This is the obligitory blog post from a not-famous-at-all web designer who writes a blog post once in a blue moon about moving from one blogging platform to another. So it all started with a little blogging platform called Textpattern…
Those were good times. I built a blog using Textpattern and participated in the community a bit. I even used it for some client work. It wasn’t long, however, before I realized that something more robust was needed for client work. How I found ExpressionEngine, I can’t remember, but its discovery opened up a whole new world. Whereas Textpattern had custom fields through the means of a plugin, ExpressionEngine was all about custom fields and organizing content however you preferred. Yes, ExpressionEngine is amazing, but it’s really big. And yet I built another blog using the free version and wrote a couple of short posts. And then my blog died.
So, after all of that, I’ll be really honest about two things:
- I’m not a very prolific writer by any means, so don’t expect a post every week or even every month. Or every six months.
- When I do write something, don’t expect it to be Pulitzer material.
And away we go!
