For those of you who have been wondering how time consuming it is to start a blog, I give you the following:
me: who do you use for hosting and layout?
Ilya: hosting is dreamhost
and layout is from woothemes
i have half an hour til my pork roast is done
me: think i can go live in that amount of time?

me: ok, so domain name
Ilya: find something decent
see if you can get a .com
Sent at 7:54 PM on Wednesday
Ilya: is it available?
me: i kno
Ilya: hard to read
thats what the last owner called the place
dude the name of your town and road are funny
i was thinking something like city slicker
Ilya: well yeah i meant having that in the title
me: its registered
Ilya: the site is going to be how to live in the country if you are a city slicker right?
or at least how im making it work
how to stop being one
people would understand what the site is about
from the title
me: good on ya

Ilya: let me see if i have one

Ilya: once you have everything… on the left panel… go down to goodies and one-click installs
then do advanced mode and install wordpress
Sent at 8:15 PM on Wednesday
me: that it?
Ilya: more or less
is it live yet?
i can’t see it
or does it take some time for them to set it up
Ilya: uncityslicker.com right?
Ilya: might take a bit
so you did the worpress install too right?

me: do i have to put anything on it, or does there have a wordpress placeholder
Ilya: it should have the default theme

Sent at 8:25 PM on Wednesday

the default image is oddly appropriate
