Let&rsquo;s take a brief inventory list here on this site. First, we have an easy to use CMS - WordPress, all set up and ready to rock as of two months ago. Check. Next, we have a killer template, courtesy of Mr. Darius Wey, finished more than a month ago. Check. My matching photo gallery template is also completed, as of two weeks ago. Check. So what was left? Nothing - yet somehow I was obsessing over the smallest details the way I do with a Thoughts Media site. Then I was reminded of a simple truth a few days ago: the entire reason I&rsquo;m launching this personal blog is to give myself a no-pressure, talk-about-whatever-I-want place that has no connection to my &ldquo;real&rdquo; job. So what the hell was I waiting for exactly? And here we go - launched!&quot;</em> <br /><br />I've decided to launch a personal blog (with an awesome template - go Darius!), and all the reasons why <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jasondunn.com/welcome-to-my-personal-blog-28">are in my first post</a>. It's more of a personal project than anything else, but if you enjoy my ranting here you may enjoy the blog. It also is the home to some <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jasondunn.com/archive/velo/index2.htm">really</a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jasondunn.com/archive/windowsce/index2.html">old</a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jasondunn.com/archive/fraud/index2.htm">projects</a> that are entertaining to look at in retrospect. I also wanted to let you know about <a target="_blank" href="http://www.ispnmedia.com/2006/10/25/side-salad-episode-3-jason-dunn">a podcast I did with Vincent Ferrari</a> as part of his &quot;Side Salad&quot; podcast. It has nothing to do with vegetables (although I do say &quot;you know&quot; a lot, so seemingly I may have some form of brain damage) and everything to do with Thoughts Media, the sites I run with the great volunteers that help me, and some good discussion on all sorts of tech topics. I enjoy being a guest on podcasts, because it's a lot easier than doing one myself where I have to think up a lot of great questions to answer. ;-) And that concludes the Jason Dunn Show...back to your regular programming.
