How do you start up a blog? I've been mulling over what to put on my first blog posting for quite a while now. My first draft rambled on and on about me, but I don't think that would make that interesting reading. So, I will spare you the details, except to mention the fact that I am working for Kingdom Faith Church in Horsham, England, rebuilding the website. Of my education, including as it did such wonderful places as Selwyn College, Cambridge, where I studied Natural Sciences (physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, no less!) I will, following this policy of not wishing to bore you, say absolutely nothing.

This blog may or may not stay in the same place indefinitely. I've written my own blogging engine which I've got running on my laptop, but I haven't yet taken the plunge and bought some web space to host it, so you're just going to have to make do with Blogger for the time being. This is a less than satisfactory solution, because it doesn't do everything I want it to the way I want it to do it. No categories, for instance, some of which I would like to password protect so that they are only accessible to family, friends, or colleagues. And some control over how I moderate comments and mitigate the menace of comment spam. But that will come sooner or later. So just how permanent the permalinks on this site will be remains to be seen. One thing will stay the same, however, and that is my domain name. Stick to using https://jamesmckay.net/ and you'll be fine.

Okay, that's my first blog entry over and done with. Hopefully the others will be more interesting than this...
