I've started a new blog just for my LEGO®-related posts. You can find it at www.brickpile.com. I post new entries there at least once a week, which is a lot more often than I ever did here.
Why so much more often? It's just that much easier to post there because it's built using Wordpress, a powerful and popular blog program. It's written in PHP with a MySQL back-end, unlike this blog which uses Blosxom, which is written in Perl and stores entries directly in the filesystem. The advantage to using Wordpress is that it has a nice Web-based editor, so I can just click the "Admin" button to log into the administration screen, type the entry in, and be done with it. Using Blosxom, I have to actually log in to a Linux server and edit the file in the filesystem. Plus, Wordpress offers automatic support for things like Technorati tags (using a plugin) and a much more stable comments/trackbacks mechanism.
Soon I will be relocating all the LEGO-related content from this site over to Brickpile (and setting up HTTP redirects so any outside links or bookmarks will still take you to the right entries). I also plan to relaunch this site using Wordpress as well. When that's done I should be posting non-LEGO content more often too.
If you can't get enough Ward action there are some other blogs you should visit. My wife Holly has two blogs: a personal one, and one where she teaches how to blog. We also have a joint blog that we both post to.
