Yeah, I know, I know. I’ve only just deleted the default Hello World blog post from my shiny new WordPress install, and now I’m writing one for myself.
It’s a bit like having a completely blank sheet of paper or a new notebook. You’re a bit scared of making the first marks on the page because, for the moment, that thing is perfect! Anything you write is going to take away that perfection.
But paper is there to be written on, so you’ve just got to go ahead and do it and get it over with. After you’ve already messed it up, the fear of putting something down goes away.
And that’s what this post is for – to get me past that difficult first post.
(And kudos to WordPress for including the Hello World post. When you think about it, it’s actually kind of genius.)
