As you might have noticed, I recently redesigned my site. I use WordPress, so applying a new template is easy if you know the basics. I added a few additional tricks:
- cool new header image
- the ability to subscribe to my blog posts via Feedburner, either as an RSS feed or through email
- better links to my Facebook and Twitter account
I tend to struggle with WordPress a bit. One of the things I learned while redesigning the site was that many of the problems I thought were WordPress problems are actually issues with my ISP. So I will be changing ISPs sometime soon.
I learned this from managing another WordPress site for a friend, and using another ISP. With that provider I do not have the problems updating my pages that I have with my ISP. I breathed a deep sigh of relief to discover that “it’s not me – it’s them.”
So please let me know what you think of the new site. Like it? Hate it? Any features you’d like to see and don’t? I plan to keep working on the site and start posting more, now that I have a handle on my WordPress problems.
