I finally settled on the free ‘Just Write’ theme after stumbling through a bunch of crap that had my blog looking like an advertisement for someone else’s crap. I think it’s pathetic that designers are taking advantage of other people’s home pages to sell themes and shit. Because that is all pure shit and no art.
No theme allowed me the ease of customization that I expect to see out of any software, so I am just going to run with a stark page design for now. Maybe I’ll design my own, but that isn’t likely, WordPress has too many rules to follow, and I love the freedom to code in pure HTML5 and CSS3. So it isn’t likely I will be designing any WordPress themes as the whole templating system requires learning a bunch of useless crap.
If I can’t design it in HTML5 and CSS3, it is pointless. But WordPress has its own conventions that are too restricting for me.
You may ask why even put up this WordPress ‘blog’ site, then? I’m checking out the products I sell. This is yet another managed WordPress site. I may reveal more (like where to get it) once I have figured out how to make it a bit more presentable.
I actually prefer using more flexible content management systems, but I have to know about the products I sell, what they are, how they work, what they can do.
