Chris Messina meets WordPress

It’s somehow fitting that my first personal public blog post would not only be made using WordPress software, but would also be about WordPress!

Indeed, I’ve taken the WordPress plunge, which is significant not just because I’ve been meaning to get a blog going for ages, but because I work for a competitor… of sorts.

I do hope though, as I join the community of bloggers, it will become clear both why I’m using WordPress and why I don’t really think that it’s a problem that I’m not using CivicSpace for my personal blog. In fact, I think that CivicSpace and Drupal are a little too powerful for this kind of thing, so I’m following my own advice by steering clear of the 800 pound gorilla when all I need is a spunky monkey.

…or something like that.
