I have a public facing blog that I use to write things that are more, well, public-facing. It is based in WordPress and I have a theme on it that I am relatively comfortable with. I have been having to so a little bit of editing on that. It wasn't doing everything I wanted it to do, and in some senses still doesn't.
I had to deal with the fact that every time I went to a single post, there was no way to get back to the Home page. Very frustrating, and I considered the idea of just scrapping it and getting a new theme that would do the built in thing that I wanted to achieve. It is a mode of thought that I am discovering I need to dispense of rather quickly as I have to make things the way I want them, and not simply the way some guy in another country thought it would be cool to do. Not that I am dissing the framework itself, I like that and want to keep it, but I also want the whole thing to be set in a way I like going back through and reading.
Yes, I read my own blog from time to time to keep in check with myself. Once you get older you will realise just how much one can forget and needs to be reminded of. Some of the best notes I have ever used were blog posts that I wrote myself for exactly that reason.
It's all in a state of transition because everything does not have to happen today. As I think of things I will go try to fix them. Another thing that I have learned is that I have a way to get my code into a blog, and that is pretty much here. I am led to believe that with the packages at Highlights I could possibly be able to execute the same in my WordPress version, but who knows. I am considering just leaving the technical stuff mostly here. I have already put more here in two days than I normally could write in a full week before.
