Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

It’s 11:40 pm on January 1st, 2007.

For 23 hours and 40 minutes, Bulgaria is in the EU.

For the first time in the last few weeks, I have installed a WordPress blog/website, and I do not intend to delete it ;-)

It’s a step forward – for me (and maybe not so big a step for humanity;-)

I was undecided up to the last moment – should I create two separate WordPress installs (one for each language, as I plan writing both in English and in Bulgarian), or should I go for one install, plugin-based WordPress way. Finally, the two separate installs way won:)

I’m not sure if it’s the best way. But I hope that this way will give me more power, more freedom – playing with website design, using plugins, etc. So here it is – you are reading now the English version of Optimiced. Curious how the Bulgarian version looks? Drop a look, then:)

After my first post will follow a period of translation, setting up variuos options, and… learning how to write:)

I plan to publish a couple of articles first on how I created this WordPress installs – I think, some of the small details will be interesting for a wider audience – concerning the UTF-8 encoding problem and MySQL, for example (the famous ‘file: wp-db.php in wp-includes, after line #43 insert SET NAMES’ issue – more on that later;-) and others.

But it’s quite late already… So here we are, first post edited.

More content will (hopefully) be created and published tomorrow. Have a good night!
