This is my very first post to this shinny new WordPress.com blog. After killing my self-hosted personal blog years ago, I’m ready to let Automattic do the heavy lifting for my personal blog and let me focus on creating content. I spend most of my WordPress time creating sites for friends’ businesses, and haven’t invested in my personal blog. Until now. It took me all of about 10 minutes to move my domain into WordPress.com, set up the DNS records for Google Apps (using their wizard), and get this first post published. If you’ve written WordPress.com off as something too limited for you to use, give it another shot! Happy blogging!
