Trying to fly before I can walk
This is one of the dangers of blogging, I suppose: blog envy. MrsDOF sends out an email newsletter to about 50 people and there are mounting requests for her to get a blog of her own.
I ‘spoze I could just send her to Blogger but I just escaped from there myself and now face importing 250+ entries one at a time into my Expression Engine blog. Not a fate I’d wish on the Mrs, let alone the interminable anguish of posting on Blogger and waiting for several minutes only to receive an error message – sorry! Try again later!
So while I am wobbling along on training wheels under Expression Engine, I’m trying to set up a blog for MrsDOF to call her own. So far I’ve got it to produce a – blank page – when you type in “mrsdof.com” – hey, if you don’t count all the words and pictures and stuff, it’s practically finished! Stay tuned.
Update, 20 January ‘05: Looks like I’d made an error on pointing the domain. It boils down to my misunderstanding of how EE works. Now that that’s cleared up (at least on that little point) the domain does resolve to mrsDOF’s home page so I can begin making the blog work and look pretty.
I’ll write later about the whole folder/path/domain-pointing thing in EE. It usually works this way – concept first, then procedure.
