Although I've been posting some thoughts on my home page already, it was not yet what anyone would call a blog. Mostly, I was annoyed that I had to hand-edit the HTML. Of course, there was also no possibility to post comments, there were no permalinks, etc. This had to change.
I took a look at blosxom, but quickly decided that it wouldn't satisfy my needs. In particular, it used the modification date of its input files as the date of the blog entries. This is a nice idea in itself, but I want to be able to edit — update — my posts without worrying that they'll change dates.
Luckily, I found Simon Cozen's article on Bryar, and today I finally got it working. This is not to say it was that hard, just that I have been procrastinating. Of course, not everything went swimmingly, but that's for another day.
So here it is, my very own blog.
