Okay, okay, I admit it – I’m a geek and I like to tinker. Last month, I moved from Tumblr to WordPress because I was looking for more flexibility in the system. Since then, I’ve learned so much that I decided to dive into building my own WordPress theme. I wasn’t able to get the custom theme I had modified to do exactly what I wanted.
Having done that, taught more than I could have imagined about HTML/CSS/PHP and the power of resilience (and
a little a whole lot of help from Google). It was frustrating at times and I banged my head against the wall, but after a 5 hour coding session on a Saturday afternoon while my wife was at a baby shower led me to what you see here. There is a lot of dust, mainly because I wanted to ship this theme, even if a few of the edges are rough. Also, creating this was taking time away from writing on this site, which is the real reason why we’re here anyways.
