Two years ago today I started blogging with a piece of software called b2. I started mainly to keep a note of the developments I would be making on Orion (my final year project for college) and also to keep a note of events in my life. It’s covered a lot of topics in the intervening years and its been valuable to look back and see what’s happened to me. I was shocked recently at how few entries I had made and so have resolved to keep more up to date and I seem to be doing that so far.
On the technical end of things, the software which runs the blog changed in December 2003 from b2 to WordPress and the changeover couldn’t have gone smoother. WordPress continues to be developed by a dedicated team of programmers lead by Matt and Ryan. Incidentally, I was experimenting with the upcoming 1.5 release which has now gone into beta on the weekend. It looks great and now adds the facility to add “Pages” which lie outside of the blog structure but are still editable. There have been a lot of changes but I’ve decided to wait until a stable release is available before upgrading. Anyway, here’s to another few years on the blogging train. 😉
