After some days of delays doing my normal day job, I was able to return to getting the site ready.
I set up links for:
- XML (RSS feed)
- Site Meter
- Creative Commons
- W3C XHTML Validation (added later).
I will continue on getting this prep stuff done, but upcoming business travel may push out my desired site release a few days further.
Author’s Note: I actually decided to commit to a blog on April 27, 2005, and began recording soon thereafter my steps in doing so. Because of work demands and other delays, the actual site was not released until July 18, 2005. To give my ‘Prepare to Blog …’ postings a more contemporaneous feel, I arbitrarily changed posting dates on this series one month forward, which means some aspects of the actual blog were better developed than some of these earlier posts indicate. However, the sequence and the content remain unchanged. A re-factored complete guide will be posted at the conclusion of the ‘Prepare to Blog …’ series, targeted for release about August 18, 2005. mkb
