I have had a blog at Alistair.com for around 12 years now. At the beginning it was a simple ftp down > edit html > ftp up. Now it’s WordPress and though I am nowhere near as prolific as my friend Derek, I use this site extensively for many other projects that are not public.
As a faculty member at BCIT (in Web Development, no less), you’d think I would have a nicer web site, or at least on that is current. Alas, I have constantly struggled with my writing and end up abandoning many posts because I get frustrated with the process.
None of that should prevent me from working on template and the interactions on the site, though. I thoroughly enjoy assisting my students achieve their potential when crafting their own creations, but somehow I slow down when working on my own.
So, I have reverted the site back to the default design that comes with WordPress until I can put the time and effort in to build something I am proud of.
Let’s see how long that takes.
