I finally took the plunge and installed WordPress to maintain my blog. Joomla just wasn’t cutting it for the functionality I was looking for; plus, I much prefer the “feel” of blogs. I read numerous blogs on a daily basis, and I want to be able to contribute just as easily as I see everyone else.
I’ve had more than one installation of WordPress in the past. It’s an excellent blogging tool, and it’s free. Eventually, if my parents become even more confident in their blogging skills, I might even move them from Blogger to WordPress as well. For now, however, the simplicity of that tool is more important than their need for features. They seem quite happy with the way things work on their (okay, our) website, and why change it if it works?
That’s not to say it doesn’t need a redesign – it does. I’m thinking something more personal – but I don’t want to give away the design before it even happens.
I’m just happy with my new WP blog. The template’s cute, too!
