For quite some time I was going to start a web project which was supposed to help me reach the following goals:
- improve English skills;
- improve web programming skills;
- provide an option to show individual photos I like both of music (from DOWNTOWNMUSIC.NET) and no music matter (from what now became SONICBEET.COM // photo gallery);
- occasionally write about topics which do not fit my personal and music blogs in Russian;
- host easy to install and maintain small independent web sites for myself and friends.
That project was obviously a blog/site management system with flexible and customizable features.
It took me a year of struggle with myself about what, how and – the most important – when am I going to create that thing, but finally I gave up. Instead of pushing it even farther back, first I built SONICBEET.COM // photo gallery and processed and uploaded to it images from the last six months, and now I am starting this blog using WordPress engine. In the near future I will try to post at least every once in a while, starting with a few photos and the list of top 20 CDs from last year. Then we will see…
