As of this weekend, this blog now sports a brand new design as well as the WordPress software! After a week of careful planning and researching themes and plug-ins, I decided to make the switch from my good old ExpressionEngine suite to the popular WordPress blogging platform.
As I’ve already used WordPress for another blog of mine, Thy Old XBOX, I am very familiar with the workings of WordPress. Although ExpressionEngine has suited me very well for the five years or so I have used it, WordPress is still a much better platform for blogging. For anything not blogging-related, I firmly believe ExpressionEngine is the better choice. I’ve written another post on this earlier when I compared the two suites.
The process of converting from ExpressionEngine to WordPress was one which I might detail sometime in the future, one which was not as straight-forward as I had hoped.
For you users, there now comes a month or two of adapting to the new theme (which, by the way, is not my own work, sadly) and to have patience while I fix up the “About me” and “Contact” pages, as well as other things I have planned for the near future. Bear with me, for I believe this change is for the better!
