Hopefully not to sound too much like one of those Star Trek geeks, but the venerable Doctor McCoy would often spout off in a pique of fury when confronted with an unfamiliar task, saying something like:
“I’m a doctor, not an engineer, or bridge builder, or well, you get the idea.”
So in the words of the sadly deceased Doctor, I would like to say:
“I’m an artist, not a web developer!”
And it is in that spirit that I’m embarking on my new blog, The Lab, by jumping headfirst into the WordPress pool. It’s not exactly a sink or swim proposition. WordPress seems suspiciously friendly and easy to use. And yet as I come up for air after the initial plunge to the bottom and start floating around, bobbing up and down through an endless tide of windows, options, plug-ins and googles, inevitably things will float past that I don’t like and will want to fix or change. So my dear readers, that is my metaphorical attempt at telling all of you that The Lab is a work in progress.
