Yesterday was the 4th Anniversary of this blog. Who’d a thunk? When I first created this blog, the fun for me was figuring out how to run WordPress on my own server. I really didn’t have anything profound to say, but somehow I’ve managed to post consistently for 5 years. Happy Anniversary to me!

Here’s a “word cloud” of some of the most frequently used words in this blog. The more often the word appears, greater the prominence in the cloud.



After some research and a bit of a learning curve, here it is, our first self-hosted blog powered by WordPress. The fun for me was learning a bit about PHP, MYSQL and figuring out where the database was located on my server and how to use it. Now that the program is up and running, I need to think of something to say;-) I’ll have to get Rich to contribute, as he always has something to say!
