Another blog change

After 8 years of using Movable Type software to power my blog, I’ve decided to switch to WordPress.

Most of you probably don’t know what that is or why you should care. I hope that it means a better blog for you, one where comments work better and where you can use Facebook or Twitter accounts to leave comments here if you want.

I took the opportunity afforded by this change to freshen the look of the site. It’s just a slightly modified version of the default WP template, but it looks good.

I liked MT, but it stopped growing in ways that are important to blog writers. What I like about WordPress are things like automated installation and the huge number of plugins available. MT seems to me a dying platform, and it didn’t make sense to stick with it anymore.

    1. Dad, I took the default WP template and made a few alterations that make it look a lot more different than it really is.

      I like the software a lot… the plugins are my favorite part. I’ve installed what feels like a bazillion already.
