What we're dealing with here

Day 1: Register a domain name. Yay!

Day 4: Realize I need hosting to do anything. Look up hosting services, pick one. Point the domain thingy at the host thingy. Then forget about it completely.

Day 73: Oh yeah, don't I have a website?

Day 74: Play with various PhP blog packages. Decide I don't like any of them.

Day 91: Hey, didn't Google resurrect Blogger from the dotcom graveyard? I used to like them, until they were down to one employee and nothing worked.

Day 95: Try various combinations of ancient usernames and passwords from the hazy mists of my memory. Get one to work. What is this "beta" business? Grr.

Day 113: Point the blog thingy at the ftp thingy. Bang my head against templates all day. Back in my day, they didn't have that law saying you have to use "div" tags instead of tables for layout. But I'll be damned if I'm going to show myself as some kind of pre-bubble dinosaur. I'm hip to the new code. I'm down. I'll get this to work eventually. Now I just need to figure out what it is that I'm trying to with it in the first place. Attempt to do twelve ridiculous things at once. My personal site will be all things to all people! I will be the new The Google! Sketch a bazillion ridiculous ideas on a piece of paper until it's mostly ink. Since when did clean design get so complicated?

Day 114: Oh yeah, content. I should probably actually post something, huh? I hear that self-referentiality is clever.

Day 1263: Hey, I notice that I used to have some blog posts. Maybe I should do something with that. Forget this domain name business, let's just go ahead and trust Google for now.

It would be even more self-referential if I left a comment to my post!
