My New Blog

January 31, 2009

Don’t worry, I’ll still have this one. And I’ll now have more time to actually keep this one updated, too.

My good friend Sheila and I are collaborating on a focused, local food blog, Mindful Plate. It’s been a long couple of weeks and I’ve finally got it mostly the way we want. I first started out experimenting with Movable Type after another good friend, Angela, installed it for me and showed me some of how to use it. After much gnashing of teeth I finally came to the conclusion that Movable Type is powerful and useful for some people but it wasn’t the thing for me. I don’t have the level of coding knowledge necessary to get the site looking the way I want and to maintain it, nor do I have the time to learn and get up to speed on what I would need to know. I also wanted to be able to do it myself rather than having to lean on Angela. She’s a busy lady in her own right.

So, Plan B. I switched over to WordPress.com. I was able to get things up and looking like I wanted and had a considerably easier time. In the future, I will upgrade to WordPress.org and migrate the whole thing to my server. In the meantime, I need to catch up with things that were neglected around here.

Please, visit the new site, bookmark it and let me know what you think!
