New Blogging Software
… and you’ve probably noticed the new site as well. I’ll be continuously working on it, but it should allow me to do some fun things.
Basically, I wanted to try and centralize on one main technology so that I didn’t have pieces of sites all over the place. The more simple and streamlined it is, the more likely I’ll be to work on and update it! I decided on WordPress mainly because it was written in PHP. One new feature to note, is the availability of a comments RSS feed, so you can subscribe to any comments to this site also.
I’ve set up the site to be theme-able, so in the coming months I should be able to have some fun creating various layouts and themes for it.
Feel free to offer comments or questions!
