My Blog Is Live!

That’s right! After testing out a few different personal publishing/content management systems, we finally settled on WordPress, and made all the required modifications and additions necessary to make it work the way we wanted. Although WordPress didn’t have the power to do everything we wanted “out of the box”, it is so well supported by a vast array of plug-ins that it seems possible to make it do just about anything you might want!

The biggest difficulty has been making it absolutely secure against hackers and spammers, while not inconveniencing our users in any way. My webmaster Lee has put a lot of work into this, and he is confident he has achieved this goal—you won’t need to solve any captchas or anything like that.

We haven’t put too much work into the design yet—it is based on the very clean, elegant and functional Tarski theme, with only minor modifications. This is because we are intending to incorporate various parts of my main site (most importantly the FAQ) into this blog, so we will be redesigning both sites at the same time. We thought we’d better just get this blog up first!

One more thing: because we sadly live in a world where a web site is restricted simply because it contains nudity, in order to reach as wide an audience as possible, we have made the difficult decision to keep this blog strictly non-nude for now. Of course, for those who wish to see that side of my work, you can always go to my main site any time you want!

I’m posting this comment to demonstrate one of the special features of my blog: registered users can upload their own avatar, for that personal touch. And if you don’t upload your own avatar but have a gravatar, that will be displayed instead. I want this blog to be a fully fledged replacement for what I think are the best features of MySpace, so if you want to be my friend, register here! You can link back to any web page you want, and people will go there when they click on your username or avatar.

If there’s any other features you’d like us to add, please let us know. If there’s a WordPress plug-in available for it (or it won’t be too difficult to implement a custom solution), we’ll look into putting it up!

Hi Sachiko!

Just got in and registered. I love what you and Lee did with with this site. It’s very user friendly an not overbearing like others. For the moment I don’t know what else to plug-in, so far it’s just fine the way it easy, simple and user friendly.

Sorry for being a dull poster, just got back from checking onboard my new ship and not much to report there except I’ll be home for a few more days ’till it goes back to New Jersey to get loaded out for deployment. Hopefully my posts will get better in time.

Sachiko,
I’m glad to see you got this site up and running. I know you had a lot of frustrations with the other site. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more from you on here. I’ll also be waiting to see the changes to your main site. It will be nice to see it active again.
Tim
