Since it’s a holiday week, I figured it’s a good time to throw the switch and cut over to a fresh blog platform. I opted for the “simplicity” of wordpress.com, partly because “everybody is doing it”. I’ve know people who are really familiar with designing for WordPress, people who used to work at WordPress and since I don’t want to overthink it, well, here I am. 🙂
I did toy with the idea of hosting my own instance of WordPress on Azure, but the reality of life means that I really can’t be worried about the “webmastering” of the whole thing. I really just wanted it “as-a-service”. I want some widgets and some columns and the ability to type and post. That’s it. Nothing crazy.
Anyway, let me know what you think of the new design. I’ll be doing more tweaks and updates over the next few weeks, I’m sure!
