I wasn’t very happy with the Blogger service (inflexible) and decided to give WordPress a try. I found a very nice theme (Structure) that is easy to work with and I think the new site looks very nice and allows for many “plug-in” features. As you can see the site has a bit of a “newspaper” layout and feel. You can get to individual posts a number of ways…by way of tagging, category tabs, popularity rankings, resent post, etc. WordPress is a very powerful platform that is open source and accommodates “open source” development from the users. I have included many plug-ins to add functionality to the site (Picasa Feed, Gravitar Avatars, and Guestbook).
As with any blog, the content is key. My desire is to use this forum for communication between our distant family members and I will try to do a better job of keeping everything up to date. As they…”The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. ;)
