As I mentioned before, I've moved over to my own copy of WordPress for the back end for my blog. This not only give me more control over the software, but make sure that the content is in my possession as well. (Okay, so it's really sitting on someone else's server, but you get the point.) I'm going to keep some notes about WordPress in the blog itself as a reference and in case anyone else is interested. The install is very simple. Just upload and unpack the individual files and then create an empty database that WordPress can connect to. This should be really simple to do in just about any hosting package. So far, I'm liking WordPress. Stay tuned for updates.
