Changing Themes After Three Years

After upgrading Wordpress to the latest version, I figured now was the best time as any to change my theme. The Mac-looking theme served me well for a while. Old Theme

But it was time for something fresh. There haven't been many updates to the old theme (Librio) since I first downloaded it. And Wordpress has been steadily moving along. The funny thing, though, is that I chose the current Wordpress default theme (Twenty Ten). It looks good. It is very customizable. And will be updated, as needed, along with future Wordpress updates.

We'll see how long this theme can stick. Right now, it seems to fill the niche just fine.

Publicly Announcing the Website To My Software and Consulting Company, Twin Roots

My company website is now publicly online.

Twin Roots, a software and technical consulting, contracting and development company has been active for about a year now. And while I have had an initial website up for the last month or so (basically so that I didn’t have to have the GoDaddy start page as the website), I have never really publicized it.

However, I have found what I consider a pretty good theme for my website and am happy enough with it publicly announce it here. I am using a *free* theme from Six Shooter Media (credits maintained on the web site, of course). I just liked the theme. It is simple yet different enough to where I think it can stand out quite nicely. I see an easy maintenance path for the site, being able to highlight current developments, work or products very easily.

I know a free theme is sometimes frowned upon for a business website. And it could be down the line that I have an original site created. But for my first go around, I feel this will do quite nicely.

I invite you to visit the site and comment on it, either through my email address provided there or right here on my personal blog.

Some items I am looking at adding in the near future are:

  • A company blog
  • Maybe a quick comment section to talk about items such as the site or its content

I am happy that I can get a presence for Twin Roots finally out there.

Change is, um, err, good?......

Well, I have completed my migration from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. I think it went well, but I will continue to have trepidation until things settle down a bit. I love this new theme. Good work, deniart. I think I will stick with it for a while (assuming it remains stable of course). Let me know what you think of it.

Anyway, I have learned a lot during this process. And, I am going to create an updated post to the one that proved to be relatively popular that talked about installing LAMP and Wordpress on Slicehost. There are a few things to add to that step-by-step guide, and believe me, I know that first hand. :-)
