“Where Oh Where Would I Be … Without WordPress dot org?”

So Far … What A Program 🙂 Sure Glad I Chose WordPress . ORG When I had Something To Share
I have great appreciation for people or organizations that actually continually stay on top of things that are important to themselves and others. This was part of a message that was on my dashboard page when I longed to my site.

WordPress 4.7 has been downloaded over 10 million times since its release on December 6, 2016 and we are pleased to announce the immediate availability of WordPress 4.7.1. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.
Attention to security seems evermore valuable and any and all effort expended to improve the quality level of security is experienced by all concerned. A Big Thank You is Deserved by every single person involved in the ongoing process of attempted security of sites and their content.
So, with a background in computers going back to 1983 and with previous ownership of a small software company, that was trying to bring useful programs to computer owners, in the days prior to easy access to the internet that we have today, the world of computer security and true freedom of information has always been an “issue”, as they today. They say we live in an information revolution, so “issues” with information and it’s security are an area of activity by many. Some good and some evil and it most likely always will be.
With a happy feeling for the upcoming 1 yr. anniversary of this website MichaelThought Magazine™ it’s with gratitude and Thanks to each and every person on planet Earth that allows this great tool, WordPress . ORG to continue on one day at a time, along with the rest of us. Of course without the one person on Earth who is in the Top 10 of my “Good Guys List” in USA and it is my understanding from reading, that man says “Howdy” at the top right corner of my dashboard. Made me feel “right comfortable” the first time I read it, as I hail from about 90 miles North of Dodge City, Ks as the crow fly’s and about 40 miles North of Old Fort Hays Ks, another great city on the plains of Kansas. Saying Howdy is the norm where I come from, much as it is in the Great State of Texas 🙂 .
So like the original article below, now with a years experience behind me enjoying publishing with WordPress . ORG, I was glad then and I’m more glad now, that this was the outlet I chose for my, hopefully positive, small contributions to the information revolution process.

Where To Start? That was a big question 3 years ago, when I started researching doing a blog or website. The answer in the end to my question, was WordPress Org and the reasons were not that many, but, they were deal makers. Freedom and Control were two key factors. The discovery of how wonderful the program was and the amount of really helpful information available on line, just frosted the cake! And the theme Smart Mag from Theme Sphere, just made that delicious frosting twice a thick! Yum! Yum!
I will have more to say about the subject soon, but, for opening day of MichaelThought Magazine, I had to compliment the tools that allowed me to get to this point. And compared to publishing back in 1983 with our first computer, this is a walk in the park or maybe even by the seashore. The result of so many talented people adding to the value of man kind by improving the simplicity of making thought available to masses is encouraging!
So, from downloading WordPress on Jan. 3rd and downloading my chosen special theme, now I’m on schedule to bring this site to (public) life on the first wkend in March 2016. Sure, there have been untold and uncounted (don’t want to know) hours spent at the keyboard and oh my, hours and hours more spent reading. But,now that the site is about ready to go live, I feel this program and it’s wonderful world of coders and widgets are nothing short of a blessing, for those that wish to speak.
More comments to come in the future.
