My WordPress Hobby

I imagine that most “normal” people have hobbies such as fishing, gardening, even watching TV or just reading. I even looked up on the internet to learn that, according to Harris Interactive, the most popular hobbies are
Reading (26%)
TV Watching (15%)
Spending time with family/kids (11%)
Fishing (8%)
Gardening (8%)
Playing team sports (7%)
Going to movies (6%)
Swimming (5%)
Golf (5%) . . . (and many more)

It looks like about 4% of the American population shares my affliction of the curse hobby of “Computer Activities.” I am just curious how many people out there would rather tweak the source code of a wordpress theme, develop php scripts to add “flare” to my blog, or even repair a damaged SQL database table, than to do any of those things on the above list. Of course, there are times that family time outranks computer time. And, at least as often, I’d probably rather be golfing (but who can afford that).

At any rate, this blog entry serves the primary purpose of being a guinea pig for a couple of new things I am developing. You may not see any change at first, since I am on the steep part of the learning curve, right now. But just you wait…
