Hi guys. I’ve made some decisions about this blog I’m going to create, and I just want to share.
Its name and tagline will be:
WebPublisher.xyz – Publishing on the Web using Hugo, TikiWiki, and ClassicPress
And it will reside in this address: www.webpublisher.xyz
Yes, as I’ve already been thinking about, the blog won’t be focused on ClassicPress alone, but it will be about these three non-competing web publishing platforms that I am/will personally use. (Hugo is a static site generator, and Tiki is a different kind of CMS.) And I’ve chosen the .XYZ domain because, besides the big promo (I’ve registered it for only $1.98!), each letter in the TLD can represent each of this platform.
By making the blog more than just about ClassicPress, I am freed from the responsibility of digging into the history and culture of WP and CP. Instead, I can start from where the CMS is right now, and with only brief references to the past. Furthermore, I am also freed from the expectation that my blog should be using the CMS itself. Because I only aim to present information with the blog (I don’t expect to build a community around it), I thought that it would be best if I keep it as simple as possible (and as low cost as possible) as a static website, not a dynamic one. Yes, for its platform the blog won’t be using ClassicPress, but Hugo.
Anyway, registering the domain and creating an empty site for it in my webhost are only the first steps. There’s still a lot of planning and studying to do, and I still have to create the blog itself, and so it would still be a while (perhaps several weeks) before I write my first blog post.
