Yet Another Theme

I had to scrap that last theme, it would not let me change the “Blogroll” to something else.  I mean what is a “Blogroll”?  I don’t link to other blogs, and if I did, I would not call it a blogroll.  I suppose some people do get into this blogging community thing, and that is cool, but I don’t have time to do that kind of stuff.  I have some things that I want to say that I believe others could find useful at one level or another, and I want a place where I can share it with people in a modern fashion.  In the future, maybe I will link to some specific ones which share some good or interesting information, but for now, I am even coming up short with what to put on my “Aboot” page.

The theme I had to scrap was called “Slate“.  I decided to go with one which was clean, shadowed, textured, and just all around neat and simple.  This one is called “Fusion“, and I found it somehow following several links while investigating some RSS plugin that I think might be able to take and generate posts on this site from an RSS feed.  I was looking that up in hopes to archive and store old stuff I posted on my blogs in other locations like my MySpace account.

Moving forward with WordPress

Yay!  I have setup a new theme, and am pleased with it.  I set it up last week sometime, after trying all kinds of different ones that just didn’t have what I wanted.  Ok, so it is not really colorful or flashy, but it turns out this one seems to have a slick enough layout, it does not detract from the fact that this wordpress is there for the articles, not everything else around it.

I have also come to the conclusion that I will have all kinds of topics, screw the themed topic idea.  I have all kinds of stuff rattling around in my head waiting to fall out and splatter on a blog somewhere.  To tell you the truth, it is all connected anyway.  For example, my biblical world view and belief in God will reflect in all the things that I do and talk about, or at least I hope so, considering that view point means that I believe God put everything here, for a reason, and our lives should reflect that in one way or another.  I will also be replicating some posts onto another site, which from the get go, I planned to have setup as sort of a portfolio, and technical information repository.  I don’t want to get too caught up in making sure I only post specific things on this site, and not on the other, I will just copy as I see fit.

Now I will be tweaking the rest of this WordPress install, as at this moment, I have not even customized the about page.  For now I will keep it basic.  In time, I am sure things will change, but one step at a time.

I Need a New Theme!

Bleh…  Not a fan of the default theme, that looks nasty.  Ok, not to insult the wonderful people who put it together of course, but I want something with more color, less starchy blocky and plain.  I am a colorful person, often hard to figure out, and many people do not understand me.  I need a theme that can reflect a little more of my personality, with variety, color, and style.  I guess the search begins…. Well at least it will as soon as I have some time to do it.

An Actual Live Site on My Domain

Welcome to my blog.  It has been many years since I purchased this and a few other domains, so I figured it was about time I set something up on them other than the stuff that happens in the background that no one sees.  For years now I have used this domain and a few others to test technology and setup sites on various other platforms and hosting systems.  Usually it has been to test out a new control panel, or get use to a new system that I would support.  Often I have used them for development of different technologies or, for example, setting up and debugging a piece of software so I could get the developers up to speed on features I needed it to have before I could implement it in production.

This is a new day, and even though this is my first install of WordPress, this is going to be a publicly visible and active production site.  I have not yet set my mind on the exact theme of this site, other than the fact that I will probably be ranting about something in the technical realm from time to time, often related to my position as a Data Systems Specialist at Advantagecom Networks, Inc. We will see what comes up.
