Month: May 2016
I/We are officially moving. We’re moving houses as well, but I was talking about my blog. It has been hosted with Newtek (formerly Crystaltech, http://thesba.com/) and running on BlogEngine.NET (http://dotnetblogengine.net/) for years and it seems like I spent more time updating it then posting. I know that’s mostly my fault since I enjoy the technical side of it as much or more than the writing.
My work has slowly got me dabbling in WordPress, so I figured it was time to dive in and play with it more. I’ve officially made the move and it caused me to clean things up some in a good way. Though I’m not completely satisfied with the move yet, I’m glad I’m going through it.
For the most part WordPress is a huge upgrade from BlogEngine.NET. I did the whole .net thing because I worked with it and thought it would get me a good introduction into what was going on in the back end. Well it didn’t directly apply to what I was working with so it helped a little, but not a ton. The technical part of the blog should be a good adjustment for me to get used to php & Apache. Its the design part of WordPress I’d love to learn more about. I know enough CSS to cause problems and fix most of them, but I know I’m not doing it the “right” way. So the next big step for me is finding a theme I like and can play with, then to eventually try to build my own.
By the way the family is moving from Omaha, north a few miles to Bennington. I’m ecstatic about the move and our house should be completed by October. Maybe in the future I should write more about the specifics of both moves, that would be fun.
