Re: Blogging

You know, I had never even heard of "blog" or "blogging" before "Rathergate" (please, no political discussion here). I'm (besides a home grown Wyoming bumpkin now a living in Northern Arizona Bumpkinville") lost on this "blog" thing. I was pretty naive as a kid about sex, drugs, and well, I guess I had the drinking thing well figured out, and as a father at 19 maybe not so naive about sex (at the moment finishing up the last of the holiday Tom and Jerry batter), but how about an explanation, for a pushing retirement guy, on this "blogging thing. Any of you up to speed "bloggers" up to an explanation? You can email me privately if you may be embarrassed about answering this email from such a "hick". Is it kind of like what we are doing on this list or what? How does it work, and HOW DO I BLOG?

Wow, way too many quotes, parentheses, and commas. Hope Gail isn't reading this! Had dinner tonight with my wife (that was good) and two elderly women (I was the only male). I had to come home for some of the hard stuff. Water is boiling for another round.

Anyone out there doing a blog?

I just set one up (finally) on my server, and now I'm overwhelmed with the possibilities. I'm using WordPress (http://www.wordpress.org) on my Linux machine, and after getting some bugs ironed out it seems to be quite feature-ful and easy to administer.

I like the idea of having "full control" of my own server, etc., rather than hosting off someone else.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else is doing this, would like to share some ideas. Of course, I'm including a section for discussions related to Structural Engineering as well as all the other stuff.

See ya in the blogosphere.
