I have published 25 posts. And even better, there are now 57 comments! Thanks for sharing your wisdom and thoughts.

This site has evolved and changed just as I have, in the kind of things I am doing and interested in. Namely, as I have become more obsessed with WordPress, so it has been reflected here.
