decided to give WordPress a try, so I could learn some new skills while blogging.

I’m pretty good with computers. I was that kid who played with PowerPoint and Word as much as The Sims and Rollercoaster Tycoon. I’ve been able to pick up a lot of computer knowledge just by fooling around and using my prior knowledge. Sort of like how I can get the gist of Spanish by using my knowledge of English and French. I figured learning how to make my own website would be somewhat intuitive.

Well. Turns out WordPress is like me learning Russian. I have to learn a new alphabet before I even understand what’s going on.

Procrastination is pretty happy about that. Instead of writing blog posts, I have to research books and websites with make-your-own-website tutorials. I have to learn coding. I have to read and watch all those tutorials. And it all has to be perfect before I start my blog. 

I have bad news for Procrastination. I’m going to write first, and learn the website business second. Done is better than perfect. As a result, my blog may be rather simple and sometimes messy, but I hope you’ll stick around as I write and learn.

With all that said, let’s dive in. Welcome to my new blog! I have no idea where I’ll end up, but it’s going to be a good adventure.
