Here’s a little Tech Love.
Matt Mullenweg on KTEH TV talks about how WordPress is free for all. I just love wordpress and this video makes me love it even more.

I use WordPress and Blogspot for different blogs. I started with blogger but wanted a self-hosted blog so did my next blog on WordPress.
My mother, out of the blue, got Gullian Barret Syndrome. She is a 72-year-old woman who went from playing tennis 4 days a week to being in the hospital for over a month in excruciating pain that took weeks to diagnose. My sister was sending these very lengthy email updates every few days to all her friends. I had heard of blogs but did not really know what they were. I was wondering if this would be a good way to tell my mother’s story to a wide array of people. I know it is a rare disease but it seemed like everyone we told said they knew someone who had been diagnosed with this but they knew nothing of it. I love to write and figured I needed a way to channel my frustration in a productive way, so voila, I started a blog.
This process all started in December 2008.
I went to Dictionary.com to see what it had to say.
Definition of blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog.
Example: Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.
Then I found a site that teaches basic blogging for free then more advanced blogging for a fee. I would refer you to it but I just spent the last 15 min looking for it and it is no longer there. I only did the free part because I was itching to start. Patience is not my virtue.
