Head is spinning, swimming in what must be the thick waters of problem solving and acquired understanding. This site has been (nearly freely) run on WordPress.com for about three years now, but my next project is WordPress.org. Which involves configuring PHP files, cozying up with FTP, creating ten billion username/password combinations, and on and on.

I’m not quite stuck yet, and I’m leaving it at that after using about 90% of my possible mental exertion nonstop for the last three hours. Abundant little victories, the proverbial “a-ha!” moments coming only after jumping between windows, Googling around, and just plain’ol playin’ around.

And if it all comes mostly together by the end of the week… I’ll be one smug guy. Building a website from a template (no shame – I buy template clothing that I fill with my own content [me], right?), integrating social media, analytics & webmaster tools, building out the framework for an effective, SEO-intensive blog, buying domains and hosting plans, redirecting email records…

I wanted to learn, so I must do.
