Quietly Contemplating All Things WordPress

Hello world, indeed. Is this yet another “Hello World” page? You bet your ass it is.

I honestly can’t tell you how many times I’ve spun up a WordPress blog site with the fanciful expectation that it would somehow change my life, only to wind up staring down that default introductory post headline that reads simply, “Hello world!” and wondering what the hell I was going to say.

And here I am again.

I hope this time is different, as this is my first stab at a WordPress site that I built from the ground up. Yeah, there’s not really much to it. At least not at the time of this inaugural post. The point is that instead of picking through countless themes until I found one that I liked, I coded it myself. It may not be much to look at it, but I’m quite proud of it. Anyway, I’m new at WordPress development, and I am sure that as I learn more tips and tricks, I’ll constantly be making tweaks.

In fact, at this very moment, I’m editing it long after I initially wrote it in an attempt to understand more how to effect a post’s SEO. One recommendation was to make sure I use my keyphrase more often, so here I go. This is yet another hello world page. Hey! That improved my score a bit. Not bad. Anyway, the content, as well as the look and feel of the site is sure to evolve with my experience.

So there’s that.

As for what I hope to accomplish with this site…well, I’d recommend skimming over my home page. At the time of this writing, that’s were I explain my intent. If you’d like to know a bit about why I’m finally getting to know the ins and outs of WordPress, try my about page.

I suppose I’ll wrap up this post and start working on figuring out what comes next. Wish me luck.
