I realized today it’s been a little more than a year since I started to use WordPress blogging software. My first post was on January 7, 2009. I’ve grown used to it and think it’s probably better overall and easier for me than the HTML / CSS hand coding coding method I used to use. Not that it’s not good to learn HTML and CSS. Because I know these technologies, I can do things with WordPress that others cannot who do who do not know them.
WordPress blogs are easy for me to keep up with. Since my friend in Taiwan started to use WordPress for his Paradise Post blog, I can now keep up with him much better than when he used his former method of making web pages. What that was I do not know, but my Firefox browser didn’t seem to like it. It would freeze up on his older web site — on my Linux PC with near state of the art technology, a CPU not even a year old, (AMD Phenom II) and 4 gigs of DDR 3 RAM!
I consider the Weaver II theme to be the best theme for WordPress ever! The free version is much more powerful and tweakable that most of the paid version’s I’ve seen, and it even has a pro version to boot! So far I haven’t seen the need to upgrade to the pro version.
