In the interest of blogging professionally, I’ve started a blog for my business, Hand Built. My blog’s description is "Perfect is the enemy of good enough", because I’ve been meaning to write about work-related topics for a while and sometimes you just need to ?.

It was many painful steps to start this WordPress blog. Although I wanted to self-host, most managed WordPress hosts charge an arm and a leg (each month!) to use SSL. Hopefully, this changes in the future.

Categories are an annoying feature of WordPress, particularly because I’m forced to have a default category. Why do blogs need categories? What’s the difference between a category and a tag?

For now, because I’m OCD about feelings of completion, I’ve changed my default category to "Categorized".

I hope you enjoy my new blog.

Hand Built is Daniel Bachhuber, an effective developer with technology leadership you can trust.

How can I help?

Hit me at [email protected] with a short note about what you'd like to do.

My roots are WordPress and publishing, and I love pretty much everything related to web development (architecture, performance, security, etc.). When not working with clients, I also maintain WP-CLI (WordPress' command line interface) and other open source projects.
