Tassitus has been live since the beginning of December last year. Sounds like a long time, but it’s just one month. As I’ve stated before, I signed up just because I love the name … that was the initial reason and that’s still very valid.
After having written here, almost every day for one month, I have a better ‘feel’ for what I’m going to use it for and that’s basically two things: Like it is now … personal reflections, almost like an open diary and ‘web stuff’. By that, I mean anything new and shiny online, or apps ‘n stuff for the iPhone. People often talk about their ‘passions’ in life … well, that’s mine! I love the iPhone [in case anybody missed that LOL], and I doubt Apple has got anyone sucked in that badly, and quickly as I was!
For some reason, I find it incredibly exciting to read about, and try out, new apps and things like that, and I’ll test them here. The native WordPress app is good, but I find it cumbersome to change ID all the time.
Having said all that, I still think it will be more of personal thoughts! So, «why wouldn’t I just sign up for a free wordpress dot com blog and write there», you might wonder?! Well … two reasons:
I wanted the domain name
Could have gotten that in wordpress dot com too, paid $12 per year, and still wouldn’t have had the freedom of custom design, and that part is important to me — it’s my little hobby.
Secondly, there’s a thing about wordpress dot com that normally doesn’t matter at all to any normal blogger: As soon as you start to post there, you get followers. That’s what you want when you’re blogging, right?! Well .. not necessarily in this case. I love followers in my regular blog but some are almost like ‘spam followers’, they just sit there and I don’t know why. It doesn’t feel good to write about stuff that I’ve already written about here, and a bunch of people who I know nothing about, perhaps reads it. Most likely they don’t , but anyway.
So, by having, what’s called, a self-hosted blog, nobody’s likely to find it unless they search for «tassitus», and why would they do that?! 🙂
I’ve started projects like this many times before, but this time it’s more structured. As much as it is an ‘open diary’, it’s a test page for themes, fonts and colours!
