The Shaw Show has been my blog on Google’s Blogger since May 2010. In the last year, I have noticed that I like to solve a lot of mathematical problems. This involves some complex notation. While I found that I could mark up some mathematical notation using Blogger, it did not look nice.
I found out that WordPress works well with LaTeX. For example, here is how one would find the expected value of a product of two continuous random variables in a multivariate setting:
That does not need to make sense to you at all. It is just illustrating how elegant math can be displayed in WordPress.
I plan on working through daily lessons through Blogger University to slowly build up and modify the site. For the next 14 days, I will be working through “Blogging: Fundamentals.”
Categories & Tags
Ideas for categories and tags for future posts include the following:
- Travel (with Pleepleus)
- Personal Improvement
- Problem Solving
- Teaching Demonstrations (that will hopefully help in understanding problem solving posts)
- Hobby Posts (cycling, home brewing, etc
I can hardly wait to get started. Hope some of you will enjoy this adventure with me.

Dude! I very much approve. Your new site looks great, buddy. Can you import your old content?
Hopefully, that question will be answered as I learn about the WordPress world.
I’m no expert, but I’m at least competent when it comes to WordPress. Send any questions my way, any time. And send the hard ones to Jerry.
Here’s a Blogger to WordPress guide, btw: https://en.support.wordpress.com/coming-from-blogger/
