Hey kids. I told you there was going to be a big site redesign soon. As you discovered, my blog is no long on my front page. I’ve decided to let WordPress do most of the work for me. Including this site theme. Like it? I love it. A peek at the bottom says, “Design by Beccary and Weblogs.us.” Beccary does great themes. This is her newest one, and I’m really happy with it.
I’ve also gone plugin crazy. The ones that I really like are the Smilies (which I totally overhauled in the code of) and the Gravatars (which I just like the concept). I’m starting to adopt more of a “why reinvent the wheel” philosophy when it comes to the web. There are so many really talented developers and designers out there, why should I make my own inferior products?
This thing is so nice. I should have switched to WordPress ages ago. Though, at the time, I wanted to import my posts into my main page, and that proved to be a little more difficult with WordPress. That and I really wanted to take advantage of the WordPress features. So I’ve gone theme and plugin crazy on this thing and really got it to a point where I feel very powerful.
Also, commenting is now open to the public. No need to sign up for anything, though if you sign up at Gravatar, you can get your own custom picture in the comments. It’s totally worth it.
Also, if you want your own blog on Awayken.com, just email me at [email protected] and I’ll set one up for you.
