It has taken a while, but I have finally gotten around to migrating my site onto WordPress. There are a few reasons why I’ve moved to WordPress, but the main one was I needed to get into how it all works.
Many people have many different opinions about this system, but it is one of the most popular blogging platforms. Also more and more people are starting to use it as a CMS rather than just a blog. Just the other day whilst having a quiet drink in my local pub, I overheard someone recommending WordPress as the best way their friend could get a site up and running. I know at some point I will need to use WordPress for client work, so I’m getting in to it before I suddenly have to.
Anyway, here it is. This is my first WordPress theme built using a design supplied by the very nice people at Brown & White. Cheers Susie.
It’s not finished. Not by a long way. I’m working on making the output fully HTML4 strict, rather than WordPress’ default XHTML, mainly as an exercise for myself and mainly as a prelude to HTML5, but that is something for another post. There is also the portfolio section to add so you can see all the good work that I produce. The portfolio section is almost ready. Also, it isn’t totally portable as I know no-one else will be using this theme, but as a start I’m pretty pleased with it. Let me know what you think.
