Vorlon Whispers’ two year blogversary came and went without notice. In looking back I see I started this silly enterprise on April 9, 2003.

At first I just called it Ted’s blog. I also didn’t really have any blogging software. I already had the web site tedkarol.com. I was mainly posting photos to it and anything else I was interested in.

I created my own blogging template from Microsoft FrontPage. It wasn’t too bad, but each month I had to do some maintenance.

I think it was some about October of 2003 that I moved to Movable Type (MT).

In some ways I miss Microsoft FrontPage. It does a lot of formatting a lot easier than the blogging software. Using Movable Type has forced me to learn some html – which I try to avoid like the plague.

I like MT, but blogging is still a pretty crude endeavor. I don’t’ see why I should be able to compose my entry in Microsoft Word to my satisfaction and then just click a button and have it posted to my blog. It should be that easy, but it’s not.
