This thing is more opaque to me than DNS. I’m still waiting for the “A-HA!” moment. It’s easier to use day-to-day, but building the infrastructure is a royal pain in the ass and counterintuitive to boot. Yagah!

But hatred of platform changes is, I think, baked into the bloggish experience: after you get something working, you get used to it, no matter how horrendous it is. And then to swap it out for something else again? Swiping Hippolyta’s girdle looks easy by comparison.
And after just under a month on WordPress, I have yet to detect the presence of “A-HA!”
