There just wasn’t a weblog that covered the local scene here in Healdsburg to my satisfaction, so I created one a few days ago. It’s called Healdsburgers.
It’s a WordPress blog, which is the first time that I’ve used that software; Backup Brain runs on Movable Type. I’ve been curious about WordPress for a long time, so I downloaded and installed it. It’s amazingly easy to use. I picked up a nice three-column theme, and the whole thing was up and running in just a few hours. Had I known what I was doing, it would have been even quicker.
I’ve recruited Dori and our friend and neighbor David Morgenstern to help out with the writing chores, and I hope that other members of the community will join us. Healdsburgers is likely to be of interest only to the locals, but please feel free to check it out and make any suggestions. And if you’re a WordPress maven, I’d love to hear about plugins that you think I just should not be willing to live without.
