At last I am now an official blogger according to the results from Google.
define: blogger – “The author of a blog”.
Over at Fubra they like to encourage – or nag – all employees to write their own blog and be part of the ever increasing population of online bloggers.
Until now I have been putting off the process of setting up my own blog in the hope that one would just magically appear or allow me to create one with minimum effort.
Thanks to the wonders of Subversion and WordPress I was able to quickly and easily install a blog on my vserver that Fubra have kindly supplied.
It can’t really get much easier than running the following cmd to checkout from the WordPress repository:
svn co http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/branches/2.3/ .
All that was left was to come up with a quick and simple design to get away from the default template theme.
So there you have it, the kick start to my future in blogging.
Oh, and a quick thank you to my boss Paul for backing me into a corner and pressuring me into this whole blogging malarkey.

The nagging has finally paid off!
