I began adding content to the site. I’ll be working on a master to do list for all site readiness functions. My plan at this point is to work on the AI3 site daily, work out an acceptable time-of-day/effort routine, and get all baseline functionality and content in place prior to an "official" release.
My hope is that the site can go "live" in the next 2-3 weeks.
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
