My first real blog entry, and it’s feeding my first item for the “essays” blog – so I’m initializing some “elements of style”. It’s turning out to be more effort than my normal monthly status report process, but it’s “investment work”; as the scope of the site/blog increases, it will stay maintainable, consistent, and the manageable.
It’s also the first “test” of the whole blog dev/test/prod cycle for me – and, I’m working out the CSS bugs in my blogger implementation. Finally, I’m furiously trying to anticipate future projects for the site, projects that will help me manage and present the content better – so, many notes in many to-do lists.
It’s also a terrific example of how work can be like netted fractals; you start on one thing, but a line item of detail in one project expands to two hours in a related project, a level of detail below what you originally planned to tackle.
