I'm not the sort of person who jumps on every new bandwagon that comes along. No, I wait for them to pass me by and then run like mad to catch up. Many other technical writers started blogging long before I did, I was a relatively late arrival on the Twitter scene.
This week I have started to catch up with the blogging phenomenon known as WordPress. I was originally a bit put off by the need to set up a database on my website, but my hosting provider Names.co.uk, made that bit really easy.
Installing WordPress itself was also very easy, though I did have a good friend standing by to help me out. It was certainly much less hassle than setting up Windows 7.
You can visit my new site at my regular web address, even though it is still very much a work in progress. If you're feeling sentimental, or if you're looking for material that I haven't ported over to the new site yet, you can still visit the old site. I have started posting blog articles on the new site, and in due course the Blockhead Blog itself will be incorporated in the new site.
