Endgame

Finished, it’s finished, nearly finished, it must be nearly finished.

Finally, it is finished. For a few short moments at least that’s how it appears. Soon it becomes apparent that more is required than the stock “Hello World” post. It’s finished only in the sense that everything is finally in place to allow me run the blog.

It seems forever since I bought the server. That was the easy part. Next came the test deployment. That wasn’t too bad, either. After that the domain name was registered. Now, tonight, the blog – the real thing – is here.

All that took four weeks. A wild, erratic four weeks for both a baby blog and myself; two musicals, two competitions, innumerable rehearsals and a European Championships. It’s a wonder it didn’t take six.

WordPress’ (the free software behind this blog) appoints a default description reading “just another WordPress web-log”. Now to avoid becoming just that.

Grain upon grain, one by one, and one day, suddenly, there’s a heap, a little heap, the impossible heap.
