I finally bit the bullet and scrapped my website. For the last eight or so years, this website has been running on my own custom code. I wrote it because I couldn’t find anything which was flexible enough to do what I wanted, and which was coded with clean and robust code. It’s been working pretty well, and it was fun writing it, but it was rather a pain trying to keep it up to date. So I’ve switched to using WordPress.. There are many advantages – and one of the most important, I think, is that there’s an Android app for WordPress, which means it’s really easy for me to keep this site up to date. Also, it’s nice to be able to have the site automatically use a mobile-friendly theme when viewing it on a phone.
I’m not quite sure at the moment how blogs, Facebook, Twitter and Google Buzz fit together, but I’m going to try to start blogging again and maybe find out. At the moment this site isn’t complete – I intend to at least add automatic Twitter updates and customise the theme, and then see how things go from there.
