Spring Break Coming to an End

The end is in sight for spring break. Oh well, I've had fun.

As far as design is concerned, I've learned quite a bit more about wordpress. I've even edited the admin login page to match the site theme. Am I pretty much the only one who will ever see that? Yeah, but it makes me happy, heh. I'm also going to be adding a new page to the site I made for my work, the Louisburg Animal Clinic, for our new groomer. Nothing too exciting, but a little work here and there.

Learning Wordpress

Recently I've decided it would be a good idea to learn how to use and tweak wordpress. I went to wordpress.org and downloaded all the necessary files, uploaded them to my webserver, and had it installed and running within an hour. Although as a side note to anyone who might try it, make sure you have access to a mysql database on your server, otherwise it won't work. I figured out the basics and started adding plugins, downloading new free themes and then altering them to look the way I wanted.

Well, a few days ago my girlfriend and I decided to change our photography website over to wordpress so we could have a blog and it would be easier to log in and change things from any computer without the use of html editing. We found a cool template, edited it quite a bit, and uploaded examples of our work just like our last site. Now it's easy for both of us to work on it, you don't need dreamweaver or a knowledge of html and css.

Welcome to my new blog site!

Well, I've never done a blog site before. I thought it would be good to put an actual post on here to see what it would look like. As far as my current design is concerned, I intentionally left the background white and tried to stick to a simplistic, yet stylish (I think) look.
