I have started blogging in 2002 when few people knew what blogging was… Probably, I could have become a famous blogger by now, if:
- that blog wasn’t in Hungarian but English
- I wasn’t too lazy to blog daily
- I was motivated enough to write about everything that interests me and, supposedly, a larger audience
Unfortunately, all of the above statements are true. Which means I did not become a “famous blogger” but I got some fame as a WordPress guru1 — and the “unforgiving” mod in the WP Support forums.
During the past years I have started several blogs but posted only sporadically. Among them the most popular was the “blogtest”, a subfolder attached to my first domain and, which was created in a hurry to show off my very first WordPress theme, the Dark Maple, released in March 2005. When people started to link to it, I was afraid to move or change the name and its location… (Perhaps, at that time I didn’t know anything about redirecting URLs.) When I started to publish more and more articles describing my growing experience with the WordPress blogging tool, the blog became a kind of popular resource for tutorials. Most of the time these guides were documenting small tweaks I made while using WP for different projects, and I was happy to share my discoveries with all my fellow bloggers.
My other blog was also started in 2005 but I never had enough energy to keep it up with its goal: my take on the Canadian life in the middle of the Prairies2. Now it is “incorporated” in this one single blog, and my intention is to blog about those issues, too.
Finally, I didn’t move here my pet project blog about cross-cultural communication because that is a targeting a very niche audience and I want to keep it that way.
For now (May 2008) I have merged the old WordPress tips blog with my neglected Prairie Gazette, and also added a new, more personal section about myself, my thoughts, our travels — all at this new location of
http://moshublog.com. I plan to blog regularily at this new location and I also plan to document the transition and the reasons for doing it in this way.
