This is blogging

I’m a pretty technical guy, but setting up a personal blog was still much harder than I expected. This is what it was like:

  1. Order a printing press in the mail. Set it up in your front yard.
  2. Go to a farmyard and steal a tractor. Drive it home, then rip all the controls off. Weld them onto the printing press.
  3. Borrow a moving van. Wait until nightfall, then detach all the mailboxes from the houses on your street. Throw them in the van.
  4. Rent a flatbed trailer and a winch. Haul the printing press up onto the trailer and attach it to the moving van.
  5. Acquire a used houseboat. Knock down some of the rooms, then drive the van onto the boat.
  6. If the whole thing doesn’t sink, cast off and float around.
  7. Fire up the printing press and stamp out 50,000 copies of the first thing that pops into your head.
  8. Cram 1000 copies into each mailbox.
  9. Drive the van off the houseboat, into the water.
  10. Congratulations, you have just blogged.

That sums it up. Except it was even more complicated, time-consuming, and ridiculous than that. On the other hand, I am now having a good time. :)
