Work slowly begins on my blog/web transition.
First, this personal blog, as of December 15th, has its own domain: dougkendrick.me
At some point over the holidays, I will move everything from my dpkworldwide blog over here and then change that one into my business blog. It is also quite likely that I will finally make the leap from my past hosted website over to a WordPress-only platform (but I have to figure out how to keep all my legacy stuff intact, especially my 2006 & 2008 Japan blogs).
I started thinking: You know, I should probably split my personal blogging items into a different place than the blog I want to use for my eventual “business” blogging.
However, I may not be using this one for a while–but I will eventually get all the stuff out of my other blog and over here…
As I mentioned in yesterday’s aside posting, I switched to a new theme for this blog and I’ve now tweaked it back into behaving properly. I really like the new look, especially the sans serif font and larger banner image sizes. Let me now if you think anything still looks weird…
In addition, I’ve beefed up the other pages here adding both to the About section with more about me and a quick bio, and the Anime section with a fuller explanation of my Anime-watching philosophy. You can access these pages from the menu above, just below the banner photo.
I will probably be adding more pages and other materials here since Apple’s announcement of iCloud means they will be doing away with the MobileMe web hosting I have been using. I plan on keeping some of my original web pages, especially business-related stuff, but it seems so much easier putting personal stuff here on WordPress.
Now that I finally tweaked my WP blog to start looking pretty good, I discovered the new Twenty-Eleven template. I think I like it, but it is causing a bit of pain. I will need to redo my banner images (you know, the ones I just finished creating…).
Anyway, please standby as I play around a bit and see if I like it. I especially like the sans-serif body font and the greater variety of Post formats (seven of ’em!).
