Just underway, this little site is barely anything.
It is, though, more than nothing.

So far, I have:

  • reserved a domain name
  • set up hosting
  • installed WordPress
  • installed Divi
  • made a super basic home page
  • made a Regular Coffee page
  • made a blog page
  • published a few posts
  • enabled comments and received two
  • plugged in Google Analytics
  • signed up for Substack
  • made a page for newsletter signup
  • added a Substack button to the newsletter page
  • added the plugin Yoast SEO
  • figured out how to have Yoast push text/image metadata to Slack, Messages, search results, etc.
  • confirmed the site is automatically getting backed up by the site host.

That’s it.
I’ll keep at it, and hopefully I can recruit other Regulars to start their own things.

Old adages apply:

  • Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.
  • If you aren’t embarrassed on launch day, you waited too long.
  • Get off this. Get on with it. If you wanna change the world. Shut your mouth and start this minute.
