I have wanted to do this for months now and I am finally getting it done. I am not sure if I will post everything for OIP here or have a separate one - my desire is to use the OIP one for a help/information system about all OIP IT issues and this one for personal thoughts on work issues.
Setting up the blog was very simple. I didn't go through all of the options as there are many. But I was able to initialize and configure a site in less than 10 minutes.
