Musings re: site architecture, direction, rss feeds and idolising

I am torn between getting wordpress.org going on this site and keeping it raw, the way it is right now (at the time of writing). Admittedly, I’m scared. I need some chocolate mousse to think about this… *goes off to get chocolate mousse from fridge*. It would be nice to have a nice looking website, but I like doing things for myself, the hard way. My stubborness really shows itself sometimes.

Ummm so yeah, should I or shouldn’t I? Delve into wordpress, or just push-button-publishing in general, OR keep learning the hardway very very gradually? I’m torn. aargH!! Either way, I’m going to be learning so it’s not all bad if I go the wordpress way. Also, another option is whether or not to integrate wordpress into one section of my site (e.g. this page) or let it take over the whole thing and get all the info arch tied up seamlessly.

I used to be fully in awe of Jessamyn’s site over at librarian.net, but Kathryn Greenhill’s librariansmatter.com is coming up fast. It’s good to be able to aspire to something and model yourself or your ‘thing’ on it. That said, don’t idolise. Not good. How old is Barbie again?? Bet she’s been smoking in secret all along and that she’s going to need a blood transfusion or a kidney or new liver or something soon.

But seriously, I need to get wordpress going and an RSS feed so people actually KNOW what I’m writing about. I think I know my answer. “Just do it” (Nike).
