This email is really just a test. As I mentioned the other day, I have switched the blog over to Drupal, which I really like. One of the great things is that I can now blog from my email. That means that I don't need to log into Drupal in order to blog. I'm not 100% sure how this will benefit me since ultimately, I need an internet connection to email, which means that I should also have access to Drupal.
Nevertheless, it's quite cool that I can do such things, and hopefully, that means that I will be able to blog more frequently. I know that I have said this before, and perhaps I might mean it this time.
We shall see.
I really like WordPress. I think it's great blogging software. However, I have discovered Drupal, and I've really fallen in love with it. It's not an easy program for someone like me who has limited knowledge of computer stuff. But I think that's what makes it so much fun for me. I like the challenge of trying to figure it all out.
There are several other benefits to Drupal over WordPress, and I decided to switch the site over. It took longer than I anticipated because I moved everything by hand. Drupal has a module (a plug-in for the WordPress fans out there) that will move data from WordPress to Drupal, but I felt that I really wanted to do it by hand to ensure that I was able to mitigate as many issues as possible. As I mentioned, I'm no expert, so there may well be a bunch on the site. Please, PLEASE, let me know if you see any.
Right now, the biggest one is that I can't get the comment, "The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly," to appear under the email field in the comments section. If you know how to do it, please let me know.
Also, while I was changing the platform I'm running the blog on, I figured it was time to change the template as well. Again, if there are any issues with the design, please let me know that as well.
After being in my now old position for a whopping 4½ months, the big boss called me into his office and offered me a job on the other side of the office. Now, I was very excited to get my now old position; however, I feel very strongly that when the big boss offers you an opportunity, it's bad form to turn it down.
So, as of today, I am now a public affairs officer. That's pretty darn cool, but I'm pretty scared that I have them all fooled and they're going to realize that I don't know shit about what I'm doing. Oh, well. At least it will be an adventure.
The nice thing about adding the WordPress app to my Blackberry (again) is that I can now post blog entries from anywhere.
Case in point--I'm currently on Merritt Island in central Florida. I am sitting in a sports bar, being served by a young, mildly attractive waitress who is trying too hard to be flirty in the hopes of receiving a better tip (alas, so far, it's not working). I am writing this post as I sit in the booth sipping my water with lemon. This is very cool for all (2) of my faithful readers.
Yet, I feel that I should be waiting for the other foot to fall. I mean, certainly there must be a "but" to this, a downside. Perhaps it's that even with this great technology, I am sure that this will be a short-lived endeavor, and I will only post regularly for the brief moment that this ability to blog anywhere is novel.
Oh, well. We shall see. Stay tuned!
