My First WordPress Post!

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

With some amount of guilt for stepping away from Blogger (SugarHiccup~Hiccup) after 5 years of perfectly wonderful hosting and service, I am mixed with excitement and worry over installing and hosting my own blog using WordPress.  I had posted a quick poll to my Twitter friends asking if this was a good idea and the response was unanimous that I should dive into hosting my own blog using WordPress.

So… here it is.

I installed and played with many many themes and this is the one I thought was the lightest, most-colorful, easiest to manipulate, and happiest, while also being able to accommodate the various facets I wanted to funnel into a blog.

I LOVE the tabs that allow for me to share some of the work being done at TruthLoveEnergy and allows for more interactivity using TokBox for Vchatting and Vmail.  I encourage all of my readers to explore Seesmic and 12Seconds.TV  The time for video conversation and communication has definitely come.

I’m going to post a few additional things in here just to test the functionality and visuals, so please play with them and see if they play okay.

Oh, and PLEASE… please leave a comment, either using Disqus as your profile or post a video using the Seesmic feature you will find there!  Or Both!  Just please let me know you were here and what you think!

  1. Awww, this was pretty easy to install and build; it's the tweaking that takes forever (and continues). Thanks, Ryan! I hope you bookmarked me! xoxo

  2. Always interesting to see what new tech com frontiers you're out there testing! Feedback from France: audio & video test embeds were good, but test live video froze after your voice went all hi & squeeky (“…hope ur enjoying it!”). It kept going with the frozen image for a few seconds.

  3. LOL! Hi Leslie!

    Actually, the video did end after that, but the playback, for some reason, continues… the point where it “froze” is actually where I stopped recording. Don't know why it did that, but more tests on the way! I saw other people's sites using it and it was just the opposite: it started fading out on them before they were done speaking! Hmmm… may have to scrap that plugin.

    Thanks for checking this out, Leslie!
