May 27 – 2: WordPress

I am one of those people who has always loved to learn. And I’m really excited to learn how to use WordPress. It’s something I’ve been wanting to try since I took a class on using technology in the classroom when I was in grad school. In that class, we set up blogs using Blogger, but we were also briefly introduced to WordPress, and I could see that it was a much stronger tool.

It’s going to be a bit of an adventure, and probably a slow process. I like to jump in to ideas, but I’m not always that dedicated to putting the time and energy into following through on them. Eventually, I’d like to design my own WordPress theme that suits this blog and my style. But it make take a while for me to get there.

Right now, I’ve got two priorities with this blog. The first is to make it a routine to post a list of three good things every day. Some days (like today), I may write several paragraphs about each thing. Some days they may just be links with a brief description. But I’m going to try really hard to post them every day.

Learning WordPress is the second priority. I am really looking forward to it – which is why it’s one of my things for today – but realistically, it’s going to take me a while to get it figured out. So, for anyone who may be reading this from the beginning, be patient with me! I swear I have plans to make this site prettier and more functional and to eventually get my own domain! But it may take me a while to get it actually developed all the way and ready to roll out, and I wanted to start blogging now. So stick with me – it will only get better! Really!
