Heeeey…I have a new website. It’s very much a work in progress, but I needed to make it live now because it’d probably have been another year before I finished completely. As I mentioned a couple posts ago, the new site is powered by WordPress. However, I mostly scrapped the theme I was working on in favor of a heavily modified Twenty-Ten and Nivo Slider for a homepage header. The theme is not too unlike an idea I’ve been playing around with on my work blog, which itself was inspired by another theme called Dusk to Dawn.
Besides the other reasons I gave for switching to WordPress in the aforementioned post, which in summary were:
- Visitor commenting
- Full-featured backend
- Familiarity from using at work
I also just don’t have time to code my own site from scratch anymore. And this is fine—I get enough coding websites at work—and will allow me to focus more on posting and other projects. Speaking of other projects, I finished another map for Company of Heroes over winter break. It’s a remake of a map from the original Red Orchestra. It’s also on FileFront.
