Another Website Gets Set To Go Online

He knows enough to be dangerous, but not enough to know what he doesn’t know. He will enjoy this too.

I’m helping a friend mount a new website. I love this stuff. This is my fun.

My friend knows enough to be dangerous, but not enough to know what he doesn’t know. He will enjoy this process too. He writes about technology, so all I can think of is Rock Hudson’s 1964 movie, “Man’s Favorite Sport?”

“Roger Willoughby is considered to be a leading expert on sports fishing. He’s written books on the subject and is loved by his customers in the sporting goods department at Abercrombie and Fitch, where he works. There’s only one problem however: he’s never been fishing in his life. When the store owner enters him in a fishing contest, mayhem ensues. – IMDB review

OK–mayhem probably won’t ensue. We’re still in the ballpark.

Though he doesn’t want a blog I’ve convinced him to use WordPress as his CMS (content management system). He found a $70 template he liked with a magazine type look and signed on for a $4.50/month hosting plan at GoDaddy. He’s basically finished spending money!

What’s made things easier for me is he’s organized. I threw out a list of things he should plan for and… holy crap, he followed through.

Still to come, I’ve got to install WordPress and his template. Then he’s got to start feeding content to the beast, making decisions along the way on how he’ll tag and categorize the content.

You wonder why print and TV outlets fear the Internet? I’ll get him on-line and ready to compete for under $100. Getting people to his site–that’s the tougher part.

  1. $70 for a template?!?!?! Seriously? There are HUNDREDS, if not thousands of FREE templates out there. I don’t know why anyone would spend money for a template.

    But, with that said, go to or and you can be set-up with a blog for $0.

    Now, what’s the real reason the collective “we” in TV and print are scared of blogs?
