Thoughts about what I want in a theme

It’s been way too long since I start­ed, but did­n’t actu­al­ly fin­ish, the process of mov­ing all the old arti­cles on this site over into Word­Press. I got bogged down and did­n’t real­ly fin­ish, so the site stayed half-done and sucky. Now I don’t know if I should even both­er fin­ish­ing. Part of the trou­ble is that those arti­cles are SO old that when I start mov­ing them, I get bogged down in updat­ing them and I end up rewrit­ing them, and it’s hard to fin­ish even one sec­tion!

Learning curve

Did HTML ever seem this intim­i­dat­ing?

The array of themes avail­able for Word­Press is absolute­ly over­whelm­ing, but I am a stub­born cuss. I want MY OWN theme. Of course, cre­at­ing one is not triv­ial, because I haven’t actu­al­ly learned CSS or XHTML yet. I’ve done just fine with my rusty HTML skills, since I haven’t been able to work out­side the home or done any heavy web work in years.

Oh well — I have a rea­son to learn now!

Please be patient 🙂
