Getting Ready

The Western New York Archivists are meeting at SBU this Thursday for our annual fall gathering.  We share our experiences of the summer and I’ll be giving a quick workshop on setting up a WordPress blog.  This, of course, necessitates making sure that I remember how to do it, so I’m preparing a “help sheet” as I remind myself of the process.

Our earlier work with WordPress involved setting up pages that serve more as web sites than as blogs.  With the WNYA, the blogging capability is probably going to be the most useful aspect, so the emphasis is different that what we’ve focused on.

We’re always learning new processes down here.  WordPress turned out to be one of the most straightforward experiences we’ve had with new technologies and we’re happy to share it with the archives’ community.
