I’ve been making some changes to my site. While it’s always going to be a work-in-progress, I’ve changed so many things that I’m just going to go ahead and call it:
The Home page, sidebars, and navigation menus have had a major overhaul, and plans for improving content and page performance even further are underway!
Here’s a screenshot of what the development process looks like in WordPress (specifically, what it looks like to write this post):
WordPress is a great a blogging platform, and the basics of posting to a blog aren’t that hard to learn.
In addition to powering the popular blogging site WordPress.com (#18 site in the world currently), the content management system (CMS) developed by the folks at WordPress.org is a robust web design platform supported by a thriving development community.
This community provides a huge selection of free plugins, which can be installed into the main framework to add functionality (not unlike the apps you install onto your iPad or Android device). With a “theme” plugin, and/or a bit of CSS/HTML/PHP knowledge to get the layout right, custom sites can be built and updated with relative ease.
