Have been looking at WordPress themes to try and make this site look a little more interesting. So it’s likely that the look and feel will be changing quite a bit for a while as I play and learn about themes. Having had a brief look around what is available and possible, it does raise the question: “Why would you use anything else to create a blog or web site?” I mean it. Why would you pay a programmer / marketing company to create your website? And then have them charge you for applying updates or writing a content management system? For the majority of small (and many larger) businesses WordPress is an opportunity for both the designer and the client. Maybe job security is preventing many coders and designers from mentioning this at new business meetings?
btw – thanks to Mark Mapstone for pointing me in the right direction on how to use themes.
