I started my blog in 2004, and this is the second design I have used for it. It is always difficult to design something for yourself, when there are few constraints. I had to think about something that would represent me. I wanted to use bright colours, and to include the butterfly icon I had been using for many years. This design, again, was a collaborative effort between my partner and myself.
Although I prefer to do most of my work in Drupal, I continue to run this site on Wordpress. This gives me a broader understanding of popular content mangement systems and adds diversity to my skillset. It is also interesting to follow the user interface developments in Wordpress, and to consider how similar problems could be solved in Drupal.
