I keep getting comments from readers about the move to WordPress. I really do appreciate it! You have changed my perception about you! I used to think my blog readership is restricted to IT folks interested in Exchange Server, Security, Active Directory, and Windows. Thanks for all the comments – I now know a good number of you are interested in blogging, WordPress, and web design!
I haven’t written much about blogging other than the occasional post on moving to WordPress in the past. Longtime readers may have noticed the occasional post on typography (yes, a post about the Calibri font on an Exchange blog… but I’ve forever believed blogging should be fun! You’re welcome to skip the off-topic posts if you have no interest in them… :).
Some of you have written in that you like the design of the old blog (Exchangepedia Blog) and would like to have a copy of my theme when I have it ported to WordPress. As far as the design of this blog goes, post the move to WordPress I’m highly tempted to change things dramatically! Given time constraints it’s unlikely to be completed on the schedule I had in my mind, but when I do finish it I’ll make the theme available.
WordPress is like a breath of fresh air. This blog’s now running on WordPress 3.0 RC— I recently upgraded a test site to the pre-release code, and the seamless upgrade experience was impressive enough to prompt me to quickly upgrade this blog. WordPress also allows you to create non-blog web pages for your site, making it a great CMS for running an entire web site. It’s perfect for small business owners who can update their own sites very easily, and I’m loving what many theme designers are doing with it!
Please keep the comments coming, including comments on any design changes you like (or not!).
