Things have been kind of quiet around here. Man, I hate it when blog posts start that way. However, there’s good reason for the silence…
You’ll notice a brand new site design! I just completed the final tweaks yesterday, and wanted to make the official announcement.
WordPress powers the back-end, and I used Shape by Ian Stewart as a starting point for the custom theme that you see. If you’re looking for a place to dive into WordPress, WordPress theming and more, check out Ian’s site, Themeshaper and its forums. You can learn a lot by browsing around the site.
Before the redesign, I used Ian’s Thematic to power my site. However, when I decided to create a new site, I wanted to learn more about WordPress theming from scratch, rather than starting with a WordPress theme framework. Shape, this tutorial by Ian, and a few other resources helped me learn a ton.
I hope you enjoy the new site as much I enjoyed creating it.
Story Practitioner Interview
A few weeks before I graduated with my master’s degree in interactive media, Kathy Hansen of A Storied Career interviewed me via email for her series on Story Practitioners. Check out my interview, and the rest of the series for some great insights into modern-day storytelling.
