lowkey redesign

July 17th, 2009

I have been working the past few weeks to make my site easier to update.  Some people may have noticed certain corners of the site getting dusty.  It was really rather embarassing.  My solution was to structure it around a blogging.

Enter WordPress.  This site is now using WordPress under the hood, but I have made a number of tweaks to the theme to make it look how I want.  It really is a great, powerful tool and made things very easy.

This tutorial was also invaluable to unlocking the secrets of WordPress.  I highly recommend it to anyone wish to set up a custom theme.  I did have some HTML, CSS and PHP chops going into it, but I’m not sure I would have gotten things off the ground without that tutorial.

Admittedly I am a little late to the party.  Blogging has been all the rage for several years now.  Confession time: I tried blogging at blogspot once and didn’t keep up with it.  (I may move those posts here now.)

So what is different this time?  Well, this time it’s really not about blogging in the traditional sense.  I will post more typical blog things from time to time (like this post).  It is really about an effective way to easily add content and keep it organized.  WordPress is giving me that.

If you are looking for old content, please be patient.  My plan is to backfill the blog with the old content and date it as close as possible to when it was originally posted.  That shouldn’t take too long.  If you are looking for something in the meantime, you can email me.

Always nice to unveil a site redesign.  It doesn’t come with it’s own smell (like a car), but nice none the less.
