Words With Jeff: Now with More WordPress

Perhaps you’ve noticed something different about this site since last night. That’s no illusion: I’ve finally moved my blog out of Google’s gardens and into the world of WordPress… Sorry, I’ll try to keep the alliteration to a minimum.

I’ve been wanting to make this switch for over a year now. Since I started managing the Capital Swing Dancers website, I’ve grown very familiar with WordPress and its vast array of capabilities and layouts. At the same time, I’ve grown frustrated with the definite lack of options on Blogger over the years, particularly when it comes to design; I simply never had the freedom to stretch my creative muscle with regards to the web design, and recent changes to Blogger have only exacerbated this problem.

Although the current layout is far from perfect, this is a giant step in the right direction. Over the coming weeks and months, I’ll be fine-tuning the design to suit my tastes, and hopefully making it a bit more exciting to look at (which means more pictures!). I also need to go through a fix some of my older posts, since many of the links and pictures didn’t transfer over as seamlessly as I had hoped.

So Welcome to the New and/or Improved Words With Jeff!!
