Welcome to my brand spanking new blog!….oooh shiny! and my first post.
I am less than two weeks away from leaving my life in Australia and traveling abroad overseas on a working holiday to the UK. This blog will be the place to be to see what mischief I have been up to. I am quite excited & a tad nervous whats coming my way, but I pumped and ready to go!
One of the things on my to-do list before I headed off was to choose which blog to blog on. I did alot of research into which blogging platform would best to implement, naturally my first choice was something ASP.NET based, but I was quite disappointed what was on offer. I decided to broaden my search and it came down to two blogging systems; WordPress or MoveableType. I got both systems up and running, but WordPress just seem to have a larger and more active community. In the short about of time I have been using WordPress I have been impressed with some of the features & plug-ins available.
Unfortunelty I ran out of time to implement all the bells & whistle that I was after, but have just kept it simple to start with!
