… since this blog was first made and I’ve finally decided to get my hands dirty with PHP and start my very own WordPress blog. My opinion of WordPress has changed from the last time I tested out version one of their platform. I’ve always wanted to host one of my own for quite some time and I’m happy now that I have much more control over the blog than my previous host. The reason I chose WordPress was how easy it is to create my own skin and make customizations to their template engine. Upon some investigation I found that many of the features that I had in mind were already available in the wordpress plugins directory. This meant more time focused on the content and less on the “how to”.

If you’re interested in starting to customize your own WordPress blog then there is no better resource then the wordpress documentation codex on their website. You can find my “Chilled v1.0” theme that this blog is currently using in the downloads section. And finally, no WordPress blog would be complete without a twitter plugin.
