First thoughts on WordPress

23 Mar
My first impressions of using WordPress
Good points :
  1. Much better tools and interface for authoring / managing posts
  2. Cleaner management of the overall page layout
  3. I can access it from work (for now…)

Bad Points :

  1. Much more limited in tweaking page appearance (for free blogs) and can’t add “embedded” widgets, like the photo slideshow I used to have
  2. Can’t seem to get my domain URL (www.benturner.org) to redirect here yet (ok, that’s not WordPress’ fault, but it’s still annoying me)
  3. Interface doesn’t use all the screen, sometimes makes it feel quite “sparse” on the front page.

Just my first thoughts. Back to proper blogging soon, once I’ve finished blogging about blogging…
