I actually run three and a half sites right now. But none of them were my personal weblog, so I finally found a domain name I like – even if I did have to make up a word – and started the is site.
When I went looking for blog software I looked a Moveable Type, but wasn’t sure it was free for my shareware company, so I looked some more and found Nucleus. Its written in PHP, which I understand, and that’s a good thing. Once you understand it it is also easy to use.
Next I had to find a look that worked. I’m a programmer, not an artist. But I ended up here via this path:
Dive Into Mark article that mentions a list of CSS resources
- That list of resources, which I went through looking for something I could understand.
- Like CSS Edge’s look the best, so I downloaded in a a couple others and then hacked them into what you see here.
I also upped my account at DreamHost from thier $9.95 account, which only allowed one domain to be hosted, to the $19.95 account which lets me have 3 and more bandwidth and MySQL queries.
