Initial post

I am using WordPress because my Tumblr has become so much harder to use as a pure blogging platform over the past few months. Tumblr has been re-optimised for easy sharing and handling web-hosted pictures in particular has become nightmarish. Plus I want to understand how ‘social’ WordPress has become in response to the growth of social networks and things like Medium. It was a pleasant surprise to find that I had reserved my namespace on wordpress but I have no recollection of having done that.
