Welcome to Geekdom!

If anyone had told me a few months ago that I would be spending my free time trying to figure out code – I would have laughed in their face. But now, that is exactly what I am doing. So how did that happen?

Simple.  I created my own domain and I need to know how it works.  If you already have a website I am sure you have all the bells and whistles and can track who is coming from where and how and how to get number of hits and SEO (search engine optimization, in case you were wondering).  I had it too in the other free website.  But now, it is like owning your own home versus staying in an apartment – I have the freedom to move things around the way I want – but I have to learn to do it – in another language – geek!

I figured that I could just get someone to do it for me, after all I want to spend more time doing the writing.  However in an effort to be a good communicator I need to know how things work behind the scenes.  Sure it takes a while, (it took me a while to figure out where the body tag was to put Google Analytics) but in this day and age if you own something, you have to know how it works.  Later on, you may decide to delegate the work to someone and that is okay.  So watch out for changes as I tweak this site.  Any and all suggestions are welcome.

So for all the geeks out there – I have total respect for you, as you manipulate code to make the screen look pretty. I totally agree with the tag line for Word Press – code is poetry!
