You know — I knew it had been a long time, but…
WordPress was (I think) an invite-only service at the time. I raved about it at the time, railed against the problems Blogger had and never fixed and my even worse experience with other platforms — and everyone I knew poo-poo’d me. Now, who’s at the top of the heap in blogging platforms?
I think I’ve had about 5 iterations of this site and probably 20 other sites with poorly-conceived aspirations, NaNoWriMo attempts, suffering from weird stalker-like followers (and I’m a guy, so I can only imagine what women have to put up with), or just wanting to burn it all down in a fit of pique. I have those kinds of fits, especially when I’m feeling pointedly inadequate as a writer — in fact, I was just talked down from such an episode recently.
Thanks for all of you, currently present and those who visited in the past. It’s been an awesome 15 years as a wordpresser. I can’t imagine using any other platform.
