Today is a bit of a geeky anniversary for me, which I would never had recognised had I not started trying to bring in old posts written on this day. Turns out that on 23 August 2004 I wrote my first piece using the WordPress CMS, while on 23 August 2006 I first published a piece of audio as a podcast. WordPress was not my first blogging engine. That honour goes to NucleusCMS, which seems to have more lives than a cat (not that I'm going back to it). And I did subsequently learn more about podcast feeds and how to get them into Apple’s podcast directory. It gives me some satisfaction to look back, not just on these posts, but on the many others I have updated over the past month or so, and not be utterly appalled by all of them.
