 About This Website

I’ve looked at WordPress for many years thinking, I’m a software developer and as a developer I think of creating websites in HTML, CSS and usually the .Net Framework. From the bare metal up sort of thing. But recently my thoughts have changed. WordPress is not just a blogging platform but is now considered to be an extendable CMS (content management system). It is also more than that. WordPress is often used as a framework for developing custom sites.

This site is my way of seeing what WordPress can do and have some fun at the same time. Not just a showcase of what I can do but more what I enjoy in life. I’m not going to be updating this site on a regular basis, but it’s a great way of seeing how a website can be quickly brought to life and grow when you have a busy life and other more important things to do.

It’s also a good lesson in business. When a company wants a website to have a presence on the web. Do they want to pay for a developer spending days getting the HTML carefully crafted or do they want results in a matter of hours? The answer is simple.
