Finally. I actually set this thing up.
I'd rather not make a big mission statement about what I'm gonna put here but it's very likely it will be much more on professional topics than personal.
As I don't really follow more than a handful of blogs I consider myself a newbie blogger. As such, years of procrastination preceded setting this thing up until I finally got to the point where I just chose a product, installed it and got going. (Not really the whole truth. I spent a fair amount of time looking at plugins for posting source code in blog entries.)
Anyway, the blogging software is installed and the blog is public.
Better get started, instead of wasting valuable writing time figuring out the details of how this WordPress stuff really works and spending way to much time fiddling with the features.
