Happy New Year!

Yes it is half way through January. Since the New Year I have been busy with work and the new website. I have been very active blogging and have spent very little time writing blogs. You can track my steps through the internet via my stumble upon account. I don’t stumble everything I read but I do stumble good articles. So check out some of the articles and make sure you subscribe to my feed so you can keep up with my latest adventure. I promise to update more often as a resolution for 2008.

Welcome

December 20th, 2007 No comments

Welcome to my new website. I have moved from a traditional html style page to a content management system.

  1. It is easier to manage, not that I spend a lot of time on it.
  2. It is a great stable platform.
  3. I don’t have to code every new page.
  4. It is free!!!

So what is it? I choose WordPress. Why word press? I tried several different systems – Joomla, Mambo, and a couple other open source applications. After playing around and having troubling getting a clean install onto my shared hosting service I decided that the most stable system for me was WordPress.

Why a blog content managment system? Because these days I do a lot of blog reading and I don’t really have that many photos to share so why not start my own personal blog. Most of the blogs I read have are for profit by using some type of pay banner ad system or Google Paid Results. Though I think these ideas are great I think it takes away from the overall beauty of my new website. Right now it is clean, bright, and shinny. Why would I want to mess that up? So bask in the glow that is on your screen free of flashing banner ads and sponsored results. One day people may be willing to pay me for ads but until that day enjoy my website without ads.

As far as content or usability goes if you see something that needs to be added or subtracted let me know. Use the contact link at either the right or the top to shoot me a message.
