I’m bored with all of my blogs. I want new designs, new ideas, something to spice things up. I haven’t been posting much at all. In fact, other than this blog, I’ve actually gone months without posting which just isn’t like me. I’ve got a few ideas rolling around up in that noggin of mine, but they will take quite a bit of time and effort to implement.
One thing I’m considering, which will save me a lot of time in the future is switching over to WordPress MU. It may seem like a bit much to run my personal sites on, but it would really simplify the upgrade process. Right now I’m running three different blogs on WordPress and have to update each one separately when there is a new version. I intend to add at least one more to that list in the near future and would like to convert my mom and sister’s sites over as well. That would be six different sites to maintain and update. Of course I’ve never used MU, so I may have to play around with it a bit before I’m really ready for the switch.
The technical part actually seems really easy when I compare it to the design part. While I absolutely love designing it has been quite a while since I’ve actually done it. I’ve never designed a WordPress site from the ground up, which is what I would like to do. I usually find a pre-made template that is similar to what I want and then tweak it from there. That usually ends up in frustration because I can’t get it to do exactly what I want it to do. The only way to really fix that is to do it myself. That is going to take a lot of learning and I’m just not sure that I have it in my right now.
Oh, and I would like to have all of this done before the baby comes. Yeah, right! I just know that if I wait until after Baby G is born the whole thing may never happen. For some reason life gets a little hectic when you have a newborn baby around.
Anyone want to help?
