The Conference I WISH I Was Attending

The Conference I WISH I Was Attending

I hate to step away from this blog when we’re building such serious momentum, but I’m going to be away today and tomorrow.  In fact, as you’re reading this, I’ve already left for the weekend.  Yep, I postdated this post.

As much as I’d like to be on the beach pictured, I am going to a far less exotic location.  I will be attending Wordcamp Toronto which is a conference for people who use the WordPress software that runs this blog.

It should be fun, and maybe I’ll learn some cool tricks that I can implement into this blog to make it a more enjoyable and entertaining part of your day.

See you Monday!  (But there’s no guaranteeing I may not pop in at least once over the weekend if I can hijack my friend’s laptop.)

I finally had my ADD under control enough that I could sit down and preview all the WordPress templates.  This one is not a LOT different than the one it replaces, but I like the way it treats pages better.  I also like that the blog name is outside the banner graphic, which means I can rotate the header graphics without having to go to the bother of titling them.

I’m not fond of the way it underlines graphics that are hyperlinked, but… you can’t have everything.

When does the time go back an hour?  October?  Anyway.  I just realized the “clock” on WordPress was set to UTC.  While UK’ers might like that, it wasn’t doing much for me.


Sorry guys.  (And sorry for the spammy comments in the last article that I’m too undermotivated to delete.)

I didn’t like the old template.  It was too blah, but I was too busy to go picking through them to see which one I liked.

We’ll stick with this one for a while.  In case anyone is curious, I edited the screenshot with Skitch for Mac OS.  (Let’s hope it stays free after the beta is over!)  That’s also what I used for the the screenshots in the gear article I posted on the Council of the Sword blog.

Why on earth would I move my blog when I had such established traffic there?

  1. The Blogger template was really, really, really, REALLY beginning to annoy me.
  2. I am eminently familiar with the WordPress software because I run another blog with it that gets about a quarter of a million hits a year.
  3. My readers are smart enough to read the “This Blog Has Moved” post and find their way here.
  4. WordPress simply rocks.
  5. ‘gnomergweedo’ was no longer an accurate description of the content of the blog, since I am in the process of relocating to a new server.

Thanks for finding your way here!  I hope to have more content (and maybe a better theme) shortly!
