I got started reading several WordPress “getting started” manuals. What I like about WP is the community. I just started blogging and three persons are already following my blog without any promotion from my side. I welcome The Gaming Grad, Opinionated Man, and Tanner Hawryluk. I decided that it would be polite to follow them back, though I’m not sure I’ll have time to read all their posts. I still have to figure out the difference between following and subscription. I’m fine with checking the WP Reader daily, and getting e-mails about every new post would be unnecessary.

Yesterday, when I added the post to a developer blog, I noticed that WP allows you automatically share it on Twitter. When I registered asmolgam.com, I also signed for . Now they are connected. I’m not sure how effective twittering is for game marketing but let it be: I don’t have to feed it thrice a day. I suspect that nobody reads game-oriented blogs, or twitter, or fb (unless you published a blockbuster). I’m a bit reluctant to add asmolgam to Facebook. This guy’s design scares me.
The major achievement today is the transfer of What Color is This Monster? from its blogspot home to this site. I played briefly with WordPress and I’m impressed how better it is than blogspot for my goals. The heroes of the game (Lamper, Clocker, Stump-axer, Visitor, and Dragoner) now inhabit the top bar instead of the default picture with old books.
