As some of you may have read in a post that has since been deleted, I had made the switch to Blogger. The move was one made purely out of a feeling to change things up. Since this blog had been dedicated to a time in my life which I involved myself heavily with the open source community, I was looking to broaden my horizons and create another site. Of course, something so simple could not be so easy.
The first problem I ran into was that Blogger was still somewhat limited in its functionality when compared to WordPress. I have come to love WordPress and its seemingly endless customization options. Customization is important to me when personalizing a web site. Certainly there is not as much customization available as if I created my own web site using Joomla! or Ajax. However, for a free product, WordPress gets the job done just fine and I don’t have to worry about paying a hosting service or worrying that my server would crash.
The second problem is you, my dear readers! I found that articles that I had written over a year ago were still receiving page views, and minimal traffic was heading to my new site. In spite of this fact, I was determined to start promoting my new site. The question was, to whom? My volunteerism in open source or Linux have been completely drained as the busy school semester, car restoration, and friends have taken my time. All of these things are worthwhile, and I’m slowly getting back into the technology market and catching up on all the things I have missed. I want to be involved again, yet until the day comes that I find a good fit, both with my school and my interests, why then should I go to create something new when I already have a developed site with content and links all throughout the series of tubes known as the internet? I shouldn’t. At least that’s the conclusion to which I’ve arrived. This blog will be for the foreseeable future will be my internet home. Thank you, readers, for convincing me to stick with WordPress!
